Sure we’ve had the stop-gap that was the Pre-Sequel, but we haven’t had a proper sequel to Borderlands 2 since 2012, and it goes without saying that we’re ready for it. That delicious mix of number crunching, loot hoarding, and enemy splatting proves difficult to resist, but it looks like Gearbox Software is at last ready to start on Borderlands 3.

Gearbox’s CEO, Randy Pitchford, was at PAX South over the weekend, and during a panel admitted that the studio is recruiting for a sequel that is likely to hit PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

People think we’re already working on a new Borderlands game,” said Pitchford. “The fact is we aren’t working on Borderlands 3, but we want to, and we want to get started soon.

"There's literally nothing to tell, but we're ready to start."

2K Australia’s only just finished up work on Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel late last year, while we know that Gearbox is also busy with squad-based MOBA Battleborn and imminent Homeworld Remastered Collection, so it’s looking like a fully fledged Borderlands 3 could be some way away just yet.

For console gamers looking for a new (ish) fix, Borderlands: The Handsome Collection is arriving on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on March 24th in North America and March 27th in Europe. It packages together remastered versions of Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel.

Has the Borderlands idea run its course? What would you like to see Gearbox do to shake things up for a sequel?

Give me KRIEG 2.0 and I'll be happy! Seriously, B2 characters are so much better than the pre-sequel ones

If they added enemy radar towers that you'll have to conquer in order to reveal the map I'm going to lose my sides.

Knowing Ubi, they'd keep **** employees instead of firing them. So there's no chance of finding people like that in other companies.
