The internet loves to misinterpret interviews and quotes, but thankfully we have twitter where you can get information straight from the actual sources behind things.
Of course, I am speaking of an interview Borderlands 2 lead writer, Anthony Burch, did where he was talking about Borderlands 3. So, this lit twitter ablaze with everyone talking about Borderlands 3 being in development. Did everyone forget that Borderlands 2 is only a week old? Why can´t people speculate on a future sequel without rumors getting out?
So, the head man in charge at Gearbox, Randy Pitchford, took to twitter to squash all the definitive “Borderlands 3 is in development” talk.
“Chill out internet. No one has started working on a sequel to Borderlands 2,” he wrote. “It’s fun to talk and think, but actual effort is focused on Borderlands 2 DLC, Aliens, etc.”
“Clean and Simple truth: The only Borderlands related game development work going on right now is for Borderlands 2. I expect that to change at some point, but that is the state of the box at this moment in time.”
Borderlands 2 did announce a $29.99 season pass a few days ago so I am sure that means we will get plenty of DLC content to keep us busy whenever the next installment does go into development.
