A tweet from Randy Pitchford has revealed that the extremely hotly anticipated and long awaited Borderlands 3 will not have any sort of cross-play at launch.
Some folks may be speculating that this thing tomorrow may be about cross play. Tomorrow’s thing is awesome, but *not* about cross-play. But, Good News: We are committed to supporting cross-play for Borderlands 3 with our partners as soon as practicable after launch. #talklater https://t.co/XtUzrBpySP

However, that doesn’t mean that cross-play is completely out of the question.
Pitchford also said in his tweet that the team behind Borderlands “are committed to supporting cross-play for Borderlands 3 with our partners as soon as practicable after launch.”
The ‘thing tomorrow’ in question turned out to be a disproportionately hilarious trailer, by the way.
In summary: there’ll be no cross-play at launch for Borderlands 3, but there’s an extremely high chance of potential cross-play later.
