It's a snowy day in hell for Gearbox Software, as they have just delayed the Borderlands 3 Director's Cut add-on due to Texas' bad weather. Originally, the Director's Cut was supposed to arrive on March 18. It will be the second half of the Season Pass 2 that was announced late last year. It's now coming out three weeks later then it was originally supposed to, on April 8. Check out the announcement below:

Due to challenges arising from the severe weather that impacted Texas last month, the Director’s Cut add-on will now launch on April 8. Thankfully, all of our team members and their families are safe and healthy, but our work on Director’s Cut was unavoidably disrupted and we’ve ultimately decided to shift the release date to ensure we deliver the best possible experience. We appreciate your understanding, and we’re excited for you to play Director’s Cut when it releases next month.

There are also some hotfixes that are going out today. A melee exploit involving Amara has been fixed, Gearbox is increasing the damage of some weapons, and R.Y.N.A.H will now be able to loot enemies. The Siren's Remnant skill was also doing more damage than Gearbox intended, so that's being fixed, as it was doing damage via melee, slide, and slam damage, while the skill was originally supposed to affect the gun and skill damage.

Quick Take

This definitely sucks for Borderlands 3 fans, but it makes sense. Gearbox wants to release the best version of the Director's Cut possible, and due to the weather they aren't going to be able to do that. So, they are going to delay the release to make it as good as they can. This makes sense, but who know if the Director's Cut will actually be worth the hype. We'll have to see.
