The highly anticipated Borderlands 3 is set to launch across Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on September 13. During the game's reveal from earlier in the year developer Gearbox noted that releasing on multiple platforms was essential and that its partnership with Epic Games was a step in pursuing cross-platform play.

In interviews and posts Gearbox president Randy Pitchford mentioned that it was a feature that the team was actively looking into. And for a co-op shooter like Borderlands 3, being able to play with a group across PC, Xbox, and PlayStation would be quite momentous.

Ahead of a new Borderlands 3 reveal happening tonight Randy has taken to Twitter to confirm that it isn't related to cross-play but that "we are committed to supporting cross-play for Borderlands 3 with our partners as soon as practicable after launch". Adding that it plans to work with all parties to enable "cross-play on as many platforms as possible".

No doubt working with the relevant parties and platforms like the Epic Games Store, Xbox Live, and the PlayStation Network is the hold-up versus the technical implementation of the feature. According to developers, like Psyonix who created Rocket League - cross-play was a relatively easy thing to get going, and was a matter of being given the green light to 'flick the switch'. Something that was apparently the case with Epic's own Fortnite, with the green light seemingly being the go-ahead from Sony.

Here's hoping this is a feature that's added to Borderlands 3 sometime this year as opposed to later down the track. In other news, Borderlands 3 is having a reveal of sorts tonight - via YouTube.
