Borderlands 3 “Not Happening” For Nintendo Switch, Says Gearbox Head
Nintendo Switch has been fully revealed and fans are expecting a great line-up of third party games for the console. While Nintendo has partnered with dozens of third-party publishers and developers, one third party developer is not sure if their flagship series will come to Nintendo Switch.
Fans of the Borderlands franchise asked Gearbox Software’s Randy Pitchford if there is a possibility that Borderlands 3 would come to Nintendo Switch? To this Pitchford replied that he does not see Borderlands 3 coming to the hybrid console as Nintendo has other priorities.
@dECU_nutt I do not see that as happening. We were talking to Nintendo, but that stopped for some reason. They have other priorities.
