Borderlands Dev's New IP Battleborn Coming to E3 "in a Big Way"

More information about Gearbox's upcoming Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC game will be announced soon.


Gamers eager to learn more about Borderlands creator Gearbox Software's new IP Battleborn, a console and PC shooter that features MOBA elements, don't have much longer to wait. Parent publisher Take-Two Interactive has announced it will share more information about the game in the lead-up to E3, followed by a significant showing at the event itself next month.

"Next month, Battleborn will be at E3 in a big way and we will have more news to share about the title prior to the show," Take-Two president Karl Slatoff said during the company's recent earnings call.

Slatoff also teased that Battleborn will feature an "accelerated character growth system," which will allow players to "fully experience" each of the game's unique heroes in single-player or multiplayer.

Battleborn, which is in development for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC, was announced last summer. It is scheduled to launch during Take-Two's fiscal 2016, meaning it should arrive before April 2016.

Gearbox previously described Battleborn as the "most ambitious" game the studio has ever made. The Texas-based developer is perhaps best known for the Borderlands series, but it also created the Brothers in Arms franchise and has worked on various entries in the Halo, Half-Life, and Duke Nukem series.
