Randy Pitchford comments on the possibility of Borderlands 3 releasing exclusively on the Epic Games Store

A rumour surfaced yesterday, suggesting that Borderlands 3 could be releasing exclusively on the Epic Games Store. As you may have guessed, a lot of people demanding answers from Gearbox’s CEO Randy Pitchford who has previously made some positive comments about the Epic Games Store.

In a series of tweets, Pitchford did not confirm nor deny the fact that Borderlands 3 will be released exclusively on the Epic Games Store. Instead, he stated that the studio responsible for the game’s distribution is 2K Games, and that gamers should demand answers from them.

Now while 2K Games is the one that will determine the digital platforms for which Borderlands 3 will come out, Pitchford claimed that he is fine with games releasing exclusively on specific platforms (provided they are exclusives for a short period of time like six months). Whether this is a hint about Borderlands 3’s exclusivity remains to be seen.

Last but not least, Pitchford stated that he has a very keen interest in cross-platform play and that Epic has been support cross-platform play for a long time. This could also be a hint about Borderlands 3 supporting cross-platform play between PC and consoles (though this has not been officially confirmed yet).

2K Games and Gearbox will reveal more details about Borderlands 3 on April 3rd, so stay tuned for more!
