Gearbox Software has announced plans for E3 2021, and it includes a 30-minute broadcast that could be where the studio’s rumored Wonderlands game is shown off. The Borderlands studio, which also operates a publishing division, announced its plans on Monday.
How To Watch
The Texas-based studio behind the Borderlands series announced that a “segment” of Saturday’s E3 2021 broadcast will be dedicated to Gearbox. During this presentation, Gearbox will share “everything that Gearbox has been busy getting its hands into.” The broadcast begins at 2 PM PT / 5 PM ET on June 12, and you can see more stream times below. Like E3’s other programming, the broadcast will be available on YouTube, Twitch, and other streaming sources, including here at GameSpot.
- 2 PM PT
- 5 PM ET
- 10 PM BST
- 7 AM AEST (Sunday, June 13)
What To Expect
According to a tweet from Gearbox, the event will be hosted by Gearbox boss Randy Pitchford. The executive has recently been spending time in Budapest for the Borderlands movie. One of the biggest rumors about Gearbox is that the studio is developing a Borderlands spin-off based around Tiny Tina and called Wonderlands, but whether or not it’s shown off during the event remains to be seen.
Geoff Keighley’s Summer Game Fest Kick Off showcase on June 10 will contain at least one reveal from Gearbox ahead of the Gearbox presentation itself two days later.
Gearbox is now owned by Embracer Group. As part of the sale, Gearbox has said it may be working on a new IP that could shake things up like Borderlands did years ago. Gearbox is also known for franchises like Brothers in Arms and Duke Nukem, though nothing so far has suggested new entries in those franchises might be revealed at E3.
Outside of its own game development, Gearbox runs a publishing division that puts out games in the Homeworld franchise, among others, so there is no telling what the company might have in store for E3.
