Although Gearbox has already confirmed that it has been working on Borderlands 3 for some time, the company is in no hurry to bring the game to stores. According to studio boss Randy Pitchford, this is because the company is dedicated to creating an experience that really takes a step forward with regard to the experience offered to players.
Pitchford compares Borderlands 3 with what happened to Grand Theft Auto IV in relation to Grand Theft Auto III. While Vice City and San Andreas created “a cadence, in a sense,” they were “derived from the same engine in the same generation,” while the numbered sequence was a big step forward. “Rockstar knew what people wanted and expected, and they had to build that.”
“The easiest solution in the world would be to launch a bunch of Pre-Sequels, and we could have made a lot of money,” says Pitchford. “But I do not think this is – I think we need to find out what’s right. So let’s work on it, and when we think we find out – we will not announce anything until we have something worthy of an advertisement. And then let’s set expectations from that.”
According to him, the only expectation that should be created at the moment is “dude, it would be cool if there was another game, and I hope Gearbox is working on it.” The studio chief has already confirmed that at least 90% of his studio professionals are already dedicated to the project, which is not yet scheduled for release, although a technical demonstration of it was presented during this year’s GDC.
