I'm not going to f**k around with you like Valve does with Half-Life 3
Gearbox boss Randy Pitchford isn't going to jerk fans around about expected sequels. Borderlands 3 is not yet in the works.
In an interview with Polygon, Pitchford shot down the idea that the team was quietly working on the next installment of the series. “We are not working on Borderlands 3,” he said. “That is unqualified. We have more to do in the franchise, but no there isn't a Borderlands 3.”
"When you think of what Borderlands 3 should be, it should be massive," Pitchford continued.
That doesn't mean fans won't see more Borderlands action in the future as Telltale Games has a new series, Tales From the Borderlands in the works as well as a few other projects but not a direct sequel anytime soon.
"We love Borderlands, and we know customers do too. So we will be doing more in Borderlands. But the thing that, when you think of what Borderlands 3 should be... No. We are not developing that right now. We don't know what that is yet. We can imagine what it must achieve, but we don't know what it is yet. I'm not going to f**k around with you like Valve does with Half-Life 3. Look. We know we want it and we know it should exist, but we don't know what it is yet. But we are doing things in Borderlands that we'll announce soon, that are good, and that I think people will be really excited about if you love the franchise."
So what is Gearbox working on? Elsewhere in the interview Pitchford said that teams are working on Furious Four, a new Brothers in Arms game and a remastered versions of the 2 Homeworld games as well as a brand new Homeworld title.
