After its first announcement before a couple of days, many people become ecstatic about the action RPG Borderlands 3. Thanks to the Epic Games Store and its revenue policy, GearBox Software has officially chosen the Epic Games Store as a main digital reseller for their upcoming Borderlands sequel. This move has been confirmed by Gearbox Software.
Theoretically, Gearbox Software has been a close worker with Epic Games throughout the past. This move has to be considered as common, and it was probably known yesterday, but needed a day more for official confirmation. Before a couple of days, there was a video gone live even if it wasn’s supposed to because it was deleted shortly after.
It seemed like it was already confirmed that Borderlands 3 is coming out exclusively on Epic Games Store for the PC platform. Now, many of you would probably argue which digital reseller is better to use, Steam or Epic Games Store. Well, there are two different perspectives looking at it. One’s the consumer, and the second is the publisher’s point of view. The more benefit the publisher gets, the bigger the chances of publishing the game on that Store. It is as simple as that.
The official tweet of the 2K logo appearing on the already deleted trailer can be found below:
