It’s quite a while since the last time that Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford said anything aboutBorderlands 3 on social media. But out of fans’ curiosity, he recently teased what the sequel will be like when it releases at some point in the near future.

Latest development tease

The latest tease regarding the ongoing development of the third installment of the Borderland series came out via Twitter. A fan asked Pitchford about the status of the game and wanted to know if it will be like “Borderlands 1” or more of “Borderlands 2.”

Pitchford first said that he loves “Borderlands 2,” but he also shares a similar point of view with the fan regarding “Borderlands 1.” Then, he said that he thinks that the tone of the third game is closer to the original rather than the second title.

Apparently, there is not much information for the fans to sink their teeth on this most recent tease, however, if such is the case, the threequel will have the qualities of the first game with regard to the dialogue, conversation structure, and humor.

Tiny Tina to return as playable character

Fans have grown impatient with the lack of information about its development and when will they get an official announcement of “Borderlands 3.” Right now, they turn to Pitchford to drop their wish list and to even get the slightest clue on what to expect from the new game.

Another fan was requesting for the return Tiny Tina as a Playable Character and the CEO replied that he is also as curious to see how her character must have grown and changed after several years.

Fans have been speculating that Tiny Tina will be a playable character in the next game.

In fact, longtime fans of the series believe that the shadowed character seen in that techno demo back at GDC 2017 could be her.

This, however, should be taken as a mere speculation at this point and as usual, must be taken with a pinch of salt.

A bump on the road

The development of the next game is already confirmed by the studio, with initial details of the creative people involved with the production.

But last month, the whole team faced a bump on the road when lead writer Mikey Neumann decided to leave his post for health reasons.

It remains vague how his exit will affect production and whether he finished writing the story. There is no update from the game developer on any replacement for Neumann until now.

It can be recalled that 2K’s parent publisher Take-Two confirmed in May that another AAA title will be launched in 2018 other than “Red Dead Redemption 2.”

Two of the possible sequels come to mind of fans - “Bioshock 4” and “Borderlands 3” but based on discussion threads online, fans want to see the latter’s release next year over an all new Bioshock game.
