Axios Gaming has published a story in which it reveals the departure of six key members of Gearbox Software, the studio responsible for Borderlands 3. The reason for this march has not been officially revealed, although they will all come together to develop a new independent video game. According to this medium, the marches were communicated two weeks ago. The source claims that they were working on a project that was in pre-production, so the company has already begun to rebuild the team.

The Gearbox boss reaction
Randy Pitchford, CEO of Gearbox, has informed Axios that the developers have left on good terms. “Before their transition, the group was part of a team [que trabajaba en un proyecto] not announced in pre-production. His goodbye will have minimal effect on our current plans, ”he says. “Our majority attention is currently dedicated to finalizing [Tiny Tina’s] Wonderlands ”, a video game that is already“ in the right direction ”.
Another source has told Axios that the departure of some of the members of the old guard will allow “new blood” to the orphaned project, so there is also enthusiasm among the other team members. On the other hand, Danny Hoffman, writer of Borderlands 3, left Gearbox in May to join Respawn Entertainment, the studio behind Apex Legends and Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.
Borderlands 3 It was released in 2019 and is currently available for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, PC, and Google Stadia. During these years it has received free and paid content, which has expanded the gaming experience.
