WIll Borderlands 4 be released in 2024?

Borderlands 4, the highly anticipated installment in Gearbox Software's renowned looter-shooter franchise, has been the subject of much speculation and anticipation among gaming enthusiasts.

Legacy and Release History

The Borderlands franchise, known for its innovative looter-shooter gameplay, has left an indelible mark on the gaming landscape, with the series having sold over 77 million copies.

The release history of the Borderlands games shows a pattern of approximately 2-5 years between each main installment, with Borderlands 3 being released in 2019, four years after Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel in 2014.

Speculations and Teasers

Randy Pitchford, the head of Gearbox Software, has teased the existence of "the big one" in May 2021, strongly implying Borderlands 4.

This was further supported by the revelation that developer Nicolas Rudowski dedicated efforts to Borderlands 4 from November 2021 to April 2023, as evidenced by his LinkedIn page. These clues strongly suggest that the game has been in development for at least a couple of years.

Development and Production

Gearbox Software, the studio behind the Borderlands franchise, has been working on multiple games, with one of them being the highly anticipated "BIG ONE" called Borderlands 4.

Since the Embracer merger, Gearbox Entertainment has experienced significant growth, with the studio aiming to release 8 AAA games by 2026. This expansion and the commitment to multiple game releases indicate the studio's capacity and focus on delivering new titles, possibly including Borderlands 4.

Release Date Speculations

Given the historical release pattern of the previous Borderlands games and the development timeline, it is plausible to speculate that Borderlands 4 could be unveiled and released in 2024, similar to the swift reveal-to-launch timeline of Borderlands 3. 

Also, there has been speculation that Borderlands 4 could be released in Q3 of 2024, aligning with the passage of time in the game's storyline and real life, as Gearbox Software prefers to maintain consistency in the passing of time between the two.

Official Statements and Cross-Platform Release

Gearbox Software has officially confirmed that Borderlands 4 will be released on all major platforms, including PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC, and will be cross-platform, as the studio has built its own cross-play infrastructure.

This broad cross-platform release strategy indicates a significant commitment to making the game accessible to a wide audience, further supporting the possibility of a 2024 release.

Movie Adaptation and Cinematic Universe

It is worth noting that in addition to the game, a live-action Borderlands movie is set for release on August 9, 2024. The movie, directed by Eli Roth, features a star-studded cast, including Cate Blanchett, Kevin Hart, Jack Black, and Jamie Lee Curtis, and is intended to be the first of the Borderlands Cinematic Universe, hinting at a broader narrative and thematic expansion.

 

While no official announcement has been made regarding the release date of Borderlands 4, the various clues, development timelines, and official statements suggest a strong possibility of a 2024 release.

The historical release pattern of the franchise, the development efforts dedicated to the game, and the studio's commitment to broad cross-platform release all point towards a potential unveiling and launch of Borderlands 4 in the near future. 

In light of these considerations, it is reasonable for fans and enthusiasts to look forward to the potential release of Borderlands 4 in 2024, and to anticipate the continuation of the beloved franchise's legacy in the gaming realm.
