Much to the dismay of the millions of Borderlands fans out there, Borderlands 3 isn’t not currently in development. In a recent interview with Polygon, Gearbox Software president and CEO Randy Pitchford said “We are not working on Borderlands 3,” But this is not a definitive statement as Gearbox is too busy right now developing two new IP’s.

While it’s a little heartbreaking, this could be good news. Pitchford went on to say, “When you think of what Borderlands 3 should be, it should be massive… It should be bigger and better than Borderlands 2. It should carry forward the story. It’s probably crazy multiplatform, depending on timing.” This should be good news to Borderlands fans given the massive cliffhanger that Borderlands 2 left off with. “We love Borderlands, and we know customers do too. So we will be doing more in Borderlands. But the thing that, when you think of what Borderlands 3 should be… No. We are not developing that right now. We don’t know what that is yet. We can imagine what it must achieve, but we don’t know what it is yet.” In the meantime, Borderlands 2 is being developed for the Playstation Vita and Telltale Games, the studio behind The Walking Dead and The Wolf Among Us, will be releasing Talks of the Borderlands. A game to which Pitchford said “hell yeah.” For those who may still be worried that Borderlands 3 could end up like Half-Life 3, to date, Borderlands has sold over 4.5 million units and Borderlands 2 has become publisher 2K’s highest selling game of all-time shipping over 8.5 million copies worldwide. So it is highly likely that Gearbox Software will return to the franchise and not emulate Valve. Check out the full interview to read more on Gearbox’s plans and Ptchford’s exact words towards Valve.
