PAX East From Boston, MA

Alliance Event: Yes
In 2004, the folks at Penny Arcade decided they wanted a show exclusively for gaming. Since then, the show hasn't looked back. Doubling in size each year until venue capacities were reached, in 2010 the show expanded into Boston for PAX East, drawing tens of thousands of attendees in the inaugural year. The shows in Seattle and Boston represent the two largest gaming events in North America!

Will we get an announcement for Borderlands 3? Stay tuned.


Gearbox Software and Gearbox Publishing are offering behind-the-scenes insight into their works at PAX East 2019 and one particular selling point for their panel may be the potential Borderlands 3 announcement they hinted at. Kind of.

Looter shooter fans everywhere are itching for more Borderlands instalments as the last mainline entry, Borderlands the Pre Sequel was released over four years ago, on 14 October 2014. Vault Hunters have been deprived of cel shaded action for years now, but their wait may be coming to an end.

In the few lines they had to promote their panel at PAX East, Gearbox stated that attendants will get a behind-the-scenes look at the workings of Gearbox Software and Gearbox Publishing "along with the latest news and updates". While that could be a bit of a stretch to go on, they did add that "never-before-seen reveals" will be there during the show.

Considering this almost spells out a new game announcement, it is highly likely this game will be Borderlands 3. Gearbox didn't shy away from openly stating there would be another Borderlands game, back in 2016, although they didn't specifically name it Borderlands 3.

Fans were recently getting restless, firing up the questions about the next Borderlands and at some point Gearbox (maybe?) jokingly stated they didn't know how to get proper art of a Psycho with three hands mimicking guns pointed at his head, as the original Borderlands had the Psycho pointing one "gun" and Borderlands 2 art had the psycho imitating two of them.

Stay tuned for the actual announcement coming at PAX East 2019.
A new Borderlands game has been revealed! Is this Borderlands 3?

The teaser-trailer does seem to drop the first real clues for what could be Borderlands 3. It shows off several characters who could be new Vault Hunter designs or villains, for one thing. The opening scene of Psychos appearing to worship a gun-wielding character, standing next to an angelic figure holding an upside-down Vault symbol, could suggest a direction for the story. We've known for quite a while that a new Borderlands has been in development, so the time seems right to finally reveal it. We'll know for sure soon enough, so come back and watch it with us.
