Borderlands 3: Director’s Cut PEGI Rating Suggests Switch Port Is Coming


Borderlands 3 might be making its way to Nintendo Switch if a recent rating from the Pan European Game Information (PEGI) board website turns out to be accurate. The site published a new rating for the game’s Director’s Cut DLC, listing the product for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X | S, and most notably Nintendo Switch. While Borderlands 3 is already available on PC, PlayStation, and Xbox platforms, a Switch version has never been officially announced. At the time of this story’s publishing, the rating has not been removed or addressed by Gearbox Software or PEGI.

Borderlands 3, Director's Cut, Switch, rating

Borderlands 3: Director’s Cut is a DLC offering that brings players loads of new content, including some previously planned content that never made its way to the original release in 2019. The content is set to launch today at around 3:00 p.m. ET / 12:00 p.m. PT for PC, PlayStation, and Xbox players. If Borderlands 3 is indeed Switch-bound, the rating suggests that the Director’s Cut DLC will be coming in some form too. A PEGI rating is not an official announcement though, so it’s best to wait for formal news on the subject.

All previous mainline Borderlands entries have made their way to Switch before thanks to Borderlands Legendary Collection, leaving Borderlands 3 as the only exception. In fact, even the series’s Tales from the Borderlands spinoff made its way to Switch earlier this year. As such, Borderlands 3 on Switch would make sense.

Borderlands 3 first launched in 2019 as the third entry in Gearbox’s massively popular looter-shooter franchise. Four story-based expansions have launched since, with the game also having already received Designer’s Cut DLC before today’s new Director’s Cut add-on content.
