During its traditional "Inside Gearbox Software" panel at PAX West, Gearbox Software CEO Randy Pitchford had a tease for the audience.
Yes thank you
Hopefully the old 3 vault hunters are playable this time.
With a game like borderlands i feel like it was a missed opportunity to at least add them as dlc
Yup I just don't see how they can keep adding sirens There's only 6 in the entire universe and somehow 4 of them ended up on Pandora Lilith, Angel, Steele and Mya
Thru could pull a dbz and its more sirens out there.... and also bring back Roland. Its video game it doesn't have to make sense lol.
Yeah I don't know why they killed him off...you know they made new characters and put the old characters as NPCs because they wanted to give them development DESPITE the fact many games today give characters development and let us play as them. Hell Gordon Freeman from Half Life and Jack from Bioshock were mute yet they had so much development while we were playing them. Kind of a stupid, lazy move on their part. The way I see it Borderlands 2 gave each old vault hunter a new thing which can be linked to new abilities. Brick used a melee weapon not just his fists, Mordecai got a new Bloodwing (who knows what this one can do), Lilith got more powers and Roland could easily be given a new toy to play with on the battlefield.
I always play siren. Hopefully there's still one in this game. Lilith was a lot more powerful[freaking killing machine] than Mya, but Mya was still very good.
BL 2 had a good story, two main plot devices being Roland s death scene and then Jack's tie to Oracle.
Don't get me started on Roland.
Why don't they tease how many people lost their job due to Battleborn? Some execs should be fired after they made the decision to ignore a massive IP like Borderlands for a crappy MOBA.
. . . yet we are the same ones who would complain when companies don't take risks. they tried something else, it didn't work out. Now they're back to their bread and butter.
The two are not mutually exclusive. We should encourage companies to try new things, but at the same time, if that new thing sucks, we shouldn't pretend it's good just because "they tried something new". Criticizing an attempt at something new =/= "You should stop trying."
bluefox Nobody is pretending Battleborn is good just because its a new IP, but this fool above is saying people should lose their jobs *because* that new IP didn't work out. That's asinine and a childish way to express "criticism," no matter how you look at it. They also didn't ignore Borderlands, as nX suggested. They just didn't shit out another sequel for the hell of it. They're taking the time to handle it properly. I don't even see what the problem is with that.
Taking risks is something else than going for the next best trend and thinking you are able to compete. This decision was simply stupid.
Let's be honest, Battleborn only really tanked because Overwatch happened at almost the exact same time.
What would be the point in that. If the game was better or maybe marketed different, who knows, different outcome. But that's the nature of the business. Did you buy battle born? Do you but every hand to support every developer to try and make they all keep their jobs?
So are we looking at a 2018 reveal with early/late 2019 release? Borderlands in a post microtransaction world, eugh, prepare to pay for those golden keys and exotic weapons.
They've been working on it for quite a while now. I wouldn't be surprised with a 2018 reveal and Fall release.
I want to be able to play as Mr. Torgue.
what about brothers in arms ???
Thank GOD! I need a game like this. Just plain Fun!
good, cant wait :)
Why would anyone with half a brain cell be interested in anything Gearbox or Randy Pithford has to offer
Because the Borderlands series is decent?
Was* The lead writers and staff left. No thanks Randy.
@mwjw696 sooo what you are saying is that there are no other writers in the world that can do a decent job... on a video game... hmmm
Good, about time they work on a IP with huge demand I stead of making reboots and bad new titles
Because Borderlands 1 and 2 were great.
Yes, they are amazing games. I was aiming at Battle born, evolve and the likes.
My bad, that replay was meant for the comment above this one.
Evolve was not by Gearbox.
Great news - just don't let the Aussies anywhere near it!
Awesome can't wait
I must be part of a very select few that couldn't get into this game...Good that they are making another one though... Plenty of fans have been waiting for it!
Please open world this time, ok?
I wouldnt be surprised if Angel became a playable vault hunter!
God i hope they use an updated engine
I have to wonder if Tales from the Borderlands is going to be truly canon and certain events and deaths that happened there are really going to carry over to part 3. They killed off someone pretty "important" in Borderlands lore there, and I wonder if they'll stick with that. Of course, they could easily retcon all of it because it's Borderlands and silly and Tales sometimes got a little serious and emotional with their storyline. Perish the thought, right, Gearbox?
So that could mean 10% of them are in a new IP or something ?
I feel more uneasiness towards bl3 then excitement, like having a bad feeling about something happening to something you really care about being completely ruined Like Online Only and MT's/loot crates, almost being guaranteed to be in it, just bc of how the gaming industry operates in today's market
Gearbox allocates the majority of their resources to the Borderlands franchise. ... this is a surprise to someone?
That's amazing is hands-down on my favorite franchises I just lose myself in those games for hours at a time I hope it's closer to Borderlands 2 than that pre sequel game
unless they changed the loot system to be more like diablo 3, then i'm not interested. having the spam the "pick up" button to get loot that you SHOULD be getting a fair share of anyways is bs, imo. idk who's idea it was to have the loot the way it ws in the past games, but they should have gotten their asses fired lol the game's also not even set up or balanced for pvp either, so the stupid dueling for loot is pointless.
