Looks like Randy Pitchford is teasing Borderlands 3, again

Borderlands 3

Randy Pitchford, CEO of Gearbox Software, is winding people up about Borderlands 3 on Twitter again. Maybe this time it will be different, though.

Remember that time when Randy Pitchford showed off some custom cel-shading technology, during a GDC 2017 talk, that definitely wasn’t pre-alpha footage of Borderlands 3?

And then there was that time when he was photographed in the motion capture studio, recording some performance for a “psycho bandit” character that definitely wasn’t for Borderlands 3?

Well, now he’s at it again. We mean, he’s up to something, at any rate.

First of all, he tweeted this:

And then this:

And finally, this:

That’s a lot of threes, which means one of two things:

The first possibility is that Randy is getting ready to drop a proper Borderlands 3 announcement. This could very well be at The Game Awards 2018,  especially since Geoff Keighley has teased 10 new game announcements – including this one from Obsidian for something called Project Indiana – for the evening of the show.

The second – very real – possibility is that Randy is still just winding us all up about Borderlands 3. That’s entirely possible. It wouldn’t be the first time he’s done it.

But given the less-than-stellar reception to Fallout 76 and its lurch from narrative to MMO, isn’t the world just crying out for a proper post-apocalyptic RPG shooter that you can also play with your friends? We hope it’s the latter.

We have a favour to ask

Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
