Gearbox's Randy Pitchford confirms that work has not yet begun on Borderlands 3.
These days, the name Gearbox Software has become synonymous with two things: the infamously awful Aliens: Colonial Marines and the Borderlands series. Some would even argue that Gearbox is Borderlands, and with the stellar Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel now behind us, many assumed work had already begun on a new title. However, Gearbox's man with the plan Randy Pitchford has told fans at PAX South that work on Borderlands 3 hasn't actually started, although he is keep to begin.
"We want to think about the future and we want to think about what the next Borderlands is and we're going to need some help," Gearbox Pitchford said. "The fact is, we're not working on a new Borderlands game, but we want to."
Pitchford went on to say how his company was in the process of actively recruiting new talent for the as-of-yet-unannounced new Borderlands game. "If you are in the industry and you think you can help us, we want you to help us. We want to get started on a new Borderlands game," he said, adding "There's literally nothing to tell, but we're ready to start."
For a bit more Borderlands news, Gearbox also announced the third DLC pack for The Pre-Sequel, which is called The Lady Hammerlock Pack and will feature Sir Hammerlock's older sister, Aurelia, as a playable character. It also teased a fourth Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel DLC pack which will involve "going in the mind" of Claptrap.
