CEO Randy Pitchford confirmed the company’s intention to offer the feature “on as many platforms as possible” after the game’s release in response to speculation of an imminent cross-play reveal.
A YouTube video (below) set to go live at 7am PT / 10am ET / 3pm BST today asked players to tune in “for a celebration of togetherness”.
Whatever the studio’s set to reveal, Pitchford claimed on Twitter it’s not related to cross-play.
“Some folks may be speculating that this thing tomorrow may be about cross play,” he said on Monday. “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.”
Pitchford said in April Gearbox has a “very keen interest in cross-platform play” in relation to Borderlands 3, while a spokesperson for 2K said the publisher was looking “closely” at the feature.
