Whenever gamers think of the one game franchise which deserves an extension on life, odds are that the Borderlands franchise will be one of them. With no Borderlands 3 latest news in circulation right now, it seems as if Gearbox Software is working hard on the development right now, with leaks few and far between. Also, we find it a matter of concern that the game’s main creative force, Mikey Neumann, had left the game citing ill health.
Borderlands 3 Latest News: Mikey Neumann Leaves
Instead, Neumann is said to be planning on taking care of his health right now while working on his own Youtube channel, Movies With Mikey. Earlier, Randy Pitchford, who is the CEO of the game’s developers Gearbox Software, had lauded Neumann’s work and had called him the “creative champion” of the company. With him gone, it seems that his absence may be felt as well in the long run as well as the short term. Indeed, we believe that the Borderlands 3 release date itself may be delayed.
Neumann received great acclaim as the writer of such creative and lauded work as Brothers in Arms and then Borderlands. Without his skills at the helm of affairs, it is left to the powers that be at Gearbox Software to find a superior replacement to take charge of the game’s future once again. Also, it is essential to remember that the gaming segment, especially such games as Borderlands, which is one of the best and most renowned open world, action role-playing first-person shooter games, has many rivals. Many fans still swear by the open world environment of this gaming franchise, as it provides the players to explore a world alien to us.
Originally released for such platforms like the PlayStation 3, the Xbox 360, operating systems as Microsoft Windows, and the Mac OS X, the first game had also released for the Shield Android TV. The new game must cater to yet more platforms as well as upgrades to the consoles like the upcoming Playstation 5. This is a most daunting task even for the most seasoned game developer.
Gearbox too was placing great emphasis on the Borderlands 3 release date and even CEO Randy Pitchford has been seen in a special suit posing for motion capture that can be used later in the game. Borderlands 2 art director Scott Kester too had been retained. Now that Neumann has publicly stated that his terminal illness, Multiple Sclerosis, is hampering with his work, it remains to be seen how long the game’s earnest supporters are prepared to wait before they migrate to comparable products.
In conclusion, we must state that no discussion about Borderlands 3 latest news would be complete if we did not mention that the planet Promethea may end up being the scene of the new game. There was graffiti found as an Easter egg in Battleborn‘s Attikus and the Thrall Rebellion DLC which certainly suggests so. Let us know what you would feel if the release date was indeed delayed.
