Gearbox is ready to start on a new Borderlands game.
Gearbox announced, during it’s final panel at PAX South yesterday, that it’ll begin to start work on a new Borderlands game.
Randy Pitchford, who is Gearbox’s CEO, has said on Twitter: “We are recruiting for next Borderlands. This is the big one. Industry badass? E-mail me: firstname.lastname@example.org,”. “We want to hear from passionate and talented people to help us with next Borderlands game. Check our website!”
A whole bunch of new openings are available on Gearbox’s jobs page on their website. One that is included is for a writer who will oversee and direct the development of the story and who will also plot for a AAA title. Pitchford did not disclose information that the next Borderlands will be Borderlands 3, but he did call it the “big one”, so this seems likely!
Also in their announcement, Gearbox informed us that Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel will be getting campaign DLC that will take you into the mind of dear old Claptrap, and that tomorrow (Tuesday 27th January) it’ll be adding Lady Hammerlock as a playable character. Exciting things lie ahead for the Gearbox crew!
