Gearbox is moving on from Battleborn to start working full force on a “highly anticipated project”. This project is almost definitely Borderlands 3. It’s a “good news bad news” situation.

Creative director Randy Varnell has announced that Battleborn won’t receive any more content updates after the upcoming Fall update.


“As of this week, there will be no more Battleplans and there is currently no planned content after the Fall Update,” he said. “Details of any future changes or news will be made on our forums or through social media, so keep your radars on.”

Varnell himself is now attached to this new project, which he is very excited about.

“If you’ve been paying attention to recent news from the Gearbox Panel at PAX West, you’ll have heard that many folks at Gearbox are working on a highly anticipated project.

“Although I’m sad my time on Battlebornis coming to a close, I’m happy to announce that I will play a significant role on this highly anticipated but unannounced game, and I’m sure you’ll be hearing some from me again in the future regarding Gearbox games.”

Battleborn was released just more than a year ago, on May 3, 2016. The game will continue to stay operation, but the Fall update will be the last update it’s going to get.

This update includes new skins based on Borderlands characters, new title art, and some minor balance changes.

So, excited about Borderlands 3 (or whatever other project Gearbox is working on)? Sad to see Battleborn on its last legs? Let me know in the comments below.
