The Borderlands 3 Director’s Cut DLC that was supposed to appear on March 18, 2021 won’t. As one of Gearbox Software’s studios is in Texas, the snow, ice, and power outages in Texas in February 2021 resulted in a delay. It will now appear on April 8, 2021 instead.
Here’s the official statement from Gearbox’s Borderlands 3 Twitter account. It confirmed that everyone at the Texas studio and their loved ones are okay after the February 2021 storms.
Due to challenges arising from the severe weather that impacted Texas last month, the Director’s Cut add-on will now launch on April 8, 2021.
Thankfully, all of our team members and their families are safe and healthy, 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.
As a reminder, the Borderlands 3 Director’s Cut DLC will add new content to the game. Hemovorous the Invincible Varkid will appear as a raid boss. People can help investigate oddities for Ava’s Mysteriouslier podcast in new missions. There will also be the first three Vault Cards to provide new challenges.
Borderlands 3 is available for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. There are also PS5 and Xbox Series X updates. The Borderlands 3 Director’s Cut DLC will arrive on April 8, 2021.
