When we found out that an epic game representative said we would have to discuss the matter with the publisher, which is a different answer than we have seen in other cases where games were withdrawn from the sale. Developers who have decided to withdraw their game from Epic Mega Sale since the sale began include Paradox Interactive, the first to draw Vampire: Masquerade – Bloodlines 2, and the game page is no longer available. Klei Entertainment was next, pull Oxygen is not included, and the same thing happens with the games page. You cannot browse these games via the Epic Games client.
It seems like it's not a problem platform Borderlands 3 because it is still available for pre-ordering on consoles.
Our original article on the whole business of fluctuating prices and games being drawn has since been updated to reflect the statements of publishers and developers. Epic Games also made a very public statement on Twitter earlier this afternoon:
We have changed how the pricing is shown during the sale to clearly reflect the publisher's sales prices.
Don't worry, you still get another $ 10 from us at qualifying purchases at checkout!

We have reached Gearbox Games and 2K for comments and further information on why Borderlands 3 is no longer available for pre-ordering at Epic Games Store and is updated as we learn more.
