In a recent reveal from Gearbox, Borderlands 3 was confirmed to eventually support cross-platform play.

The news came from Gearbox CEO, Randy Pitchford, via Twitter in response to fan speculation earlier in the week. While the team is looking into ways of introducing cross-play to Borderlands 3, the much-desired feature will not be available at launch. Pitchford did not disclose what timeframe players can expect to receive support.

The tweet arrived before the release of a fun musical “So Happy Together” trailer (below). The video did not show anything in terms of gameplay, though, the theme of togetherness coinciding with the cross-play news was a nice touch.

Recently, Gearbox shared some screenshots of the game’s world, so be sure to check those out here.
