90 Percent of Gearbox Is Working on What "You Want [Them] to Be Working On"

There is probably a 90 percent chance that 90 percent of Gearbox is working on a new Borderlands game.

After the flop that was Battleborn, both critically and commercially, it's not surprising to hear Gearbox's CEO Randy Pitchford tease a new project over the past weekend at PAX West. In fact, at the moment an alleged 90 percent of the developers' production staff is "working on the thing I think most of you guys want us to be working on," according to DualShockers. Assumedly, that's highly likely to be a new Borderlands game.

The Borderlands series, as it was under Gearbox's gaze, technically left off with the underwhelming, mostly 2K-developed entry The Pre-Sequel. After that was something mostly unlike the Borderlands players knew, with the Telltale adventure series Tales from the Borderlands.

Since then, it's been crickets from the Borderlands property. With the heavy backlash against Battleborn, it wouldn't be surprising for Gearbox's unannounced project to end up being Borderlands 3, or at the very least, something that was just Borderlands related (which would make sense, given it's what Gearbox fans likely love most from them).

This unannounced, probably Borderlands-related project isn't the only thing under Gearbox's belt. Early in August, the team announced the tentatively named Project 1v1, a card game and shooter hybrid narrowly passing the recent card game trend in the shoes of Hearthstone, Gwent, and Artifact.
