Borderlands 3 Director’s Cut Delayed Following Aftermath of Texas Storm
The highly-anticipated Borderlands 3: Director’s Cut originally was meant to release next week on March 18. However, unfortunately, fans will have to wait a bit longer for the new and improved version. This is as a result, of the aftermath of the Texas winter storm.
While the storm is over, it has left a trail of devastation in its path leading to blackouts that affected over 9.9 million people. As a result, the storm has been reported as the costliest natural disaster in Texan history.
Therefore it’s understandable that Gearbox Studios, developers of the Borderlands series and the upcoming Borderlands 3: Director’s Cut would be impacted alongside other businesses based in Frisco, Texas.
The Borderlands 3Twitter announced today that vault hunters will have to wait an extra month for the game to release on April 8th. Fortunately, Gearbox stated, “Thankfully, all of our team members and their families are safe and healthy”.
Many Borderlands fans expressed their sympathies and respect for those who were affected at Gearbox Studios and understood that the recent disaster is justifiable for the delay.
