Ever since Borderlands 3 has been announced, fans are going crazy about it. Going by reports, Borderlands 3 will come with a bang. The action role-playing first-person shooter video game is coming up with its third edition and has the online community going bonkers over it.
Using social media as a tool, Randy Pitchford, CEO of Gearbox Software took to social micro-blogging Twitter to give hints in what is being rumoured as the sequel to the first –person shooter game. He has posted a selfie clubbed with a caption, “During a shoot…I may or may not be a psycho bandit in the game that we may or may not be working on. Also, happy Bulletstorm launch day!”
A couple of months back in March 2017, at the Game Developers Conference held at California, USA, he hinted a tech demo of the technology that the studio is planning on using Unreal Engine 4, which as per him will engineer “the next Borderlands game.” But the images from the tech demo were not part of the assets which would finally make it to Borderlands 3, but it gave fans of the video-game a teaser of how the game would look like once it releases.
All these speculations confirm that Borderlands 3 is in the later stages of the production. The upcoming game in the game franchise could be made at the developer’s factory.
Almost 4 years have gone by since the last version in the franchise was launched way back in 2012. So, this seems a humongous wait for fans of the franchise. But, that does not mean that it would see its release anytime soon. Publisher Take Two has not added Borderlands 3 in its list of game releases of the fiscal calendar year of 2017.
In 2016, Borderlands 3 was stated by Gearbox and after completing Battleborn, they would concentrate on Borderlands 3. Scott Kester, art director of Battleborn has also stated that he will handle the art direction of Borderlands 3, on the other hand, Mikey Neumann, Gearbox Chief Creative Champion, will work on the writing. Speaking on the issue, Neumann stated, “I did the whole scooter thing, then I pitch-shifted it up like seven semitones so it sounds like a chipmunk and this was the funniest thing I’d ever heard.”
