Everyone and their mother is expecting a Borderlands 3 announcement during PAX East. That was after Gearbox set the Internet ablaze with a teaser image all but confirming this. And it seems they’re not quite done teasing us yet.
The following tweet by the studio features a somewhat blurred image. Fans will recognize Maya overlooking the shrine in Bloodshot Ramparts. That can only mean one thing – Borderlands 2.

But why would Gearbox be teasing this? The only logical conclusion is a Switch port for the 2012 shooter. It would also make for a good side reveal along with the third mainline title.
Keep in mind that this generation of consoles got a remaster of Borderlands 2 already as part of The Handsome Collection. This released before the Switch’s launch, though. Is this tease only for the second game? Or could we be getting the complete collection?
Either way, it’s exciting news for Switch owners. This port would be one step closer to Borderlands 3 possibly coming to Switch also. Only time will tell as you inch closer to PAX East on March 28th.
