Borderlands 3 Release Date: What We Know So Far

One of the most anticipated games in recent memory is Borderlands 3, the successor to the games earlier released in the Borderlands franchise. Also, it is essential to note that the Borderlands 3 game is popular for some of the features it offers as well: an open and expansive gaming environment and lots of extra gameplay features which makes it a joy to play. However, there has not been any concrete word on the Borderlands 3 release date and it may or may release at the E3 later this year.

What we do know for certain is the fact that Gearbox Software is certain to be working hard on the new game as the last released ‘main’ game was Borderlands 2 which was released in 2012. At that time, it was released to the masses who are fans of the genre and was a huge success, both critically as well as commercially. Between the years which passed by, there have been some games which have been released, none of which is as grand as the Borderlands 2 game was. These games are Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel!, released by 2K Australia in 2014, and  Tales from the Borderlands, which is a spin-off published by Telltale Games.

Now, we had all heard Gearbox CEO narrate to the gaming world that the company was all set on releasing a direct sequel to the game as soon as possible. He was speaking at a panel discussion at the PAX 2015. Pitchford had also stated that the new game would be ‘massive’ and would change the way people looked at the franchise. Next year at the April 2016 PAX East convention, he said the same thing and was non-committal on what the new game’s name would be, however. He did say that it would be the main game from Gearbox Software after Battleborn.

It is now clear that the game may be one of the best games to have emerged from the stables of the company. Now that we have finally arrived at the fact that the game is happening, and the fact that Pitchford confirmed that Gearbox’s “Creative Champion” Mikey Neumann would helm the script, a look at the release date of Borderlands 3 game is merited. There are now reports, however, which claim that Neumann has left the studio owing to health complications, a development that may delay the game.

The first game was released in 2009, the second followed in 2012. ‘Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel!’ released in 2015 like we said earlier. Also, the last major entry in the franchise was ‘Borderlands: The Handsome Collection’ which released in 2015. Ever since, there has not been much noise about the release date of Borderlands 3. Still, by making educated estimates and good guesses, we can now conclude that the new game will release sometime next year, maybe even early 2018. With rapid advancements in technology, we must allow a little more time to the developers to come up with quality material as well.
