Borderlands 3 is finally (nearly) here, but don’t expect the hype to end with the launch of the new title. The game’s creative director, Paul Sage, recently chatted with VG247 about what we can expect from the Vault, and what he’d love to see for the future of the franchise.

“You know, somebody brought up Love, Death & Robots to me,” said Sage. “And I was like, ‘oh hell yeah! That’d be a lot of fun.’ I’d love to see things like that, honestly. We’ll see what the future holds. I mean, hopefully, people love the game. And hopefully, they love all the source material and they want to do that.”

He also went on to add that the franchise’s latest game – which is looking like a wild ride already – could also benefit from having its own theme park.

“A Borderlands theme park… Yes! I’ll take a Borderlands theme park!” said Sage. “I’m trying to think of what would be the most obvious ride that you would have… would it be Claptrap’s Cave? You know, when I was a kid, I used to go to Six Flags all the time, and going into the cave was always so fun. And the log ride. So yeah, I’d totally dig something like that.”

Unfortunately, there’s no theme park or anime series on the horizon for Borderlands 3, but hey, we can dream, right?

Although Borderlands might not be expanding to those sorts of lengths, we can probably expect more new content coming at the very least.

Earlier this year, the series’ main writers, Danny Homan and Sam Winkler spoke with DualShockers about the future of the franchise, and it’s looking really hopeful for Borderlands fans.

According to Winkler, Borderlands 3 is “definitely a successor to all the games” and will “tie off some threads” but don’t expect this to be the final chapter.

Winkler added that thanks to new fragments of story sprinkled throughout the upcoming title, it “definitely isn’t the end of Borderlands in any way.”

Homan added there’s “always room for more story in Borderlands,” and coyly teased that the the new game leaves enough unsolved for future games to pick up.
