As players reach the Borderlands 3 endgame and start hitting some the best spots for farming legendaries in BL3, they are likely to encounter one of the game's biggest problems: storage space. Indeed, with so much exciting gear available in Borderlands 3, some fans have been voicing concerns about the amount of time that they spend trying to make space for this gear in their inventories and banks. Fortunately, it seems that these concerns will be addressed at some point in the future.
Last week, a live stream saw Borderlands 3 Combat Designer Grant Kao field a number of questions about Gearbox Software's plans for the game moving forward. Among the information revealed by Kao was the fact that the developer will be nerfing one of the best Borderlands 3 legendary weapons, and he also took a moment to talk briefly about the concerns surrounding storage space, indicating that "the team has heard the request" for increased storage.
Unfortunately, Kao was not able to provide specific details on what exactly might be done to alleviate storage space issues, indicating that is not in his "area of expertise," but he did say that "it is being addressed." While such a vague response may not be exactly what those that are currently frustrated with storage in Borderlands 3 were hoping for, some will simply be happy to hear that the problem is on Gearbox's radar and that the company has "looked at it."
With respect to when a fix to this Borderlands 3 problem will come, that was also not clarified. Players are currently waiting for more information on the 30-day patch that Gearbox previously indicated would be implemented, and while there may be some adjustments to storage space in that update, that has not been officially confirmed.
More likely, the addressing of the Borderlands 3 storage space issue that Kao was referring to is something that will occur farther down the line, which means that players are going to need to continue to make due with what is currently provided to them by their banks and inventories. Unfortunately, with more content in the pipeline, including the Borderlands 3 Bloody Harvest event, the number of items that players wish to store is likely to grow, further exacerbating the problem at hand.
Borderlands 3 is out now for PC, PS4, and Xbox One, with a Stadia version also in development.
