Gearbox Once Again Teases What is Almost Certainly Borderlands 3

Gearbox Once Again Teases What is Almost Certainly Borderlands 3

Make a run for the Borderlands.

Brace yourself: Borderlands 3 is coming. While there hasn't been an official word from Gearbox Software on the matter, the studio behind the popular looter-shooter series ever-so-coyly suggested on Twitter that an announcement is coming at PAX East in Boston later this month.

The incriminating Tweet was made earlier this afternoon by the official Gearbox account. It contains a picture of desert highway sign directing drivers to Boston, with "March 28" spraypainted in the Borderlands font. There's also a hastily-painted "MA," just in case you're unsure which Boston is being referenced here (to be fair, I checked. There are over two dozen "Bostons" in the United States and four in Canada). Note the clever little "Exit 3," too.

Gearbox hasn't been shy about tipping its hand until this point, either. Last month word came in about the studio's plans for a big panel at PAX East. The shindig promises "never-before-seen reveals, exclusives, and surprises." Seems like a trip back to the Borderlands is imminent. Better make sure you're up to date on all your vaccinations.

Moreover, Gearbox Software founder Randy Pitchford revealed the studio is working on a "highly anticipated title" during a financial briefing back in May 2018, though he admitted the title was delayed. "The highly-anticipated title from one of 2K's biggest franchises, which has been planned for release during the current fiscal year, is now planned for launch during fiscal 2020 to allow for additional development time," Pitchford said during the call.

Well, 2020 is around the corner (yikes), so if you're looking forward to Borderlands 3, that's your cue to get hyped up. We'll tell you all about it if-and-when the news drops at PAX East.
