At Pax South, during the Q&A session, the Development team got asked when we will be seeing borderlands 3. Gearbox software’s CEO Randy Pitchford responded to the question by giving the crowd a big tease. The honest answer was that they don’t know when it will be done. But it would be possible if you attended the main gearbox panel that they might have something more to reveal.
Randy Pitchford teases Borderlands 3
So borderlands fans were hyped up to go to the gearbox panel at pax south. But like always time is short and they didn’t get to the point where they could continue the discussion about Borderlands 3. So Randy Pitchford said that the undiscussed topics would be moved over to the borderlands panel. Talking about the past, present, and future of the borderlands franchise.
So during the borderlands panel, the development team is getting on topic about borderlands 3. And randy talks about how the team has grown during the development of the borderlands games. As the series continues the team has expanded. And for borderlands 3 that would mean that the team needs to evolve once again. So to be able to create borderlands 3 gearbox software needs more staff members. So if you got any gamedesign-related skills you can help out creating the next installment of the borderlands franchise. Gearbox Software is ready to get production started. So no big unveil with screenshots of Alpha footage. But borderlands 3 is coming. Only not anytime soon.

And one Borderlands fan asked if and when we will see Borderlands 3. Strangely the question was not shot down but Randy Pitchford gave a tease, suggesting more info about it on the Main Panel that’s being held on PaxSouth at the Main Theater.
