Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford has stated that Borderlands 3 has twice as many players on PC as Borderlands 2 did at launch despite its Epic Game store PC-exclusivity deal.
“Fun Fact: On PC, the data is that the launch day peak concurrent players of Borderlands 3 is about *twice-as-high* as the all time peak concurrent players of Borderlands 2,” Pitchford wrote on Twitter. “WOW! You guys are great!”
“Incredible day with new peak concurrency (and climbing),” Pitchford added the following day. “Best numbers in Gearbox history!”
