2K And Gearbox Are Teasing A Battleborn Announcement For This Thursday

by Mike Futter on Jun 01, 2015 at 10:05 AM

Over the past few weeks, 2K and Gearbox have been dropping cryptic images in the Battleborn Twitter feed. Until today, there wasn't an end in sight or a reason to think much about them. The image shared today changes that.

While most of the images have numerical signifiers to indicate the next image drop, today's piece of the puzzle includes a specific date: June 4, 2015. Based on the work of Battleborn forum members, we see that only one piece remains.

It could simply be a trailer or gameplay footage in advance of E3. It's possible though that Gearbox is getting ready to commit to a release date. All we know for sure right now is that Take-Two expects the game in the current fiscal year (ending March 31, 2016). 

Could Gearbox be further along in development than we know? Or is this just the beginning of a full-on media blitz since 2K has been quiet on the game for so long.

We expect to know more on June 4. For now, you can get caught up with our coverage hub from the August 2014 issue.

Our Take
Even though there's been relatively little of Battleborn shown so far, it cleraly has an enthusiastic community behind it. They've been on top of this tease since the first panel dropped on May 11. I've liked what I've seen of Battleborn so far, and I hope this tease yields something interesting.
