Gearbox CEO Confirms New Borderlands Game, Could Have Sentient Flamethrower

A talking flamethrower, that make sense

Borderlands 3 hasn't been officially confirmed but another game is in development according to CEO Randy Pitchford. We also know the game will include a sentient flamethrower.

Elon Musk, the founder of SpaceX, Tesla Inc, and The Boring Company, is selling a $500 flamethrower through his website. In a tweet promoting the flamethrower, Musk joked that it is sentient and “comes with a free blockchain.” Borderlands 3 developer Randy Pitchford took an interest in the weapon and asked Musk’s permission to include the flamethrower in the game, along with “flavor text” for the weapon pulled from Musk’s own Tweets.

Pitchford asking Musk for permission means that the flamethrower is the first confirmed weapon in the game. It can be viewed as a joke but the Borderlands franchise is known for having bizarre weapons, a Sentient Flamethrower fits the game's atmosphere.

A new Borderlands game is in development.
