Mikey Neumann has considered the introduction of a new character in the upcoming edition. The character will be Scooter’s son, named as Scooper and will appear with a super high-pitched voice. Neumann said, “I did this whole Scooter thing, then I pitch-shifted it up like seven semitones so it sounds like a chipmunk and it was the funniest thing I’d ever heard.” The main reason for introducing this character is to please Pitchford’s wife, who was devastated by Scooter’s fate in ‘Tales from the Borderlands’. Moreover, Pitchford also warned that Scooter might not make it to the upcoming edition of the Borderlands. The CEO further advised ‘Battleborn’ players to “look deeply” into the game for the content details as the game will come with some references to Borderlands 3. check also : best gifts for wife Borderlands 3 Trailer As the games existence is still questionable, there have been no promos or official trailers from the developers or the producers.
