Console crossplay is something that we’ve dreamed of for years but rarely (in the grand scheme of things) actually get the chance to enjoy. If your buddy has a PS4 and you have an Xbox One, for example, there are a lot of games that you can’t play online with each other. The same thing goes for PC gamers with console-addicted friends that just don’t want to sink the money into a good gaming build. When it comes to Borderlands 3, however, crossplay could actually happen, so whether you’re on a PC, Xbox, or PS4, you’ll be able to play with all your friends. Well, maybe.
Discussion about whether or not Borderlands 3 will support crossplay has been taking place far and wide, just like you can see here on Resetera. Needless to say, everyone wants it. Well, GameSpot finally decided to reach out to 2K Games with the big question and, while it didn’t get a stone-cold “yes,” it didn’t exactly get a no either. In truth, 2K Games did the usual beating around the bush that we always see with questions like this about games that aren’t released. Their Response?
“Cross-play is something we’re looking at closely, but we don’t have anything to confirm or announce at this time.”
Yeah, we know, that’s not a commitment, but it’s definitely not a no either. In the past, these types of responses are usually followed up in the relatively near future with exactly what we asked for. For now, we’ll just have to wait and see, but it certainly sounds promising.
If you’re not aware, Borderlands 3 will be released on September 13 with the PC version being an Epic Games Store exclusive. And, you won’t be able to be a loot ninja either as developers are redesigning the loot system.
