Gearbox Teases the Next Borderlands Title at PAX East

By NicoleRenee00,
Gearbox recently revealed big news for fans of the Borderlands Series. For those who are eagerly awaiting the next big sequel, you may be in luck, as a recent Twitter post suggests that a reveal is on the way. The image includes a highway sign in a familiar art style, with a date and location for March 28th in Boston, Massachusetts. Notably, the location of PAX East this year.

It didn't take long for fans to note the number three at the top of the sign; a not-so-subtle hint that this news likely pertains to a new sequel in the series. It's certainly no secret that Borderlands 3 is on the way, as Randy Pitchford, Gearbox's CEO and president, has hinted at a new installment numerous times over the years. That being said, the reveal at PAX East might be the first tangible look into what's to come.

If this truly is the sequel we've been waiting for, then what elements can we expect to return to the series? The iconic, illustrative art style? The dark and unpredictable sense of humor? And for that matter, will the formula remain the same? With online multiplayer becoming a larger trend in gaming, it's possible that the role-playing shooter will take a different direction in the future, drifting away from the classic, co-op campaign that it's known for.


For now, all we can do is speculate. We'll know more about the reveal once PAX East arrives on March 28th.
