It’s no surprise that Gearbox is far from done with the Borderlands franchise following the release of Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands and with the forthcoming Borderlands movie in post-production. The company announced today a popular Borderlands spinoff is returning this year with the return of Tales from the Borderlands.
In a tweet this afternoon from the Borderlands official Twitter account, it was revealed that Tales from the Borderlands would be receiving a second season, and Gearbox only lists it and 2K Games as being attached to the project. The tweet reads, “There are more stories to explore in the Borderlands universe. An all-new Tales from the Borderlands adventure is coming in 2022 from @GearboxOfficail and @2K. Stay tuned for a full announcement this summer.” The message came with a piece of art featuring three characters under the Borderlands logo with a big moon shining in the background.
The previous developer for season one of Tales of the Borderlands, Telltale Games, isn’t mentioned in the announcement, which makes sense as that company has taken more of a publishing role since it was shuttered and resurrected over the past few years. It’s unknown whether this new edition of Tales from the Borderlands will continue on with characters from the first season or move on to other stories within the universe.
Season one of Tales of the Borderlands is an adventure game following the exploits of former Hyperion employee Rhys and con artist Fiona in the rough yet humorous world of Pandora.
