    Gearbox have been torturing fans with hints about a new Borderlands game for years, but it looks like an official announcement could be about two weeks away. Gearbox's official Twitter account recently posted a cell shaded sign with the words "March 28 Boston MA," which lines up with the company's scheduled event at PAX East. We still don't know much about what is presumably Borderlands 3, but Gearbox's marketing team have been constantly posting Borderlands-related material throughout 2019.

    It's hardly killing me. The game is at least a year away from retail release, so at this point i's jst more tormenting us with videos of demos/trailers.

    They've already forced me to wait thanks to the shitpile that was Battleborn, and now I can wait another year.

    I'm going back to playing Apex Legends, which has the small cooperative squad aspects of Battlefield 2 coop, and you can actually play it now :D

    I'm worried. Other than Borderlands, Gearbox has never made a good game. Randy Pitchford seems like he's going off the deep end. And this game is 3 or 4 years overdue so who knows if any of the people responsible for the first 2 games are even still at Gearbox.

    Here's hoping they don't just rehash Borderlands 2 with a new map. I thoroughly enjoyed BL1 and 2 when they launched, but the Pre-Sequel proved that they can't just take BL2 and add some new characters and a map and expect it to be as good as the previous titles.

    The space thing and oxygen pretty much ruined that game for me it was so annoying. And the environment just felt empty (i know its the moon).

    All I want is the graphic violence of 1, the guns of 1 and 2, mixed with the heroes and story of 2.

    Your calling Duke Nukem Forever and Aliens: Colonial Marines bad?!? /s

    Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition wasn't bad, nor was Blue Shift for HL IMO. Never played Homeworld or Brothers in Arms.

    BL3 and Doom Eternal are the only 2 things I'm truly excited for, hoping we'll see both sometime this year (I know, BL3 this year might be a bit of a stretch)

    Reserving my excitement as I have a feeling this game may have been heavily motivated by politics as was the direction of the pre sequel and supposed recent hiring practices at gearbox. Too much of this happening in games lately.

    I just want to be a fake person (of my choosing) that blows crap up while taking an actual mental break from reality.

    I thought Bulletstorm was People Can Fly. Didn't play Blue Shift. Homeworld remastered wasn't their game, it was a remaster, and it was buggy as shit for me.

    Bulletstorm was, but the Full Clip edition was a remaster by Gearbox.

    So I guess I will say they have a terrible record at original content if you exclude borderlands.

    Yeah, I just tried replaying through the pre sequel, and the stupid fetch quests are so much more annoying in low gravity.

    I mean, stuff that breaks-up into a half-dozen pieces and is a LITTLE annoying to gather all the pieces of in the original game. But it turns into a two hour search in the pre-sequel, because many pieces take a (literal) moon-shot. Of course I can't replay it without giving up in frustration.

    Well Bulletstorm was Epic and People can fly. Gearbox bought the rights and released it.

    Was talking about the remaster- Full Clip Edition and EA and People can Fly still own the license, Gearbox just helped them create the remaster.

    I made that comment tounge-firmly-planted in cheek. I hope I'm not right, or I will call support & find out why it ican't install on my Samsung Galaxy Y.

    If the cell-shading wasn't enough of a hint, I also noticed the exit number "3"! Can't wait!

    As I've said before... I'm not really invested unless there's innovation. These days a shooter is a shooter is a shooter. Adding loot doesn't change anything.

    Wasn't really a remaster just a rerelease, the only thing added was Duke nukem, that I am aware of, the only reason they did it was because the original version had games for Windows live DRM.

    I loved the cel shading, how well it ran and the humor esp weapons on the first one. But didn't play 2 for some reason

    I'll do a hard pass on any mobile game. But if they have a true successor to bl2, then it will be a goty for sure. Game was so funny, and fun to play.

    Only fps games I can stand to play is borderlands and Bioshock.

    After the backlash that Blizzard got from their Diablo mobile game, they would be batshit insane to release a BL mobile game.

    I'm probably steering off topic but interestingly, Borderlands wasn't cel shaded, the textures were all hand drawn to look that way and the end result was a cel shaded look without the washed out colors. Just a fun fact I guess, I love the way Borderlands looked.
