Borderlands 3 Director’s Cut delayed over severe Texan weather


Borderlands 3‘s Director’s Cut DLC has been delayed over problems that have arisen due to recent bouts of extreme weather in Texas, the state where Gearbox is based.

A recent cold snap resulted in a loss of power in the state; several deaths  were connected to the falling temperatures. Thankfully, Gearbox employees emerged from the crisis safe and sound, but development was impacted.

“Thankfully, all of our team members and their families are safe and healthy,” Gearbox said in a statement. “But our work on Director’s Cut was unavoidably disrupted and we’ve ultimately decided to shift the release date to ensure we deliver the best possible experience. We appreciate your understanding, and we’re excited for you to play Director’s Cut when it releases next month.”

Originally scheduled for 18 March, you can now expect the content from 8 April.

Borderlands 3 is available now on Windows PC, Xbox, PlayStation and Stadia where available.
