Randy Pitchford and Paul Sage finally, officially announced and confirmed Borderlands 3 is in development at the end of Gearbox’s PAX East 2019.
Gearbox and 2K confirmed the highly anticipated Borderlands sequel is in development, though no Borderlands 3 release date, platforms, or price was confirmed.
Aside from the trailer, 2K has teased more information on Borderlands 3 should be coming on April 3.
The trailer shows off some of the new and returning characters for Borderlands 3. Randy Pitchford teased some of these characters earlier in the PAX East panel, including the new villains and Vault Hunters.
Gearbox released Borderlands 2 in 2012, and ever since there has been discussion around the presumed sequel.
Back in 2015, Gearbox said it wanted to make Borderlands 3 but that the studio needed help to make Borderlands 3 happen.
2017 gave us our first taste of what Borderlands 3 would look like thanks to a GDC 2017 demo showcasing a Borderlands world. Later that year we learned most of Gearbox was working on a game we likely assumed to be Borderlands 3.
2018 gave us no concrete information about Borderlands, but earlier this year signs pointed to a potential Borderlands 3 announcement coming soon, while a teaser trailer released yesterday heavily teased what would be Borderlands 3.
You can watch the gameplay teaser trailer below, which debuted during the PAX East keynote and confirms characters, powers, and locations from the much-anticipated sequel.
