No Borderlands 3 at E3 2018, According to Gearbox

No Borderlands 3 at E3 2018, According to Gearbox”

This year's E3 will play host to many games and events, but Borderlands 3 won't be one of them, according to Gearbox Software.

In a series of Tweets, Randy Pitchford discussed human nature and how people will never believe that Borderlands 2 is not coming to E3 2018. "[The performer] once said (paraphrased), 'When I make something vanish (which is a magic trick, and fake), people will swear that it is real". While he appreciates the support and love for Borderlands, the next game is not at E3. "Many of you will find a way to interpret the intent to suit what you want to believe regardless of what is true". Despite numerous websites stating that Borderlands 3 may miss this year's E3 presentation, it is still unknown.

"It feels as if "Borderlands 3" may be destined to be the next Half-Life 3 in that regard", he added. Gearbox Software will have other titles to show off to gamers during the conference next month.

Apparently representatives from the studio made the announcement to journalists (thanks ShackNews), with Gearbox's Randy Pitchford reiterating the statement via twitter.

While we realise we are absolutely doing what Pitchford says we will in his tweets, we can't help but wonder if this is some kind of misdirection or, perhaps, a hint that what we'll see next from the Borderlands universe won't be called Borderlands 3.

Interestingly enough, Pitchford did just that a few weeks ago by tweeting out a link to the Schoolhouse Rock song "3 is a magic number", though this may have just been a tribute to the recent passing of composer Bob Dorough.

Gearbox confirmed Borderlands 3 was in development during PAX East 2016. However, everyone knows that the game is happening, even the developers acknowledge that. The Gearbox CEO emphasized the video was simply a tech demo, not a game, though some art assets shown were promised to be included in "a future video game".
