Randy Pitchford finally shot that rumor down.
Borderlands 3

A few days back, the Borderlands 3 Twitter promised an upcoming "celebration of togetherness." Many took that little teaser to mean that Gearbox was going to announce that Borderlands 3 would ship with cross-platform play support.

Well, it doesn't have cross-platform support. Today's "celebration" was for something that really wasn't even close to cross-platform support. Yesterday, Randy Pitchford finally shot those rumors down but not before letting them simmer and stew for a few days following the tease. He plays the PR card of suggesting that cross-play will be added at some vague time after launch.

Pitchford notes that they will "work close with (their) partners to create a positive cross-play experience as soon as practicable." He continues on to say, "we are committed to cross-play on as many platforms as possible."

What then was today's big "celebration of togetherness?" It was a music video. Specifically, it was a music video featuring Borderlands 3 characters dancing to Happy Together from The Turtles.

Borderlands 3 will be released on September 13, 2019 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Epic Games Store. It will be eligible for other PC stores in late March 2020.
