With very little surprise to anyone, it has recently been announced that the next installment of the beloved Borderlands franchise will not be headed to previous-gen consoles. Unlike the strange announcement that Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel was previous-gen only, Borderlands 3 will be all made on the current-gen consoles and according to CEO of Gearbox Studios, Borderlands 3 will be “the big one”.
It is worth noting here that there were no details on what or when Borderlands 3 will be announced or even come out. We believe that it is safe to say that Borderlands 3 is probably just in story development right now and most of their actual development team is working on the recently announced Borderlands The Handsome Collection. For die hard Borderlands fans, we are going to have to wait until March 24th to get our hands on The Handsome Collection, but Telltale’s Tales From The Borderlands is due soon so look forward to that as well.
With many franchises finally making the switch to current-gen systems, we could start to see a dried up market for the 360 and PS3, so if you have been holding out, it may be time.
Let us know what you think of Gearbox’s move here and be sure to stay tuned for more information on Borderlands 3!
