Why Borderlands 3 May Not Be Available For The Nintendo Switch
Randy Pitchford, one of the founders of Gearbox Software and currently its CEO, has said that Borderlands 3 would not come to Nintendo’s hottest gaming console. A fan asked Pitchford via his Twitter account, if the third sequel to Borderlands will be making it on the Nintendo Switch. Pitchford replied on the negative and said that, “I do not see that as happening. We were talking to Nintendo, but that stopped for some reason.” The Gearbox Software CEO also added that Nintendo has “other priorities.”
Still, a lot of Borderlands 3 fans are reacting to this situation and want it to be rectified. Plenty of fans replied in the same thread in Pitchford’s Twitter account. This only goes to show that fans really want it to become available on the Nintendo Switch because they want to experience it on the console. Fans do hope that Nintendo gets Borderlands on the Nintendo Switch because the game is popular and highly acclaimed. The game is also cel-shaded so Nintendo Switch would not be handling it with difficulty.
Gearbox Software Announcements and Release Dates
Pitchford also took to Twitter last April 2016 the announcement that Battleborn art director, Scott Kester, will be developing the next Borderlands sequel. Gearbox Software still has not announced the available platform for the action role-playing first-shooter game. But it is more likely to appear on the PC, PS4 and Xbox One. Moreover, the release date of the said game is still obscure.
Pitchford also revealed through Twitter new projects for Gearbox Software. The development studio has established a new Canadian studio. The new studio is currently developing on a new game. The said game was not yet specified and will be announced this 2017.
