Gearbox founder hints at studio potentially ‘working on’ Borderlands 4

Gearbox is up to something, but it remains a secret.

In a recent interview, Gearbox Software founder Randy Pitchford may have confirmed the studio is working on Borderlands 4. The last game in the franchise came out in 2019 and was first announced during PAX East—the latest edition of which is coming up on March 21.

Speaking to IGN, Pitchford primarily focused on the upcoming live-action Borderlands adaptation, starring Cate Blanchett and Kevin Hart, but also remarked on what Gearbox Software has been up to since Borderlands 3. He wasn’t exactly specific, but confirmed that the studio is “clearly working on something.” Pitchford also shared his excitement for the secret project. “I know what we’re working on, and holy shit,” he gushed. “It’s the greatest thing we’ve ever done.” The executive shared that it’s not yet time to announce whatever is in the works officially, but that he couldn’t wait to do so.

Recently, the official Borderlands account on X (formerly Twitter) has been posting recaps of previous entries in the franchise. So far, only the first two games have been covered and this has led many fans, myself included, to believe some big announcement regarding the series is coming soon. That might be the recently revealed live-action Borderlands movie trailer, but I remain hopeful it’s actually Borderlands 4.

All of the above leadup may indicate a potential Borderlands event at this year’s PAX East. But hho knows? it might just turn out to be new IP from Gearbox Software, which would be mighty refreshing, but nonetheless a missed opportunity considering all the hype around Borderlands at the moment. I guess we’ll know in a month’s time when PAX East takes place, and in the meantime, we’ve got Elden Ring‘s DLC to be excited about.
