If you watched the dreadful Gearbox PAX stream the other day, where Borderlands 3 was officially announced, then you'll know that the developer just loves hiding secret messages in trailers for its games. With that in mind, Reddit user Zottelpanda reckons that the release date for Borderlands 3 is hidden in its reveal trailer.
Buildings with bold numbers painted on them are dotted throughout said trailer. Put them together, and supposedly, you get a date that reads 10/01. It's assumed that this is the 1st October 2019, since Gearbox would use the American date format where the month comes before the day. And yes, the 1st October is a Tuesday this year, so it seems to add up.
Okay, so it is a little shaky, but we can certainly see the logic. It's also worth noting that Gearbox has a history of releasing games in October. Both the original Borderlands and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel launched in October, in 2009 and 2014, respectively.
What do you make of this? Are you a believer? Dream about guns in the comments section below.
Update: This rumour may have just been debunked, if a now-deleted tweet from the official Borderlands 3 Twitter account is to be believed. Said tweet supposedly leaked the actual release date, which you can read about through here.
I believe this.
I was expecting a summer 2019 release. October will do just fine though.
I'd be happy with October. With the remaster coming out in 2 days, plus Rage 2 and other soon-to-be releases, it gives me enough time to catch up on these and other games.
It could also be October 2101... Hopefully I'm wrong.
October seems like a likely release period. It's in Q4 of the year, where a lot of heavy hitter releases tend to target for the holiday season and whatnot.
Yeah this makes sense.
I wouldn't be surprised by this. It fits, but whether its someone looking to find and interpret it the way they wanted or not, time will tell. Its not outside the realms of feasibility which makes it more of a reasonable interpretation but until its official, I don't care what someone may think they have found...
More than happy if it does come along in October
October is good for me! Hopefully accurate.
I’ll definitely be taking a couple of days off work for this (yes, older people can be nerds too)
oh yeah I believe that.ita definitely coming this year.word up son
Hope it doesn't release roughly the same time as Iceborne.
Go to gearbox fan page on Facebook, gearbox says it’s dropping April 3rd
Expected a September or October release. I think 2 came out in September. Perfect slot for a game like this, hope we get confirmation on Wednesday!
Updated the article.
@Anthonysev42 That's the Remaster of the first game not Borderlands 3.
