That Gearbox Entertainment has new games in the works for the Borderlands universe is all but a guarantee, given the immense success and popularity of the franchise, and some recent evidence has emerged that seems to point at that as well.
Borderlands 4 and Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands 2 – neither of which have been officially announced by 2K or Gearbox – have been mentioned in the LinkedIn profile of Randel R., who was technical director at Gearbox on a short-term contract between May and July in 2022. You can view a screencap below.
Given the critical and commercial success that Borderlands and the original Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands have enjoyed in the past, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see sequels for either, of course. In fact, Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford called it a “new franchise” in September of 2022, and said that “future experiences” in the series were already under development.
Interestingly, the aforementioned LinkedIn profile also mentions a Brothers in Arms game. Whether that turns into anything material remains to be seen, especially given the fact that a new game in the series is something we’ve been hearing about for years and years (and years). As per the LinkedIn profile, all three of these games are being built on Unreal Engine 4.
It should be interesting to see whether any of these projects get officially announced at some point in the near future, especially given the fact that it’s been over four years now since the last mainline Borderlands title came out. Stay tuned for more updates.
