Borderlands 3 is the third installment of the popular gaming series has been announced to be in development for quite some time now and the speculation regarding its release date is not getting tamed. Though the sad part is the developers are still not disclosing any detail about the new installment yet. Many expected some kind of revelation regarding the speculated part of the popular series during The Game Awards 2016 on Dec. 1. But all the expectations are in vain as the fans got disappointed once again. And just got trailer for the Bulletstorm: Full Clip remaster.
But Randy Pitchford from Gearbox Software recently announced that the studio has started the campaigning for this year. The CEO revealed that a Canadian studio has newly formed to go on with the working on a new game. But the said game was not yet specified. So the fans are again on the wondering zone whether the information regarding Borderlands 3 will finally arrive.
The twist of the story is the announcement was made through Pitchford’s official Twitter account. As seen on the tweet, Gearbox Software founded the Gearbox Quebec studio responsible for the development of a new game. The ‘game’ is now a mystery to all since the studio has not yet revealed any insight on what kind of game they are currently working on. But for some hopeful lot is none other than Borderlands 3.
Borderlands begins just after the Dahl Corporation’s abandonment of the planet Pandora as several fortune seekers, including the player’s character, arrive in search of the fabled Vault. The second part Borderlands 2 came with many technical improvements and followed four new characters.
Battleborn was released last year which is an online shooter that failed to perform the way it was expected. So it is expected the disappointments caused by Battleborn’s performance last year will encourage the Gearbox Software to shift its focus on developing Borderlands 3 very soon. Another reason to speculate the ‘unnamed game’ is none other than Borderlands 3 as the studio has positively hinted that Borderlands 3 is part of their next game in development.
Borderlands was released worldwide in October 2009 and the Mac OS X version was released on December 3, 2010 by Feral Interactive. Borderlands 2 was launched last 2012 while The Pre-Sequel title was released the following year. These games were meant for the ports of the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 as Borderlands: The Handsome Collection last 2015. Right now the fan base for Borderlands 2 has an on-going event which is called The Hunt 2017 where they must look for certain rare guns and show it on Twitch.
The fans of the series cannot stop waiting and speculating the release date of this addictive game and we hope the official date will be announced soon as there are too reasons for that!
