Borderlands 3 Crossplay Being Looked Into ‘Closely’ By Gearbox, 2K Games
With a lot of the big upcoming video game releases still without release dates, the newly announced Borderlands 3 currently stands as one of the most anticipated, if not the grandest, game release confirmed for 2019. Borderlands 3, while still promising the same colorful and manic energy from the previous core entries in the series, is expected to bring significant changes to the system, such as a new loot system in the game. With crossplay on the mind of so many gamers, 2k Games has chosen to speak on whether Borderlands 3 crossplay could be one such new feature for the series.
The discussion of Borderlands 3 crossplay as a possibility started when a since deleted Microsoft Store listing for Borderlands 3 described the game as having crossplay capabilities. After the listing was removed, GameSpot decided to reach out to 2K Games, asking them to comment on the matter. A 2K representative gave a response to Gamespot that said “Cross-play is something we’re looking at closely, but we don’t have anything to confirm or announce at this time.”
It isn’t a concrete no, so it would appear that 2K Games and Gearbox are likely evaluating the possibility and seeing if it is feasible, given the time left in production before the game launches. While the game’s solo story is a fairly central focus in Borderlands, the series does have a significant online player base, so it would certainly be a worthwhile investment to have crossplay. And give Clap Trap some monster truck tires while you’re at it, Gearbox.
