Cross-save support for PS Vita Borderlands 2 coming Tuesday, says Gearbox

The PlayStation Vita version of Borderlands 2 will add cross-save functionality with the PlayStation 3 on Tuesday, two weeks after the game was first available at retail, the studio's president announced over Twitter.

The feature will come through a patch to Borderlands 2's PS3 version on that day, Randy Pitchford said. Mindful that last week he said cross-save functionality would arrive on Friday, he added "The news felt more reliable/credible today than last time."

Borderlands 2 launched on May 13, though it was available a week earlier as part of a $200 bundle with the PS Vita Slim. When it arrived without cross-save functionality enabled, several fans complained about it to Gearbox's forums.

Borderlands 2's Vita version was made by 2K Games, Sony and Iron Galaxy Studios; while it includes six downloadable content extensions released along with the console versions of the game, it only supports two-player multiplayer.

Gearbox is working on two unannounced projects for next-gen consoles, though it is co-developing Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel with 2K Australia. That game will launch on PS3 and Xbox 360.
