Fans have been anticipating for the announcement of "Borderlands 3" release date. As the game franchise celebrates its 7th year anniversary, gamers cannot help but hope that Gearbox Software will make some important revelations.

In "Borderlands" Twitter account, game developers were asking fans to share their memories of the first person shooting game. Some gamers were nostalgic as they recall their experience with the first version of the game, while others say that the game needs to be re-mastered. A handful of followers were hoping the "Borderlands 3" will soon have a release date.

In the previous version, the game ended with the discovery of a new galaxy located in a different solar system. As "Borderlands 3" will most likely be exploring this new map, fans are speculating that the game developers are challenged by the complexity of the whole new idea.

With rumors of the release date to be in October 2018, game developers will have more time to improve "Borderlands 3" multiplayer online arena and first-person shooter titles. Scott Kester and Mikey Neumann, both from the creative department of the original and second installment of "Borderlands" will join the team for "Borderland 3" according to some reports.

It has been more than a year since Randy Pitchford, CEO of Gearbox, said that there is more to be expected from "Borderlands" though they still have to figure out what would that be. Fans hope that by this time, in celebration of the game's 7th anniversary, a launch date could be confirmed.

Gearbox Software could have their hands tied in making "Battleborn," but now that it is released, they might definitely be working on some major development for "Borderlands 3." After all, the previous installment was the best-selling title of 2K and has sold more than 12 million copies. Do you think "Borderlands 3" will be released in October 2018?
