Gearbox boss Randy Pitchford has done one of those outrageous acts that make other game developers' and their publishing overlords' hearts palpitate.
He's made an outright, no-holds-barred, unequivocal statement regarding what could be a massively lucrative sequel to his Borderlands
"We are not working on Borderlands 3
. That is unqualified. We have more to do in the franchise, but no there isn't a Borderlands 3
More DLC then? Or an MMO?
"When you think of what Borderlands 3
should be, it should be massive", he said. "It should be bigger and better than Borderlands 2
. It should carry forward the story. It's probably crazy multiplatform, depending on timing. It would have to be a next-gen game and a current-gen game, if it was coming at any time in the reasonably near future."
Massive? One more thing Randy is sure about is that, "I'm not going to fuck 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."
