Borderlands Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford would 'love to see' Borderlands on Switch

Back during PAX East, various teasers from Gearbox Software had led fans to believe that Borderlands would be coming to Nintendo Switch in some form. Instead, they ended up announcing Bulletstorm: Duke of Switch Edition for Switch. That’s got people happy too, but gosh, some people still really want Borderlands. So a fan on Twitter asked Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford directly about the chances of the series coming to Switch. Pitchford said he would “love to see that happen.”

Does this guarantee Borderlands will be coming to Nintendo Switch? God no. Developers are only happy to agree with fans about fantastical possibilities without having any intention or ability to follow through on them. Still, having the direct word of Randy Pitchford on the subject is encouraging. Keep holding out hope if you’re a fan!
