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.
