Last week Gearbox finally – finally – showed the world a first glimpse at the next addition to the Borderlands franchise – Borderlands 3.
The game had been teased for a while, with very overt references not very well hidden in tweets, and more subtle clues dropped in morse code of all things.
Gearbox’s devotion to teasing has been made very, very clear, and it’s caused fans of the series to go through the reveal trailer with a fine-toothed comb.
One Borderlands fan in particular has stumbled upon something that could very well be a potential release date for the game – at least, that’s what people are hoping.
Redditor Zottelpanda posted what could be a very interesting insight on Reddit, saying: “okey listen guys.
“The release date is hidden in the [Borderlands] trailer. on the timemark 1:39 you can see a big white building in the background. On 1:52 you see that there’s a 10 on this building.
“Now on 1:41 you can see a 01 on one of the skyscrappers [sic]. both are the same font.
“So on the timemark 1:39 you see the Building with the 10 and on 1:41 you can see the 01 on the skyscrapper [sic]. there is nothing in between those two scenes. :D”
So, those numbers give us two potential dates – if they are dates – January 10 and October 1st.
Most fans on the thread are leaning towards an October release date, not only because this would be the American date-reading of the two numbers, but also because October would be a very important date in the Borderlands timeline…
As one user pointed out: “October would he a nice release date as borderlands 1 turns 10 in October so it could happen.”
What do you think? Is this another cryptic clue from Gearbox, or just some random numbers in the trailer?
