Gearbox Software has yet to reveal the Borderlands 3 release date as of late. Potentially, the developers might be planning to reveal the game at E3 2017 next month. Here’s some hints of Borderlands 3 appearing at E3 in June.
Gearbox Software has long confirmed that their next game after Battleborn would be Borderlands 3. However, promotions and official announcements about the game are scarce and often come in teasers. The last Borderlands 3 tease was last April with Gearbox Software’s Randy Pitchford wearing a motion capture suit. Fans are still waiting for more information about this title. However, the Gearbox Software Twitter has repeatedly posted Borderlands content this May which could be their way of refreshing their fans about the series.
Little Information known so far
Most of Borderlands 3’s in-game information are known through teases from Gearbox Software’s other game, Battleborn. An unknown source invites the Vault Hunters to a planet named Prometea. This unknown contact also warns the Vault Hunters about Patricia Tannis. Potentially, these unknown contacts could be the Eridians which have constantly been kept mysterious throughout the series.
Information about the new systems or even playable characters have not been revealed. Gearbox Software really hasn’t spoken up much of Borderlands 3’s contents.
E3 2017 Potential
Currently, Gearbox Software has admitted that Battleborn was a failure, which means their focus might have shifted now on Borderlands 3. E3 2017 seems to be a good avenue of announcing Borderlands 3 details as the series has a good amount of audience in its ranks. The official E3 site doesn’t list Gearbox Software among their exhibitors this year. If Borderlands 3 is going to appear, Gearbox Software might show up in the main stages of Sony, Microsoft, or any PC-related shows on the event.
The Borderlands series is known for its three main entries and a spinoff from Telltale Games. The main series (1, 2, and Pre-Sequel) popularized the series through its party-focused adventure gameplay and its excellent humor. Meanwhile, the Tales from the Borderlands spinoff gave the series a large potential to extend its story. Both Gearbox Software and Telltale Games’ Borderlands entries have been popular ever since their release.
Picking Up Where The Sequel and Pre-Sequel Ended
Borderlands The Pre-Sequel’s ending an alien requests that they’ll need all the Vault Hunters they can get for the next conflict. Meanwhile, Borderlands 2 reveals a space map of Vault locations on planets other than Pandora. Gearbox Software’s writing has already set up the adventure and even a pool of existing characters for Borderlands 3. For now, we’ll just have to wait until Gearbox Software talks about the next Borderlands entry.
