Borderlands 3 Won’t Support Cross-Play at Launch; Definitely in Dev’s Plans

Borderlands 3 is undoubtedly one of the most anticipated titles this year, and marks the third main entry in Gearbox Studios’ wacky franchise. Nowadays, studios try to facilitate for different console owners and PC players to play together, and this is the studio’s intention with Borderlands 3.

Gearbox boss Randy Pitchford used his Twitter to give fans an idea of how the studio intends to handle crossplay. He confirmed it won’t be supported at launch, but will definitely get added later on in an update.

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.

To be clear, there will not be any cross-play functionality in Borderlands 3 at launch as we work closely with our partners to create a positive cross-play experience as soon as practicable. We are committed to cross-play on as many platforms as possible.

Borderlands 3 releases on September 13th for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
