Gearbox Not Working on Borderlands 3, Has Two New IPs in Development
Posted on Friday, February 14 @ 12:00:00 PST by Alex_Osborn
Despite the incredible success of Borderlands 2, Gearbox Software isn't working on a third entry right now.
"We are not working on Borderlands 3," Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford told Polygon. "That is unqualified. We have more to do in the franchise, but no there isn't a Borderlands 3."
Pitchford then went on to clarify that while Gearbox is currently not working on a new entry in the franchise, the studio plans to return to it when the time is right.
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. It would have to be a next-gen game and a current-gen game, if it was coming at any time in the reasonably near future.Instead, the company has a number of other projects on its plate, two of which are brand-new IPs. "We created Brothers in Arms. We created Borderlands. We acquired Duke Nukem. We acquired Homeworld. I'm building two original IPs for next-gen. I can't personally invest myself wholly in all of these things," he explained.
"So I invest myself in one or two things, and empower talent and creativity around me and beside me and in this vicinity. I do whatever I can to fuel that and let awesome people do awesome things. I love that feeling."
The final piece of Borderlands 2 DLC, Sir Hammerlock vs. the Son of Crawmerax, launches on April 15th.
