Gearbox teases another game reveal at PAX East

Gearbox has teased a second game reveal for PAX East, one that looks unlike any of its other established franchises.


Gearbox is looking to have a busy PAX East this year. On Tuesday, the developer appeared to have teased the next chapter of its Borderlands franchise. Honestly, if they had stopped there, the gaming world likely would have been content. However, it looks they're going to bring more than Borderlands to Boston.

On Wednesday, Gearbox posted another teaser to its Twitter. Here, Gearbox made clear that this was "another game" being hinted for PAX East, so it looks like this will be revealed in addition to whatever reveal is being teased for the Borderlands franchise.

Just based on this image alone, it's hard to tell what Gearbox is getting at. This doesn't appear to be related to the Borderlands franchise in anyway. Nor does it look like it's related to any of the other Gearbox games of the past. It certainly doesn't look like Battleborn. Therefore, it's safe to assume that this is potentially a new IP entirely. Regardless, it's safe to expect an announcement and little more than that, given that E3 2019 is right around the corner. Gearbox may want to save something for the big June trade show down the road, as well as Gamescom in August.

It's tough to add anything else to this, in terms of speculation. While it was fairly easy to link yesterday's tweet to the Borderlands account, this one isn't quite so straightforward. But if Shacknews is going to make any kind of educated guess, we'll point to Project 1v1, which Gearbox has been curiously quiet about since E3 2018. Given that game's futuristic aesthetic, that at least seems plausible.

Feel free to join the conversation and offer your best guesses in the comments. We'll continue to follow Gearbox on Twitter for any further developments. PAX East is set to take place in Boston, MA and run from March 28-31.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

      Well of course they are; they needed another games budget to syphon off of to fund borderlands 3.

        Project 1v1 is not trash.

        Naw, Gearbox is ok. You're focusing on the negative.

        You left Borderlands 2 off of your list. That game was awesome.

        Battleborn had the case of the worst possible timing ever where it ended up competing and losing badly to Overwatch. It had some strong ideas in it, but it just didn't have the chance.

      It would be a blessing to be able to play Borderlands 3.

      It's the coolest animated game!

      It'll be an epic return of one of the greatest looter shooters of all time.

      I have a feeling that Gearbox will jump onto the Battle Royale hype with this one.

      Thanks for the third game!
