In a surprising turn of events, the existence of Borderlands 4 and Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands 2 has seemingly been leaked. The leak came from an unlikely source – a former Gearbox employee who listed their experience working on both games on LinkedIn. This revelation has caused quite a stir among fans of the Borderlands franchise, as well as those who enjoyed the original Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands.
Given the professional nature of LinkedIn and the direct involvement of the studio, it is safe to assume that the experience listed by the former employee is accurate. This suggests that they had knowledge of Gearbox’s future projects, including the highly anticipated follow-ups to the Borderlands and Wonderlands franchises.
While the leak confirms what many fans have been hoping for, it is not entirely surprising. The Borderlands franchise has long been a flagship for Gearbox, with each entry proving to be a reliable sales success. Borderlands 3, the latest installment in the series, reportedly sold over 18 million copies by 2023. Similarly, Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands was also a major sales success upon its release. It inspired enough confidence in Gearbox that they immediately began referring to it as a new franchise, hinting at future experiences in the same vein. Therefore, a sequel to Wonderlands seems like a natural progression.
However, there are complications to this seeming confirmation of games in development. In recent months, rumors have circulated that Gearbox Software is up for sale as its parent company, Embracer Group, looks to cut costs. Embracer has also confirmed the cancellation of 15 “mainly unannounced” projects at various studios, including Gearbox. It is unlikely that Borderlands and Wonderlands fall under these cancellations, considering their profitability and popularity. Nevertheless, it is worth noting the uncertain future of Gearbox and the potential impact it may have on these projects.
As of now, Gearbox has not made any official announcements regarding Borderlands 4 or Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands 2. However, it is expected that more details will be revealed in the future, possibly once Gearbox either settles within the Embracer group or undergoes a change of ownership. Fans eagerly await any updates about these alleged projects and can only hope that they become a reality.
The leak on LinkedIn has created quite a buzz within the gaming community. Borderlands 4 and Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands 2 seem to be on the horizon, although official confirmation is yet to come. Fans of the Borderlands franchise and Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands can only speculate and anticipate the potential adventures that lie ahead. Stay tuned for more news and updates about these exciting alleged projects.
