Borderlands 3 is not currently in development at Gearbox, according to studio boss Randy Pitchford.
Pitchford's comments were made in response to those of Anthony Burch, lead writer on the Borderlands franchise, who recently said that Gearbox has started thinking about a third entry in the series.
"Clean and Simple truth: The only Borderlands related game development work going on right now is for Borderlands 2," Pitchford reiterated.
"Anthony was speaking to his thoughts. We're all thinking about it and it's exciting to think. But there's no project - no actual effort."
In CVG's 8.5 Borderlands 2 review we said the game "is saved from XP strip-mining by a sharp sense of humour and a slick, destructive multiplayer".
