Oh, hurrah - Gearbox seem to be gearing up for yet another Borderlands game. If you haven't become bored of the franchise already, then you might be excited to hear this news. If you are bored of Borderlands, keep reading, this new game might offer something a little different if a new job listing is anything to go by.
Gearbox president, Randy Pitchford took to Twitter to post an image asking for any individuals in the games industry to send their CVs to Randy's personal email. In the image, the words "Next Borderlands Team" were written, alongside lots of silhouetted figures. The phrase "This could be you" were written all over the image, which almost suggests that Randy and the guys at Gearbox are looking for a fairly large amount of new people to join their team.
We've seen a few 'we're hiring' posts by developers in the past that inadvertently lead to us discovering about new upcoming games a little early, but these kind of posts usually offer a handful of positions at most.
If Gearbox are really planning to recruit a whole new team for their next Borderlands game, does that mean they have something extra ambitious planned? Well, that could be completely possible. As well as linking his email address, Randy Pitchford mentioned that "This is the big one." in reference to the next Borderlands game.
That sentence is enough to get me excited - I had honestly become bored of the franchise after completing the second game, but it sounds as if Borderlands 3 might be an entirely new beast that could help re-invent the Borderlands universe. If this is the case then I cannot wait to find out more about the game.
