In a mysterious tweet from Gearbox, a sign reading “March 28” and “Boston, MA” can be seen, though no additional information has been provided. When it comes to the date and location themselves, they coincide with this year’s PAX East convention, hinting that Gearbox may have a special announcement planned for the event.
As for what exactly that announcement will entail, many are speculating that Gearbox plans to officially unveil Borderlands 3.
Gearbox Hypes Up PAX East 2019 Announcement
PAX East is scheduled to kick off on March 28 and will be held in Boston, Massachusetts as usual. During PAX East, it’s not unusual for developers to unveil new projects, so the concept of Gearbox teasing Borderlands 3 isn’t outside the realm of possibility. Of course, Gearbox could have an entirely different project planned, though the image in the tweet itself does boast a sort of “Borderlands vibe.”
What’s more, the official Borderlands account on Twitter liked the post from Gearbox. While this could simply be a supportive gesture, we feel it serves as additional proof that the announcement from Gearbox will indeed be the next Borderlands installment. It’s been around 7 years since the release of Borderlands 2 back in 2012, and 5 years following the release of Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel in 2014.
With so much time having passed between Borderlands installments, the confirmation of a brand new title is undoubtedly an exciting prospect. As of right now, Gearbox has plans to host a panel at PAX East, coincidentally scheduled for March 28. The panel will begin at 2 p.m. (EST) and will run until 3 p.m. (EST). The panel description notes that:
“This is your opportunity to get a behind-the-scenes look at Gearbox Software and Gearbox Publishing, along with the latest news and updates from the makers of Borderlands, Battleborn, Brothers in Arms, and more! We will have never-before-seen reveals, exclusives, and surprises, so don’t miss out!”
