Randy Pitchford, CEO of Gearbox, talked about cross-play would be included in Borderlands 3. He was so adamant in the feature that he said it was a “prerequisite.” However, just because the CEO said something doesn’t mean things will happen.
As reported by Gamespot, a 2K representative stated that “Cross-play is something we’re looking at closely, but we don’t have anything to confirm or announce at this time.” This news comes out after the Microsoft Store pre-order page stated that cross-play was a feature. It has now been removed.
Cross-play between consoles and PC is a new luxury in the online game world. The most popular multiplayer games such as Minecraft, Fortnite, and Rocket League have the feature.Hopefully it can be included in Borderlands 3 in the near future as I would love to play with people of all consoles.
Some folks may be speculating that this thing tomorrow may be about cross play. Tomorrow’s thing is awesome, but *not* about cross-play. But, Good News: We are committed to supporting cross-play for Borderlands 3 with our partners as soon as practicable after launch. #talklater https://t.co/XtUzrBpySP
