It also appears that Borderlands 3 will release on the Epic Games store, this was grabbed by Twitter user Wario64. The deleted tweet shows a Twitter video of the game with an Epic Games logo in the bottom corner.

“2K/Take Two has exclusive publishing rights for Borderlands 3 and makes all decisions regarding price-points, territories, distribution and platform partnerships,” wrote Gearbox Software’s Randy Pitchford in a tweet addressing the news of its upcoming release on Epic Games Store. “As a customer, I’m happy to shop in different stores – already do! I’ve bought games from Xbox, Playstation, Switch, Steam, Origin, GOG, Humble, Uplay, Epic and other stores. To me, exclusives are fine when they come w/ advantages and when they are short – say, six months”

“For what it’s worth, 2K’s decisions aside, myself and the team at Gearbox have a very keen interest in cross-platform play. We believe multi-platform support is a pre-requisite and Epic’s leadership with cross platform support is helpful to our interests there.”

More details should be released tomorrow April 3rd, stay tuned!
