The new Borderlands game is being developed exclusively for the eighth generation consoles, according to Gamespot.

The title was announced at PAX South in January. Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford stated via Twitter that the company would make a big announcement at the show.

There is no confirmation if this game is Borderlands 3. But, Pitchford has given it a lot of hype early in its development.

In February of 2014, Polygon reported, "Borderlands 3 isn't being made."

"We love Borderlands," Pitchford told Polygon, "and we know customers do too. So we will be doing more in Borderlands. But the thing that, when you think of what Borderlands 3 should be... No. We are not developing that right now.

We don't know what that is yet. We can imagine what it must achieve, but we don't know what it is yet. I'm not going to fuck around with you like Valve does with Half-Life 3.


We know we want it and we know it should exist, but we don't know what it is yet.

But we are doing things in Borderlands that we'll announce soon, that are good, and that I think people will be really excited about if you love the franchise."

Whether or not this next title will be the true numbered sequel, Borderlands is about to leap onto the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. For more about the series, visit its official website here.
