    A follow up to the Borderlands series might be announced soon, as Gearbox has started teasing their plans for this year's PAX East. The company shared a picture on Twitter that features a desert and the words "Exit 3", telling fans to wait until March 28th to see what will be revealed. This on the nose hint seems to indicate that Borderlands 3 will see an announcement, and follows multiple other teases from Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford regarding the number 3. The last time we heard anything about Borderlands 3 specifically was two years ago, when a very early proof of concept demo was shown off. After that, the developers had never confirmed whether the game was being worked on or not, though Take-Two, the publisher of the series, has said that one of their "major" IPs is set to receive a new entry before the end of the next fiscal year. If it all adds up, we'll likely be seeing Borderlands 3 later this month.

    How many times has Magic Randy teased BL3 and never actually done it? I'd sooner eat a shoe than believe him.

    What project did they siphon the budget for to create Borderlands 3 this time?

    Hopefully we'll get triple of the amount of guns from Borderlands 2.

    I know the pre sequel was technically another dev team but I fail to believe they would have had no creative control.

    I loved Borderlands 1. More than I probably should. It had its flaws but it was good, and the DLC showed they had some clue about what to do.

    2 had reasonable mechanics but the story, the humour felt like it trying too hard and everything else felt a bit overloaded and failed to gel as well for me, though split screen co-op definitely did it for me (it is hard to screw that up, though some have managed it).

    I'd be so excited if they announced it and the release date was soon.

    Please let it not be true. Borderlands is one of the worst things.

    What is the matter with borderlands as a concept? Stylised co-op shooting in a dry and somewhat dark humour filled world. Can happily make a good game out of that, as indeed I would probably point at 1 with its DLC as an example of.

    And if we're lucky, double the number of useful guns!

    It is not the gun you have but who is firing it.

    All weapons will outperform those common slow-firing pistols, for example. Sure you can still do damage, but why bother when you have an inventory full of better stuff?

    Maybe they'll just follow the trend and announce a freemium borderlands mobile game.

    One of the songs featured in the game could be the classic
