Randy Pitchford, President and CEO of Gearbox Software, squashed a long-running rumor on Twitter regarding Borderlands 3. The belief has been that Gearbox had signed exclusive rights to advertise Borderlands 3 with Microsoft. Pitchford revealed that there is no such agreement with Microsoft.
Where are you getting that? Gearbox signed no such thing with Microsoft. How are these things becoming propagated as fact when there is zero basis in reality?
