As far as open world action role playing games are concerned, there are very few games which can scale the heights reached by the Borderlands franchise. When the game first released in 2009, the sales figures were enormous, and the fan enthusiasm was palpable. There have been some other updates on the new game as well. Here, we shall talk about Borderlands 3 latest news.
First of all, we have some terrible news. Mikey Neumann, who had been earlier held as the ‘creative champion’ by none other than Randy Pitchford, who is the CEO of Gearbox Software, which is the developer of the new game has left the company. He is suffering from Multiple Sclerosis and is very ill. Gearbox has gained a lot of followers after the game series was unveiled. In fact, the pair of spin-offs, one being 2K Australia’s Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel! and the other, Telltale’s Tales from the Borderlands, had also gained enough respect from even the most hardened gamers to create a niche of their own.
But first, we focus on Mikey Neumann. Neumann was the main brains behind the original Borderlands franchise and was also behind the very successful entries in the Brothers in Arms franchise. Neumann is now suffering from the complications of Multiple Sclerosis, and it is possible that this is why he has had to leave the game. While we do know that no one has been asked to fill in the void left by Neumann, we do know that Borderlands 2 art director Scott Kester has been asked to join the new team which eventually will come together and make the Borderlands 3 game possible.
The news that Neumann was stepping away was first reported last month by Polygon magazine. What difference will his exit have on the upcoming game? While we do not know for sure, we do know that the differences may be substantial, given that virtually all aspects of the previous games had the stamp of the “champ,” Mikey Neumann.
Borderlands 3 Latest News: What Will It Be Called?
While we are calling it Borderlands 3, we do not know what the game will be titled when it starts shipments. At the PAX South 2015, Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford had confirmed that the studio was hiring new staff and was planning on a sequel. A year later, at the PAX 2016, Pitchford returned and said essentially the same thing and added that the new entry could be named something else. He said that the new game was “the big one.”
In the end, we ask you to share any tips or news that you may have about Borderlands 3 latest news. There is a lot of rumor afloat, so we ask you to take everything with a healthy pinch of salt.
