After unveiling Borderlands 3, Gearbox and 2K Games recently confirmed that it will be an Epic Games store exclusive, but it might not have cross-play. Yes, despite appearing in the official list of capabilities on the Xbox Store page, the cross-play tag has been removed and a 2K spokesman has confirmed the feature isn’t definite.
Speaking to Gamespot, a 2K spokesman said, “Cross-play is something we’re looking at closely, but we don’t have anything to confirm or announce at this time.”
If cross-play is to happen, it will be for Xbox and PC as Borderlands 3 isn’t confirmed for the Nintendo Switch, and it’s unlikely the feature will ever be available for the PlayStation 4. With Borderlands 3 being exclusive to the Epic Games store at launch, it’s possible the timed exclusivity has slightly delayed cross-play functionality as the Epic Games store is a new platform for Xbox and the publishers to test out technically.
Borderlands 3 launches for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and the Epic Games store on September 13.
In other gaming news, Tales From The Borderlands is better than the Borderlands main series, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is easier than Dark Souls and Bloodborne, and Atlus has teased “new Phantom Thieves” for Persona 5 S.
