Borderlands 3 could very well be in development

borderlands 3 be in development using unreal engine 4 in linux gaming news

Just recently in gaming news, #RandyPitchford issued a #Twitter post. Hence one of the most active video game industry voices. While constantly responding to fans, listening to feedback and #teasing about things to come. Since we all know that Borderlands 3 is on the way. Yet there isn’t that much information out there. All we have are a couple mock-ups and tech demos.

Also, during the the 2017 Game Developers Conference here have been screenshot of what Borderlands 3 could look like. Apparently there is a tech demo running Unreal Engine 4 being displayed. And since what was display was not concrete ‘in-game’ footage. Yet more of a tease. So the first glance of images from GDC 2017 don’t really show much change from we already know. Hence the standard Borderlands motif. While common sense and the current Borderlands game would certainly look pretty slick. Particularly if it is being built on Unreal Engine 4. Which makes sense as well, Linux support, Vulkan and better hardware optimised.

So as mentioned, Randy Pitchford likes to get us all riled up on Twitter. A few days ago he teased us with a shot of himself all dressed up in mo-cap gear. While this is Randy being Randy. Jokingly pointing out that he ‘may or may not be’ representing a psycho bandit in the next instalment. Hence a playable Randy Pitchford, kind of has a ring to it. A game that Gearbox may be working on.

So with E3 just around the corner. It could be very likely we’ll have more gaming news for Borderlands 3 very soon. More Tiny Tina or Claptrap. Either way, Unreal Engine 4 will be a huge leg out for Linux.

Do you see Borderlands 3 running Unreal Engine 4? And what frame rates would you expect with Vulkan support?

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.


According to Randy Pitchford – Borderlands 2 on Linux may not happen

Randy Pitchford says Borderlands 2 on Linux may not happen

If you remember, a few days ago Randy Pitchford, the head of Gearbox Studios tweeted showing interest in a Linux version of Borderlands 2. Then on #Twitter he was talking with people to see if it was indeed possible. Following that, he tweeted recently that he had discussion with the “concerned people” and has come to the #decision that a Linux version of Borderlands 2 is not going to happen anytime soon.

President of Gearbox Software, #RandyPitchford has tweeted that he will be having a chat on his #Twitter account about bringing Borderlands 2 to Linux platform.

Borderlands 2 was one of the #biggestgames of 2012 and released on almost all the major platforms except Linux. Many of the users have switched from Windows to Linux in last couple of years and that is why there is so much demand for the title on the platform.

Borderlands 2 was set in the world of Pandora just like the first game in the series. The players play as one of four different classes available with each providing their own unique gameplay style.

The game focuses on the online cooperative campaign and random loot, which can range from weapons, shields to some character building elements.

Looking at the popularity, sales and the demand of the game, it would not be much of surprise if developers do decide to port Borderlands 2 to Linux.

If you have further insights into who would be best suited for such work, post a reply to the tweet. Keep in mind, Ryan “Icculus” Gordon, S2 Games, and the Humble Team were already mentioned. In fact Icculus already replied to the tweet and we are hoping for good things.

Linux gamers are keen to see AAA titles, we know this already. The fact the Gearbox Software are paying closer attention is a good sign of things to come.
