I’m not going to fear monger about the game being dead on PC because it isn’t. I find games just fine. However it should be noted that the player count is lower than consoles, and with the already more competitive PC market and other similar games that are likely to take from the already smaller playerbase, the PC version of the game may in future months down the road dwindle to a concerning level.
Crossplay between PC and console would alleviate this problem, as that way the playerbases would not be split between platforms, which would also encourage more people to purchase the game due to no longer being as concerned about number of players.
The only argument against this I’ve seen is that PC players would have an unfair advantage with keyboard and mouse which means they would stomp. To that I disagree, as I play with a controller on PC and often come out ontop regardless. Hopefully gearbox saying the servers are connected which is why PC cannot be updated before consoles is a sign this will happen in the future.
