Borderlands 3 "will be specifically for next-gen"

The Borderlands Series have been one of favorites. And when I heard about the pre-sequel, I was excited at the thought of playing as some of favorite vault hunters, unfortunately that title was only for last gen systems. But now, with E3 right around the corner, I’ve been hearing more whispers of a “Borderlands 3” for the next gen and the good ladies and gents at 2k/Gearbox are apparently serious about giving us just that.

A little while back, Take-Two president Karl Slatoff was quoted as saying “Looking further ahead, we have robust long-term pipeline of titles in development, including ground-breaking new intellectual properties and new releases from our proven franchises.”

“We can confirm that 2K and Gearbox Software will develop an all new Borderlands game built specifically for the next-gen consoles.”

Hopefully you guys out there are equally stoked as I am about this. The Borderlands series have not disappointed yet and I’m sincerely hoping they can continue that trend with the upcoming incarnation of the series. Granted with a better netcode, more beefy character customization and better rare drop rate.

Here’s to hoping they have something awesome to show at E3!
