Randy says all kinds of things like "Should there be a BL3 and what should it" and "What we imagine it should be is so crazy and scary, we're not sure we'd succeed". It's kinda nice that they have such big ambitions, but they sound so scared, I wonder if they'll do it. He also went on to say that their creative priorities comes first over expectations and that needs respect..

I dunno, what's your guy's take on the interview?

Borderlands 2 is such a huge and amazing game. They just have no idea right now how they are going to top it.

Official boards are full of scrubs.
Example, dude who died trying to reenact the opening scene from bl2.

I must be doing something right if I'm even on your mind.

They could easily top BL2 with a next gen Borderlands. Better cell shaded graphics, more loot, more enemies on screen, bigger area, maybe even go full open world. I think Randy is just saying that, they know they have a solid fan base there is no way Gearbox is "scarred" of making BL3.

Sounds like he's expressing the sentiment that the hardest thing to do in this world is to live up to the expectations others have of you- I believe there will be a BL3 but not for another 3-4 years...

I really hope it takes about 3-4 years for bl3 to come out. It needs as much time as it can get, especially with battleborn being developed, which i am also excited for.

But i agree, i think he's just playing everything up. it would not be hard at all to surpass bl2. But he knows a game won't be made for a while, so why not say all those things? Build it up for a little bit.

Not scared, just attention.

BL1 loot (including scaling, elemental system, drops, etc) + dat polished BL2 game play = BL3 aka THE GOAT

This. I hope the loot system is a bit more forgiving. Meaning rares and legendaries actually drop every once in a while. I would also like a vault hunter to have a pet around all the time like a skag or something. And a Torgue shotgun that talks with Mr Torgue's voice would be awesome.
