In the gaming industry, where secrecy often surrounds upcoming projects, an accidental leak on LinkedIn has stirred excitement among fans. Randel Reiss, a developer who worked at Lost Boys Interactive, a Gearbox-owned company, inadvertently listed “Borderlands 4” and “Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands 2” in his profile description, alongside other titles like the first “Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands” and “Elder Scrolls Online.” This mention, which was later altered to “Unannounced Sequel [Unreal Engine 4],” has sparked rumors about the potential development of these sequels.
The main “Borderlands” series saw its latest installment, “Borderlands 3,” released in 2019. Given the series’ success and popularity, the anticipation of a fourth installment is high. With a few years already passed since the last release, fans are eagerly looking out for any news regarding a new title in the franchise.
Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands
“Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands,” a fantasy-themed spin-off from the main series, launched last year and was well-received by both critics and players. Our review rated it a solid 3 out of 5, and it enjoyed strong sales. Considering its recent release and success, a sequel seems plausible, though an official announcement might not be imminent.
In the backdrop of these speculations, Gearbox Software, the studio behind the “Borderlands” series, has been in the news for other reasons. Reports in September indicated that Embrace Group, the parent company of Gearbox Software, was contemplating selling off the developer. However, no significant developments have occurred as of now.
While the gaming community buzzes with excitement over the potential sequels to “Borderlands 4” and “Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands 2,” it is important to remember that game development is unpredictable.
Until official announcements are made, these titles remain in the realm of speculation. Nonetheless, the prospects of continuing these beloved series keep fans hopeful and eager for what might be on the horizon.
