There are currently a number of games in the series available, Borderlands 1, 2, the Pre-Sequel along with a telltale game series and another possible game on the way. On the 2nd of September at PAX West, Gearbox software CEO Randy Pitchford teased that 90% of the studio is working on what they think the fans would want them to be working on. Pitchford did not reveal anything further that would indicate what this project might be and said ‘a product does not exist until its announced’ but many believe it will be the next borderlands game. To add to these rumors Take-Two Interactive, owner of Borderlands publisher 2K Games, said last month that a highly anticipated new title will be released between 1st of April 2018 and 31st of March 2019. The title or nature of the release at this time has not been confirmed but it is speculated this could be the next borderlands installment. All the signs definitely point to a Borderlands 3 and while it may not bear that exact name, Gearbox confirmed at PAX East last year there would obviously be another borderlands game and they would begin work once they were finished with Battleborn which was released last year.
Borderlands is an open world, action role playing, first person shooter set on the planet Pandora. In each game you select a character with unique abilities to play as and become a vault hunter in search of alien treasures. Along with your very loud robot companion Claptrap, you scour the vast landscapes of different planets meeting a variety of characters who set you on missions to kill some enemies. The art style for borderlands is very unique and creates a cartoon or comic like atmosphere for you to explore. No other game looks or feels the same as Borderlands which sets it apart from the pack. It’s crazy and over the top world and story lines compliment the space western and cyber punk theme of the game.
