Borderlands 2 VR is headed to PSVR next month, but PC VR headset owners are undoubtedly curious to know if Gearbox’s massive hit shooter will eventually make it to Oculus Rift and HTC Vive too. According to short message in new promo video, Sony is confirming that Borderlands 2 VR is a timed exclusive, giving it at very least a five month minimum on the PSVR platform.
The video (linked below) was published by PlayStation Europe and flashes a small subtitle for a few brief seconds reading “Borderlands 2 VR is exclusive to PS VR for a minimum of 5 months from launch.”
Borderlands 2 VR is slated to launch on PSVR December 14th, putting a hypothetical PC VR launch date as early as May 14th, 2019.
While neither Gearbox nor publisher 2K Games have publicly made a PC VR launch certain, if the game follows in Skyrim VR’s (2017) footsteps we could see day-one support for Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, and possibly even Windows VR headsets. Skyrim VR first launched on PSVR back in November 2017, releasing just shy of five months later on Steam for Rift and Vive.
That said, it’s a pretty rare occurrence when larger publishers openly admit to timed platform exclusivity, especially with such a specific time frame. Whatever the case may be, PC VR headset owners can at least circle a date in their calendars now to start salivating over the prospect of stepping into the dusty boots of the game’s four Vault Hunters and hanging out with Claptrap.
