With just over a month to go until Borderlands 3 finally launches, Gearbox has confirmed that the game has now achieved gold status.
The team took to Twitter to thank everyone who worked to make it happen.

If you’re out of the loop on what ‘going gold’ means, no worries – you’re probably not the only one!
If a game goes gold, it means the game is all but complete and is now in the final stages of development. This usually also means that the final version of the game has been submitted for physical printing, if it’s a game that’ll have physical disc copies.
It also means that any patches, bug fixes, or any other tweaks to the game will either come later in the form of a ‘day one’ patch or general future patches.
In related Borderlands 3 news, Randy Pitchford recently confirmed that the game will, sadly, not have cross-play at launch.
However, this doesn’t mean that cross-play is completely out of the question, as Gearbox is apparently working towards supporting cross-play ‘as soon as practicable’.
Borderlands 3 is out on September 13th, 2019. It’ll be available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Windows PC.
