Borderlands: Game of the Year Has Been Rated for PC, PS4 and Xbox One

If you're a fan of Borderlands, you may well be aware that one game in the series never never made it to PS4 and Xbox One. While 2015's The Handsome Jack Collection brought Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel to modern consoles, there has never been a new release of the first Borderlands for modern consoles. It's playable on Xbox One thanks to backwards compatibility, but there's never been an official PS4 or Xbox One release.

However, mounting evidence suggests not only is a port of Borderlands coming, but it'll likely be officially revealed later this week.

Back in May 2018, a Korean Ratings Board featured a listing for Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. While nothing much else surfaced about that at the time, and the Korean rating listing was later taken down, we have now seen the same game name, on the same platforms, rated by the ESRB.

Ratings board listings are usually a very strong indicator that a game exists and is close to release. Additionally, Gearbox has been teasing lots of Borderlands announcements for its PAX East keynote later this week, including what fans suspect will be Borderlands 3, and a Borderlands 2 port to Switch. It seems increasingly likely that we will also see Borderlands coming to PS4, Xbox One, and PC with hopefully some updated visuals, and one would guess all the DLC bundled in. We are expecting a reveal on Thursday of this week.
