Rumors have been circulating in the community this week stating that Gearbox Software was currently co-developing a new possible spinoff Borderlands title.
Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford had this to say on Twitter, "I am told of rumors that Gearbox is "assisting" or "co-developing" another Borderlands game (or a new spin-off game). These rumors are NOT accurate. Gearbox is lead dev of any future games in the Borderlands franchise (or any Borderlands adjacent games) with no co-development."

He followed up by saying that the team is "definitely working on some amazing stuff", and proceeded to link the Gearbox careers page, asking people to apply and "get in on some Borderlands action" as they are working on "the big one".
Gearbox Software will be attending E3 which takes place next week, so fans may be seeing a small glimpse at what the future holds for Borderlands.
Borderlands 3 was released in late 2019 and we have seen frequent updates to the game and even a director's cut added just last month, which brought with it new missions and a bunch of behind-the-scenes content.
Randy did acknowledge the rumors of a possible spin-off game reportedly in the works and there is definitely a new game coming, so with all the recent updates to Borderlands 3, could we expect the lifespan to last a few more years while we get a spin-off Borderlands title in the meantime?
