Borderlands 3 is the 4th main and 5th overall entry in the Borderlands game series, currently under development.

There is minimal official information concerning the status and/or planned content for Borderlands 3. Gearbox has, however, hinted (at the PAX South 2015 convention) that the game is in development and has been since sometime in 2015, with the company hiring for developers.

At the 2017 GDC, Gearbox Software showed off the first footage of Borderlands 3 in the form of an Unreal Engine 4 tech demo. The game will sport higher definition visuals than all previous entries, due to being the first game natively tailored for eighth generation consoles. New additions include greater dynamic lighting, capable of passing and diluting through fabric, as well as real-time shadows that can also interact with fabric in a similar way. Also added is a revamped outline engine that is capable of fitting smaller outlines around inner details of the game's 3D models, as opposed to the previous games, which only placed outlines on the outer edges of the game's geometry. Lastly, the tech demo also had a confirmed female character who may play a large part in the game, either as a Vault Hunter or as an important NPC. Her face is never shown as she is only seen in silhouette form and from the side, where a large pauldron obscures her face. The developers referred to the character with female pronouns during the presentation and were adamant about keeping her face obscured. No further footage of the game was shown.

At PAX East, 2019, an official teaser trailer for the game, titled "Mask of Mayhem" was released. The trailer features an animated 3D collage of various characters, both new and familiar, made to look like porcelain. The end of the trailer zooms out to reveal the collage is in the shape of a Psycho's mask. What follows is the tagline, "Mayhem is coming." with the borderlands website address underneath.

The day after, during Gearbox's presentation, a full reveal trailer for Borderlands 3 was showcased. It showed off new characters, including the new Vault Hunters, returning characters, villainous duo, several new enemies and several new weapon designs.

Borderlands 3 will release on September 13th 2019 on Xbox One, Playstation 4 and on the Epic Games Store for PC and on Steam in April 2020.
