The head of Gearbox thinks that it’s going to be more significant than the change was from 2D to 3D.
The PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Series X (as well as the Xbox Series S) are just 1-1.5 months away from launch, and the president and CEO of Gearbox, Randy Pitchford, is quite excited. He was interviewed by GameSpot, and here, he said the following:
„I think customers will realize how profound of a difference it is to have the throughput capability that these new platforms bring. It’s just absolutely unreal. The leap there with [the] PlayStation 5 and [the] Xbox Series X is the biggest leap I have ever seen in the history of console generations. I’m saying, including the leap from 2D to 3D. It’s going to change the way we think about every bit of our experiences. However, it’s going to be hard to see that in the initial launch titles because a lot of the launch titles are games that were endeavoured upon before. Frankly, there are a lot of ports, and games that have already [available] on existing platforms that are being reimagined with these new platforms.
Still, I am super pumped about what it means for Borderlands 3 on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. We’ve expanded that a lot, with the upped resolution and frame rate to 4K and 60 FPS, and added in four-player split-screen, which is like rendering four copies of the game at once on a single console. It’s fricking cool, man. I’m excited about gamers that are going to get to experience Borderlands 3 on the next-gen platforms. I think it’s going to be a really big moment,” Pitchford said.
He might be a bit too excited.
