Gearbox is ready to begin working on the next Borderlands game, the company announced during its final panel at PAX South today.

"We are recruiting for next Borderlands. This is the big one. Industry badass? E-mail me:," Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford said on Twitter. "We want to hear from passionate and talented people to help us with next Borderlands game. Check our website!"

The jobs page on Gearbox's website has a bunch of new openings, including one for a writer who will oversee and direct the development of story and plot for a AAA title.

Pitchford didn't say whether this next Borderlands game is Borderlands 3, but given the fact that he called it the "big one," it seems likely.

Yesterday, Gearbox announced that Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel is getting campaign DLC that will take you into the mind of Claptrap, and that it's adding Lady Hammerlock as a playable character this week, Tuesday, January 27.
