Borderlands 3 Fans Aren’t Happy About The Epic Games Store Exclusivity
The day of reckoning is upon us. Gearbox Software has officially revealed when Borderlands 3 will be arriving, but they have also revealed which platforms the game will be coming to. Luckily, console players are safe from what has taken place, but those on PC… not so much.
Let’s just go ahead and rip the bandage off – Borderlands 3 is exclusive to the Epic Games Store on PC. As one might imagine, people haven’t exactly been thrilled with all of the exclusives that have been on the Epic Games Store as of late.

However, we will see how well the great crusade goes when one of the greatest video games ever made is only available on Epic’s store on PC. For the time being, fans are not happy at all. Let’s take a look at some examples on what the competition is actually breeding:
What’s your reasoning behind this? We should be as gamers happy to see healthy competitions and not a monopoly from Valve. Now they have to react to seeing AAA games leaving their Steam Store and propose something better for gamers. It’s all beneficial for us..

Valve could do the same but they won’t. Blame valve for not battling for the steam fan boys 🤣
