Borderlands 3 expectations might be beyond Gearbox, Randy Pitchford fears Weight of money too much for studio to bear. By Alex Walker on July 11, 2014 at 6:26 am Source I’m not sure how you could be scared about the prospect of making money, but apparently that’s what occurred over at Gearbox Software when the team had a discussion about what another sequel to the Borderlands series would look like. In an interview in the latest Game Informer, Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford says that he’s not sure his team would be able to deliver on expectations for a sequel, only because the game would have to be “so crazy and so big”. “We had that discussion [about the next Borderlands] and there was this weird mixed bag. On one level it’s like, ‘Woah’,” Pitchford said. “If you’re going to do something that’s called Borderlands 3 and it’s going to be done in this next-generation environment, there’s a whole bunch of ideas that come around of what has to happen in order for that to live up to what that needs to be.” The Gearbox chief added that 2K Australia’s efforts with Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel also “changed the nature of the pressure of what Borderlands 3 had to be for us”, but he doesn’t say precisely why or how. Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel is due out on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in October. As for Borderlands 3, Gearbox are stressing that the recent chatter is in no way indicative that a sequel will be in the works. If you can believe that.
