Should we expect Borderlands 3 to run better on PC?

Gearbox is working on a performance/quality of life patch for Borderlands 3

In our performance analysis and optimisation guide for Borderlands 3, we noted that the game's PC release is far from perfect, suffering from CPU-limited performance in some scenarios while also coming with a buggy DirectX 12 implementation. 

In a recent Twitter post, Gearbox has confirmed that the company is working on a "performance and quality of life" patch for Borderlands 3. At this time it is unknown what this patch will change, but we are hopeful that it will improve Borderlands 3's user experience.      

One change that we would like to see if the option to select DirectX 11 or DirectX 12 when booting the game on PC. This will work around the game's DirectX 12 boot issues and allow gamers to more easily switch back to DirectX 11 is they experience game boot issues. Right now, players who cannot boot Borderlands 3 under DirectX 12 can follow this guide to revert to Borderlands 3's DirectX 11 mode.  

While a "final" DirectX 12 implementation is promised in an upcoming patch, we expect Gearbox's early performance/quality of life patch to focus on smaller issues. Especially those that impact console players. Sadly, Gearbox has not released an ETA for its upcoming Borderlands 3 performance/quality of life patch.
