“Borderlands 3” was again not mentioned by the name, but a new job announcement from the company Gearbox could have something to do with the rolling game shooter. Face will be an author for an AAA FPS / RPG hybrid game.
Even though Gearbox confirmed last year that there will be a new “Borderlands”, and a few weeks ago became known that about 90 percent of the workforce is working on the new game, is not clear because of the lack of announcement whether it is the latest project of the company is “Borderlands 3”. There were several references in the past. And also a new job offer provides a hint.
In this ad, Gearbox is looking for someone who wants to join the author team to “work on an unannounced Triple A FPS / RPG hybrid with strong characters and a central story thread.” And there are other texts that could speak for “Borderlands 3”. For example, “A love for comedy writing with respect for a critical undertone would be helpful.” The requested author is to write among other things the texts for spoken dialogues and mission boxes.
The last game of the series is called “Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel” and appeared in October 2014 for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC. While the announcement of “Borderlands 3”, or whatever the title may be, remains unanswered, it could be stated that the online obligation remains outside. “I like the idea of raids and looting – we’ve pioneered first-person shooters, but I also like an online approach, but we want to be there for offline gamers,” said Gearbox chief Randy Pitchford some days.
