2K Games has announced that Borderlands 3 will be exclusive to the Epic Games Store on PC, but only for a limited period of time. 2K Games stated that the game will arrive on other store in April of 2020.

Of course, after 2K announced exclusive deal with Epic, people started review bombing Borderlands 2 on Steam. But Valve‘s new anti-review bomb system removed those — over 4000 reviews — from rating, making the first case of “off-topic reviews” marking.

Borderlands 3 will release on PC, PS4, and Xbox One on September 13.
