Randy Pitchford Responds to Borderlands Review Bombers

Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford has offered his take on the flood of negative Steam user reviews being posted on Borderlands games, which has occurred in the wake of Borderlands 3 being announced as an Epic Games Store exclusive.

Responding to Gearbox developer Scott Velasquez, who tweeted his feelings on Steam allowing people to misuse the reviews system for protest reasons, Pitchford commented that “this misuse makes me kind of happy about 2k’s decision”, referring to Borderland 3’s publisher’s decision to make the game an Epic Games Store exclusive for the first six months after launch.

Last week was a big time for Gearbox, with the announcement of Borderlands 3’s release date and its many versions. A listing on the Microsoft store also let slip that Borderlands 3 may support cross-platform co-op, too. And if you were worried about who gets the goodies, don’t worry: co-op players won’t have to fight over loot.
