Borderlands 3 It does not have cross-play in PS; Ryan talked about it

But if PlayStation supports cross-play and wants to see it in more games, why Borderlands 3 Don’t have it? Remember that a few weeks ago, the stolen Gearbox shooter received cross-play between Xbox and PC. The option was due to come to PlayStation, but Randy Pitchford, the studio’s CEO, says he has been asked to remove the option.

When Ryan was asked for comment, he said it was a «commercial gambling issue with a long-time partner,» referring to Take-Two. He noted that their policies are «in line with all distributors.»

You see, Ryan’s words didn’t make the situation very clear. He only indicated that there was a problem with Take-Two, the owner company Borderlands 3. Will they work to reach this solution? Hopefully Ryan can deliver on his promise to bring more shared games to PlayStation.

And you, what do you think of Ryan’s statements? Do you think PlayStation should put in more effort to work on cross-play? Tell us in the comments.
