Following Seeming Borderlands 3 Teaser, Gearbox Hints At Another Game
Do you know this robot?
Gearbox recently teased something that is almost certainly Borderlands 3, and now it has issued a second teaser for another game. This time the studio was less coy, outright stating that it will be showing the new game at PAX.
[Update: Gearbox's PAX East panel has come, and it did provide news on a variety of games, both Borderlands and otherwise. But the biggest announcement was surely that of Borderlands 3, which is officially in development; we got to see the first trailer for it during the livestreamed panel. The studio also announced an updated version of Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition will release next week, while it's also releasing an ultra HD texture pack for The Handsome Collection.
But while the first hint was relatively clear--the number three on a dusty road, suggesting Borderlands 3 news--this one is decidedly less so. It does state that this is "another game," so it's not just another clue for Borderlands, but other than that it's just a stark scene. In it we can see some kind of machine or robot hooked up to wires in a laboratory.

Speculation has ranged from something to do with We Happy Few to a new Duke Nukem to an entirely new IP. Whatever it is, it's likely to be unveiled during Gearbox's panel in panel at PAX East's biggest hall. That panel, to take place on March 28, promises "never-before-seen reveals, exclusives, and surprises." It will also be live streamed for those not attending the Boston, MA event.
[Update: Gearbox has now teased yet another announcement, which is definitely Borderlands-related.]
Gearbox's first teaser was said to be a likely factor in Take-Two stock ticking upwards, which was then bolstered further by an unfounded rumor that Sony was discussing a possible acquisition of the publisher. That report was erroneous, however, and the stock price seems to be increased from where it had been, but stabilizing lower than its peak.
