Developer Gearbox is taking advantage of PAX East to announce a new narrative spin-off from its Borderlands license.
Telltales is no more, but Tales From The Borderlands will mark its return in 2022. This is what developer Gearbox has just announced at PAX East.
After the closure of the studio known for its licensed narrative games such as The Walking Dead and The Wolf Among Usfew hoped for a return of the point’n click spin-off of the crazy FPS.
However, Gearbox achieves the impossible and takes the initiative to develop the next installment of Tales From The Borderlands internally.
New adventure, new characters, new tales.

A unique adventure
Although this new game is defined as a sequel, Gearbox has already announced that this adventure will feature a new cast of colorful characters.
The first title in this spin-off series featured a Hyperion employee named Rhys as well as Fiona, a professional scammer. We then followed them in their quest to try to open an ark, symbol of the Borderlands series and dream of any character in this universe.
For the moment, it is still impossible to know if these two endearing characters will be back in this sequel as secondary characters. Characters from the spin-off who have already appeared in a DLC of Borderlands 2 as well as in Borderlands 3logic would dictate that they are part of the second episode of their own series.
Especially since the end of the first episode acclaimed by fans and critics had left some questions unanswered. Certain narrative elements linking Tales From The Borderlands and Borderlands 3 deserve to be addressed in this sequel..
The year of Borderlands
With the release of Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands last March and the very soon arrival of the film Borderlands and its luxury cast (with Cate Blanchett and Jack Black to name a few), the year 2022 honors the license to the delight of fans.
As a reminder, Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands is a spin-off of Borderlands keeping the FPS and RPG gameplay of the original saga, but taking place in a crazy world imagined by little Tina who did not fail to mark the players with her crazy creations and her overflowing imagination in the previous opuses. You can embark on this adventure on PC, Xbox and PlayStation.
Gearbox has not yet wished to communicate the release date of their new narrative game, but promised to give more news this summer !
