PAX East - Gearbox Software announces the long-awaited sequel, Borderlands 3, but accompanied by publishing announcements, card games, magic tricks, and all the technical difficulties one could ask for.

What does Borderlands' apparent commitment to NOT becoming Destiny/Division/Anthem mean for Gearbox and 2k?

How and why was the announcement, in part, a "train wreck"?

And why do I think that "train wreck" is exactly what the industry could use a bit more of?
