If you’ve ever wondered if Nintendo’s upcoming console that has set the world into a frenzy would be getting Borderlands 3, you’d be heavily mistaken at this bit of news, and it’s partially due to the company who is about to attempt shaking the world. While Gearbox hasn’t confirmed the new game will be titled Borderlands 3, it’s safe to assume this isn’t happening, especially when Randy Pitchford himself comes out and makes that abundantly clear.
@dECU_nutt I do not see that as happening. We were talking to Nintendo, but that stopped for some reason. They have other priorities.

His response was plenty clear when responding to the original tweet and there is a bit of resounding disappointment from fans of both the new console and Gearbox themselves. This continues on to prove the point Nintendo has a lot to work on in order to keep fans entertained. With this news, it proves that Nintendo may not have what it takes to prove that, and keep ups as entertained as we would hope.
As fans already own consoles and PCs that can play the game, it’d be safe to bet that Nintendo and Gearbox have a lot to work on together in order to keep their fans amused and rather entertained. With a subscription cost and everything coming with their new console, they need something to look forwards to, and Borderlands 3 would have been the game to do that.
Will this deter you from getting a Nintendo Switch if you are preparing to get one? Let us know in the comments.
