Yesterday, Gearbox accidentally leaked a release date for Borderlands 3 in a tweet on Twitter, which was quickly deleted. The official announcement by Gearbox confirms that the leaked date, which was also September 13th, was the actual release date for the game as many had expected to be the case.
Gearbox has not commented yet on why the release date was posted on the game ‘s official Twitter page a day early as CEO Randy Pitchford had previously stated at the end of March that they would be announcing the release date on April 3rd.
Thankfully, some eagle-eyed Twitter users, including Wario64, were quick enough to grab screenshots of the original Tweet before it was deleted.
