Did the Release Date for Borderlands 3 Just Get Leaked?

Borderlands 3 had weeks of build-up for a PAX East announcement that put a proverbial ring on it, officially announcing the anticipated loot-shooter. This comes in the immediate aftermath of another deleted tweet from the official account suggesting that Borderlands 3 will be out in September.

All things acknowledged, we will simply have to wait and see what the official word is from Gearbox Software regarding the finalized release date for Borderlands 3. The tweet, which prompted fans to pre-order the game, said "Mayhem is Coming September 13". Another tweet made a second mention of a Gold Weapons Skins pack, and yet another contained a video ad that showed the Epic Store logo. So if the September date is real, they're not that far off.

Courtesy of Twitter user Wario64, it also appears that Borderlands 3 will be released on the Epic Games Store.

Google Maps brings snake back for April Fools
Cairo, San Francisco, London and Tokyo are all options in the app, or the user can choose to play all over the entire world. In Google Maps, press the menu button in the top left of the screen, then scroll down to " Play Snake " in the menu.

"Don't believe anything until April 3rd boys", said one response to the tweet when it was still live.

While it's tempting to think that someone at Gearbox screwed up and let the release date for Borderlands 3 slip, it's also worth remembering that the company is no stranger to joking around and even sometimes trolling its fans. Given we've been waiting for years and years, it does seem like a smart move to get in before other major releases.

A 2K spokesperson tells us "We have nothing to announce at this time, but will have more to share about Borderlands 3 on April 3".
