Borderlands 3 Release Date: It has been 5 years since Borderlands 2 was released and was loved both by the critics and the gamers. Randy Pitchford promised that B3 won’t make an appearance at E3 2018, and it happened exactly what he had told.
The sequel to the blockbuster action role-playing first-person shooter video game is, however, already confirmed. The BrotherLands-1, firstly released in 2009 for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X and Shield Android TV took the gaming world by storm, to be followed by BrotherLands-2 in September 2012.
Borderlands 3 Release Date
With all the hype and great amount of anticipation hanging with the fate of the game, the onus lies on the shoulders of the company to deliver on to the expectations. The launch date of Borderlands 3 is expected to be between October 2018 to September 2019.
Gearbox hasn’t confirmed that B3 is actively in development. So, they haven’t announced Borderlands 3 release date yet. However, Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick hinted that a highly anticipated new title from one of 2K’s biggest franchise is in development for the fiscal year 2019.
Borderlands 3 News & Updates, Rumors
Though there is no official confirmation, a recent leak on the Walmart Canada page suggested that Borderlands 3 isn’t far off. Wario64, a Twitter user, spotted it and took it to the microblogging site. The retailer posted pages for several unannounced games and it included B3 too. This is an exciting leak for those waiting eagerly to hear more about the game. Gearbox is yet to comment on this. There were some strange releases in there – Forza Horizon 5?
Another spin-off of the series, Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel! was unveiled by 2K Australia in 2014 and was supposed to be focusing on events somewhere in between the timeline of its two predecessors. Pitchford posted a selfie of himself while on work followed by a small readout, which goes something like this……
“Doing a shoot … I may or may not be a psycho bandit in a video game we may or may not be working on. Also, happy Bulletstorm launch day!”
Still, this is actually not the first time that Pitchford has hinted upon the ongoing project which can be the fourth sequel of the game.
From the looks of it, Pitchford is doing some motion-capture work for “Borderlands 3” although this is not the first time he has hinted at the existence of the game. At the recently held 2017 Game Developers Conference at the Moscone Center, California, he was demonstrating a technical demo if the new technology his team has been working on using Unreal Engine 4. He quoted that it will be used to “power the next Borderlands game.”
But that’s a different case that he also stressed upon the fact that it may not necessarily be “Borderlands 3″.
Back in 2016, Gearbox had confirmed that “BrotherLands 3” will surely be coming around somewhere in near future and that it will be the project they will work on after “Battleborn”.
“It’s no secret, obviously there’s going to be another Borderland. We don’t even know if we’re going to call it that. We could call it Borderlands4 for all we know,” Pitchford told Eurogamer.
There are mostly chances that Battleborn art director Scott Kester will be assisting with the art direction for “Borderlands 3″ and if all goes well, Mikey Neumann will head the usual writing department.
