It was apparently accidentally leaked that Borderlands 3 will be an Epic Store exclusive.
In response to the backlash, Randy Pitchford has thrown 2K/Take Two under the blame bus, saying: “2K/Take Two has exclusive publishing rights for Borderlands 3 and makes all decisions regarding price-points, territories, distribution and platform partnerships. Please direct all inquiries regarding any of those topics to 2K. We are just the talent.”
Pitchford went on to praise Epic and store/platform exclusives, before reiterating that any complaints about Borderlands 3 being an Epic exclusive should be directed to 2K/Take Two rather than him or Gearbox.
Randy did say that he felt an acceptable timed exclusive was six months, but that may or may not reflect the reality of Borderlands 3…
