Borderlands 3 players on Xbox consoles, Windows, Stadia, and the Mac will soon be able to band together across platforms thanks to a coming cross-play update. But players on the PS4 and PS5 will be left out of that group and will be forced to play only with other users on the PlayStation Network.

Gearbox co-founder and CEO Randy Pitchford discussed the situation in a tweet Thursday morning, saying that "an update for Borderlands 3 has been prepared for release that includes full cross-play support across all platforms" but that "for certification, we have been required by the publisher [presumably Take Two] to remove cross-play support for PlayStation consoles."

Sony, you may remember, consistently blocked cross-platform capabilities on PlayStation consoles for years before finally opening up its walled garden to cross-platform play in late 2018. Even after that, though, some developers publicly accused Sony of "playing favorites" regarding which specific games were allowed to use the feature.
