It looks like we will have some Elon Musk when the next Borderlands game arrives. No, we won’t see the CEO in the game and he won’t play any role in developing the game but we might see a sentient flamethrower with text written by Elon Musk.
It was revealed by Musk that he was approached by Pitchford after he tweeted about a sentient flamethrower and cryptocurrency and safe words. He was asked if the text could be used for the Borderland game and Musk agreed to it.
In case you missed it, the flamethrower in reference here is the $500 flamethrower that you can actually buy right now. Of course, Borderlands 3 was never announced although Pitchford did say that a new Borderlands game is in the work so there are not much details yet. This might end up being just a joke as well so take it all with a pinch of salt.
