The long-anticipated third Borderlands game is coming, Gearbox said today, following months worth of hints and teases. No platforms or release date yet, although publisher 2K Games has suggested that it will be out within this coming fiscal year (which ends next April).
This is the fourth entry in the critically and commercially successful loot -shooting Borderlands series, after the first two games and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel which came out in 2014. It looks a lot like the other games:
This newsboxes Gearbox, an independent studio in Frisco, Texas, has seen two high-profile failures this decade. In 2013, it released Aliens: Colonial Marines a poor game that became infamous for a misleading pre-release demo full of flashy, fake graphics.

Now, the company will have to win back jilted fans with a brand new entry in its most successful series to date.
Gearbox says there's no more revealed next week, on April 3.
