Borderlands 3 released on September 13, 2019 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One and, whilst it has not launched for the Switch yet, Randy Pitchford said that he “would love” for it to make the jump.
It wouldn’t be the first time that a game in the series was brought onto a portable device as Borderlands 2 was ported onto Sony’s PS Vita. However, it took games like Spyro a year to be brought onto Nintendo’s handheld system and so fans should temper their expectations. If it comes, it will likely be later rather than sooner.
A fan asked creative director Paul Sage on The Borderlands Show episode 1 whether the game would ever come to the Switch to which he responded, “never say never”. It isn’t a definitive confirmation but it isn’t a definitive no and so there is a shred of hope for the players to gnaw at.
The game may have only been out a week but fans have already reached the max level of 50 and found a plethora of glitches and exploits. Luckily, Gearbox are about to reveal their post-launch roadmap which is set to detail hot-fixes, content updates and story expansions.
Nonetheless, Randy Pitchford said that Borderlands 3 is giving Gearbox the “best numbers” in the companies history. A Switch port down the line could excel those figures further and continue the hype train even longer.
If Borderlands 3 is ported over to the Switch, it could even launch as part of a trilogy bundle with the recently remastered first game and its beloved sequel. For now, however, there is simply wishful thinking and developers interest to go off of.
