Yesterday, a Nintendo Switch rating for Borderlands 3: Director’s Cut was spotted on the PEGI ratings board.
What’s a bit weird about this is the fact the “Director’s Cut” is actually a Season 2 DLC add-on (which just got released this week on other platforms) and the base game hasn’t even been confirmed for the hybrid system.
So, what’s going on? While many believe it could be a sign of a more official announcement in the future, GameSpot writer and verified Twitter user Gabe Gurwin has supposedly been in contact with a 2K representative. Apparently, Borderlands 3 is “not coming to Switch” and it’s an “error” on PEGI’s end that 2K has now had removed.
We’ve had a look ourselves, and sure enough – the Nintendo Switch listing is gone from the official PEGI rating:
Although the Nintendo rating has been removed, there’s still (arguably) mounting evidence that Borderlands 3 could eventually land on the Switch.
Apart from every other entry in the series already being available on this hardware, there was one rather interesting discovery made by YouTuber Doctre81 last September.
Development studio and port specialist Fractured Byte posted a job listing seeking game developers (familiar with Switch) to work on an Unreal Engine project. The genre was a “shooter” and one of the tasks was to aid shipping games – like the first two Borderlands games – for the Switch.
Do you think Borderlands 3 will eventually make its way across to the Switch? Leave a comment down below.
