Ready for a big rumor but something obvious? Apparently, Gearbox Software’s Borderlands 3 is coming out next year. While Gearbox working on a third installment of the famous franchise isn’t anything surprising, the alleged fact that it’s coming out next year is.
This was “reported” on by YouTuber The Triple S League, who states two independent sources. He states that both sources say the same thing, though these two do not know each other, Allegedly, localization for Borderlands 3 has already begun, which means that it’s quite far off in development given localization of games are usually done at the tail end of its development.
Of course, this rumor should be treated with a big bag of salt and then some. I honestly have not heard of The Triple S League before this, and they don’t seem to have any track record to base if they’re good with these things or not. Nonetheless, a rumor is a rumor, right?
Again, it’s no secret that Gearbox is working on Borderlands 3, and there’s even a mention that 90 percent of the studio’s workforce is working on the loot shooter. Also, as part of 2K’s earnings call earlier this year, the publisher teased that a “highly-anticipated” title is set for release during the fiscal year of 2020, which is business talk to mean sometime between April 2019 to March 2020.
We’ve reached out to 2K and will update the post if and when we get a response.
