“I’m not going to f**k around with you like Valve does with Half-Life 3.”
Randy Pitchford says Gearbox isn’t yet working on Borderlands 3, but the development team has lofty aims for the game and that the team is constantly thinking about what it should be like.
“We are not working on Borderlands 3,” Pitchford said while talking to Polygon. “That is unqualified. We have more to do in the franchise, but no there isn’t a Borderlands 3.”
“When you think of what Borderlands 3 should be, it should be massive,” Pitchford continued. “It should be bigger and better than Borderlands 2. It should carry forward the story. It’s probably crazy multiplatform, depending on timing. It would have to be a next-gen game and a current-gen game, if it was coming at any time in the reasonably near future.”
Pitchford also took a stab at the Half-Life 3 situation with Valve, saying that Gearbox won’t leave its fans hanging. “I’m not going to f**k around with you like Valve does with Half-Life 3,” he said. “We know we want it and we know it should exist, but we don’t know what it is yet.”
