Randy Pitchford has confirmed a new Borderlands game to be in development


Gearbox CEO and president Randy Pitchford has #confirmed that a new Borderlands game will be the #developers‘ next #project.

Pitchford made the announcement during a PAX East panel, stating “it’s no secret, obviously there’s going to be another Borderlands“. However it may not be ‘Borderlands 3‘. “We don’t even know if we’re going to call it that. We could call it Borderlands 4 for all we know.”

Mikey Neumann, who voices mechanic Scooter in the main series, will be handling the writing. In fact, there is already a new character in mind, Scooper – the son of Scooter. “I did this whole Scooter thing, then I pitch-shifted it up like seven semitones so it sounds like a chipmunk and it was the funniest thing I’d ever heard.” Sounding more like Borderlands indeed.

The developer hinted is that Battleborn‘s DLC will have lots of references to Borderlands 3. Which may be the only way that Gearbox manages to introduce new expansion packs for its forthcoming game.

In other Gearbox-related news, characters from its upcoming Battleborn, which is due to launch next month for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC, will be made available as musicians in Rock Band 4.
