Looks like Gearbox are teasing Borderlands 3

Borderlands PAX East 2019 tease

Gearbox Software are teasing something for their PAX East 2019 panel in Boston later this month, and all of the very large signs are pointing to a new Borderlands.

It all began with this. The cel-shaded style, desert, and bold graffiti  are all highly reminiscent of the beloved shooter-looter franchise.

Here we have something a little more cryptic with a robot on an operating table. Perhaps the bigger Borderlands lore fans could squeeze out some clues, here.

Their most recent tweet, however, more or less confirms we’re getting a new Borderlands game.

But is it Borderlands 3?

After Battleborn dived, crashed and burned, gamers turned to the studio with renewed hope for a fourth Borderlands game. After all, that cliff-hanger in Borderlands 2 set-up some fascinating Vault possibilities, and the Pre-Sequel — as entertaining as the “space Australians” were — didn’t quite manage to fill fan appetites.

So either this is Borderlands 3 or Gearbox are prepared to deal with a tsunami of disappointment.

PAX East 2019 takes place on March 28.
