Could Randy Pitchford be teasing a Borderlands 3 reveal at the Game Awards?

Randy Pitchford teasing Borderlands 3 (2)

The year is slowly gearing down in terms of blockbuster releases (and what a year it has been), but there are still many weeks with many surprises in store before the year truly wraps up. Next month we’re getting not only PlayStation Experience, but The Game Awards – a traditionally reveal heavy awards show that has had names like No Man’s Sky, Telltale’s Batman series and more formally unveiled on its stage. And it seems that tradition will continue, if Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford can be trusted.

Responding to a rather random series of tweets, Pitchford confirmed that he would be at the awards show on December 1st to reveal something new. Gearbox last launched Battleborn to tepid reviews earlier this year, but it’s no secret the team has been working on Borderlands 3 for a lot of the year too. There’s no indication that it’s even close to ready, but the awards show might be a great place to give players their first glimpse at a new Pandora.

Of course, Gearbox could always surprise with something new entirely. It would be bullish to think they’ve managed to keep a new IP hidden away, but remasters of old titles and unwanted sequels to others (stay back in your hole Duke) could just as easily be on the cards too. Pitchford could also think that new content for Battleborn is exciting, but it would certainly be anti-climatic if that’s really what he has up his sleeve.

I’m hoping that I’m wrong, because its been long enough without some new Borderlands in my life. Battleborn just didn’t cure that itch, and I’m sure I’m not the only one yearning for a return to Pandora and it’s overly generous, loot filled enemies. The Game Awards will be livestreamed on December 1st, and should feature many interesting announcements.

      ^ This guy gets it

      Also – we don’t want to go explore the moon this time – we want one of the many Vaults … ala new planets ( as mentioned by the Original Heretic )

    As long as they don’t rush the game like they did with Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel.

    As long as snake oil Randy doesn’t just talk, but shows some actual game play footage.

    That would be pretty awesome. Still staying super vigilant in case they try some of the new age practices that game dev’s are doing.

    If it’s an upgrade to Borderland 2, then absolutely… if it’s the Pre-Sequel again, then NOPE.

    Most like a HD remake of the “Highly successfull” (actual quite from him) Alien:Colonial Marines game.

    Can we Pitch Randy out of a window please.

    Randy Pitchford is a poor man’s Gaben. No, he’s not worthy to lick Glorious Gaben’s toe jam.
