Here’s some good news for beleaguered Borderlands 3 fans: According to Gearbox, the game’s launch day concurrent player count was two times the peak concurrent player count on Borderlands 2.

With the game suffering from a raft of technical problems at launch, this is no doubt good news. If it’s looking to be anywhere near the kind of cash cow Borderland 2 turned out to be, Gearbox will get their act together and fix the numerous performance and other issues players are experiencing right now.

Our Borderlands 3 review will be out in a few days. While the game itself is excellent, performance is far lower than the previous title, without an accordant increase in visual fidelity.

This puts Borderlands 2 in the company of Assassin’s Creed Origins and Kingdom Come: Deliverance, while not looking anywhere near as nice.

Here’s to hoping the high concurrent player count will ensure that Gearbox takes the game seriously and fixes outstanding issues.
