Borderlands 3 is about to have its gameplay revealed on May 1, 2019, but there’s always time for some leaks, which we’ve already reported, speculations and expressing desires that we know won’t (probably) never get to happen.
With that said, we’re talking about Borderlands coming to the Nintendo Switch platform, one that Gearbox has repeatedly discussed but never had a chance to work on or at least it seems so.
Randy Pitchford, CEO at the developer and talented magician, has talked to fans about the possibility that Borderlands, as a series, might be getting some port or release on Nintendo Switch, and said that he “would love to see that happen.”
We do know that Nintendo Switch runs games that are way heavier than Borderlands 3, like DOOM or Wolfenstein II, to name a few, and while that would require an external developer and some cut here and there, we don’t see why that couldn’t happen anytime soon.
On top of that, it’s also worth noting that Borderlands already has a collection with B2 and The Pre-Sequel out there, that could be easily re-remastered for Switch, and has also relaunched the first chapter (that was released on PS3 and Xbox 360…) for the latest consoles. Not to mention that Borderlands 2 has even released on PlayStation Vita back in the days.
So, there are plenty of ways to make it happen, Randy; you’ll probably need to make a phone call to your publisher 2K Games and tell them what you said that fan on Twitter. It’s very simple.
I would love to see that happen.
