April Fools silliness, or only a silly slip-up? Hard to inform, however a message went out from Gearbox’s official Borderlands 3 twitter account earlier that was swiftly deleted. “Mayhem is Coming September 13. Pre-order now for the Gold Weapon Skins Pack!” says the tweet, now archived on The Wayback Machine, so you’ll be able to confirm for your self. Also tweeted was a brand new video containing the Epic Store brand within the bottom-left nook. It was captured by “Wario64” and embedded under. While not affirmation of exclusivity, it appears doubtless that the over-the-top loot n’ shooter is headed to the brand new storefront.

Whether the dates and Epic retailer brand had been supposed for (later) launch or not is debatable, so let’s simply assume they’re for the sake of argument. There’s additionally the likelihood that the information was ‘leaked’ early and deleted to get folks chatting over whether or not it’s actual or not. However you slice it, September 13th looks like a believable date, properly positioned to scoop up pre-holiday enterprise and be discounted somewhat in time for the winter gross sales. As for the Epic retailer brand, it’s no shock {that a} game as giant as Borderlands would seem on the brand new retailer.

If it does develop into an unique (timed or in any other case) it’s as a result of Epic supplied greater than no matter writer 2K felt could be misplaced from Steam, and if not then it’s only one extra retailer to select from. Personally, I wouldn’t be too stunned to see it as a retailer unique, and one Epic could be desirous to snap up. It’s a well-known sequence, a much-anticipated sequel and will properly carry folks to a brand new retailer. Either method, it’s simply hypothesis, however that launch date sounds believable sufficient to me.

In the meantime, don’t neglect that there are free HD remasters coming to the unique three Borderlands games, if you happen to’re in search of an excuse to return. They launch Wednesday, April third.
