Gearbox Has FINALLY Confirmed Borderlands 3 Release

It’s been a long, hard slog for Gearbox and Borderlands fans who’ve been eagerly awaiting the next Borderlands game for literally years.

The company behind one of the most beloved franchises of all time has been teasing the release of a new game heavily hinted to be Borderlands 3. Like, really heavily hinted.

Gearbox clearly loved stringing us all along, and continued to do so until the last few minutes of its time on the PAX main stage.

Well, the waiting paid off because Borderlands 3 is officially official, and we couldn’t be more excited!

Taking the stage at PAX, Gearbox showed off the following trailer and – yes, it’s everything we ever wanted and was TOTALLY worth the wait (and the myriad of technical difficulties).

Check it out for yourself below.

Let’s face it, Gearbox hasn’t exactly been subtle about this release. Still, the actual confirmation is nonetheless VERY exciting, especially for long-standing fans of the franchise.

Unfortunately, the game reveal comes as no surprise. The rumours started with the occasional eye emoji and suspicious turn-of-phrases. Then came the announcement that Gearbox would be taking the stage at PAX East.

Next came the following tweet, which shows off a distinctly Borderlands-style road sign with the date “March 28,” the date that PAX East kicks off – and today’s date.

Adding fuel to the fire, the image also includes “Boston,” where PAX is currently underway, and “Exit 3,” potentially suggesting…y’know…Borderlands THREE.

We then got a teaser trailer, which looks very Borderlands-y without outright saying it was 3. If you missed it yesterday, check it out below.

How excited are you for Borderlands 3 and what do you think of the reveal? Should Gearbox have teased us for this long, or has it ruined the announcement?
