Borderlands 3 seems to be doing well and breaking Gearbox records on PC despite issues

Borderlands 3 has had a rocky launch in many areas, but certainly not in terms of how many people are actually playing it.

Randy Pitchford, Gearbox co-founder (who has been in some real hot water this year) tweeted out some news about the game’s concurrent player count on PC, noting that Borderlands 3 managed an all-time peak performance twice as high as Borderlands 2’s all-time peak.

This is despite the game’s buggy launch, which has seen players complaining of performance issues and numerous little issues that have popped up for them. Predictably, many of the responses to the tweet are attacking the game for releasing as an Epic Store exclusive.

Since then, Pitchford has tweeted some further updates on the game’s performance, indicating that the game’s playerbase is looking very healthy on PC right now, despite everything.
