Gearbox on the hunt for new developers for Borderlands 3


If you were ever wondering whether or not we would see a Borderlands 3 in the future you can put your mind at rest. Borderlands 3 isn’t in production as far as we know – at least, not yet – but Gearbox are hiring for it.

Gearbox chief Randy Pitchford posted a tweet earlier today, calling for developers to apply to work on the next Borderlands game. That tweet came following a tease during a panel discussion at PAX South over the weekend.

He later posted about the job openings again with the following successive tweets:

The real question is when we might be able to get our hands on this third numbered entry into the Borderlands franchise and, to be honest, we have no idea. What we do know is that Gearbox also has a portion of it’s developers working on other games such as Battleborn, the interesting looking first-person MOBA due out sometime in 2015, this means that it may be a while until we see anything resembling Borderlands 3 – We promise you though that as soon as we know anything you will too.

The most recent entry in the series was last year’s Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, which will soon receive a remastered release alongside Borderlands 2 on PS4 and Xbox One. Jenna reviewed the game for Continue Play back in November, and thoroughly enjoyed it – scoring the game 8/10.

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel! has continued the successful franchise of mayhem with another excellent game, bringing enough newness to an old formula that makes it feel like its own stand-along game rather than just a DLC add-on,” Jenna wrote in her Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel Review.
