Many people wondered where Gearbox would go after their most recent game Battleborn launches on May 3, now it seems we have our answer. At a panel (which your truly did not attend sadly) yesterday at PAX East studio CEO Randy Pitchford said it’s no secret there’s “going to be another Borderlands. We don’t even know if we’re going to call it” said Picthford. “We could call it Borderlands 4 for all we know.”
Whole Randy can sometimes be a bit eccentric this is essentially a low key announcement that we will indeed be getting another installment in the much loved Borderlands franchise. With three games already completed and several expansions and extra content for the first three and all have been well received so it just makes good sense for them to do another. art director Scott Kester was named in the panel as also heading up this project (so expect the same look as all the other games) while writing will come from Mikey Neumann a veteran of the series, and the head writer for Battle born.
One small hint was dropped as to when this game will take place, Neumann said in the panel about scooter a character whom he voice ““I did this whole Scooter thing, then I pitch-shifted it up like seven semitones so it sounds like a chipmunk and it was the funniest thing I’d ever heard,” said Neumann. He added nothing was official at present, though.” perhaps a child of scooter? Either way I can for sure tell you that the game will feature twisted humor, a lot of bullets, and a decent story line.
Personally I have not played a Borderlands since 2 but maybe a new franchise will convince me that its time to come back to the cell shaded world of tomorrow.
