Borderlands 3 Frequent Asked Questions
No official announcement has been made, but Gearbox President, Randy Pitchford, has confirmed that the game is in development. Also David Eddings, the original voice of Claptrap, spoke about it during a VO panel.
Gearbox Software is targeting the current console generation (PS4 & Xbox One) for Borderlands 3. A Nintendo Switch version was being talked about, but that discussion stopped for some reason. Obviously they will be doing a PC version, however its unsure if there will be a Mac or Linux version of the game like with Borderlands 2.
During the tech demo Randy Pitchford mentioned that their tech would also work on different environments/planets. Not confirming that this would be the case in the next Borderlands but he does puts it out there. However the Borderlands Easter Eggs in Battleborn suggest that the vault hunters will travel to another planet.
Unknown. No such mode has been announced or hinted at. There is a current trend in Battle Royal modes, if that’s still the case when Borderlands 3 will be released has to be seen. Randy always says you should play to strengths and currently I think online multiplayer isn’t one of them.
There is a rumor that Microsoft acquired the exclusive marketing rights. This would only mean that Microsoft will promote the game. You will still be able to get in on the other platforms. I would like to point out again, it’s a rumor.
