Will Ice-T be in the newly announced Borderlands 3? I don't know -- honestly, the possibility never crossed my mind until the 61-year-old rapper, actor, author, and record executive tweeted out there's apparently a rumor he's going to be in the upcoming zany post-apocalyptic looter-shooter. What's weird about this though is that there was no rumor about Ice-T being Borderlands 3, at least none that I saw, and I spend most of my life combing through the rumor mill. There wasn't a rumor that Ice-T was going to be in Borderlands 3 until Ice-T said there was a rumor he was going to be in Borderlands 3. In other words, this seems like a tease that he's in the game.
More interesting is the fact that not long after Ice-T manifested a rumor by saying there was a rumor, the official Gearbox feed retweeted the tweet in question, while the official Borderlands account responded.
Gamer Stuff: There’s a rumor that I’m doing a voice in Borderlands 3..... 💥💥💥 https://t.co/wBA20gS1Kw— ICE T (@FINALLEVEL) March 28, 2019
Who would start a rumor like that?— Borderlands 3 (@Borderlands) March 28, 2019
Borderlands 3 showed off and revealed many characters in yesterday's trailer, but none of them gave off that Ice-T vibe to me. Further, I don't think you simply sneak in an Ice-T character into a trailer and not tell anybody. That seems press release worthy.
Whatever the case, at the moment, all we can do is speculate, but all signs point to Ice-T having some type of role in the highly-anticipated game. As you may know, not only is Ice-T a self-pronounced big gamer, but he has done a little voice over work in the past for series like Grand Theft Auto and Gears of War. Further, it's well-documented that Ice-T is a big looter-shooter fan, so the idea he'd be game to voice a character in one wouldn't be very surprising.
Borderlands 3 currently doesn't have a release date, nor have its specific platforms been revealed, but this may all change next month when Gearbox promises to unveil and detail more about the game.
