- Gearbox Software is a US-based developer, known for an array of noteworthy original IPs.
- Both Borderlands and Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands are two highly renowned first-person shooters.
- As per a reference spotted on a dev’s LinkedIn, sequels to both these games are in the works.
Gearbox Software last launched a Borderlands game in September 2019 and then went on to release a spin-off three years later in 2022, titled Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands. Both games have done splendidly in terms of commercial success, and according to a new leak online, it seems that Gearbox is busy developing sequels for these games, namely Borderlands 4 and Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands 2.
Taking a look at the “Experience” section of Randal R.’s LinkedIn profile (thanks Idle Sloth), it’s been spotted that the person in question is working as the Studio Technical Director at Lost Boys Interactive, a subsidiary of Gearbox that it acquired back in 2022. For those not in the know, Lost Boys helped Gearbox Software co-develop Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands.
Now, under that particular section on the LinkedIn profile, mentions of Borderlands 4 and Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands 2 have leaked, along with some other interesting names, such as Zombie Sim UE4 and the iconic shooter franchise Brothers in Arms. This sets things up for a ton of speculation going forward, especially knowing that Gearbox’s CEO also confirmed the existence of a Brothers in Arms project in 2021.
This lines in perfectly with another string of news that unfolded previously. Back in September 2022, Gearbox boss Randy Pitchford publicly declared that the launch of Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands has taken the company aback with how well it did, thereby green-lighting a sequel and then some thanks to the solid reception (thanks VGC).
Gearbox Software achieved a major victory this past year with the launch of a new franchise, Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands. Wonderlands shattered all of our target expectations, both critically and commercially, and I’m thrilled to report that in addition to great financial rewards from this victory that will be coming our way in the coming quarters, we have established a firm beachhead. We now clearly have a new franchise on our hands, with future experiences already under development at Gearbox,” said Randy Pitchford during an annual general meeting.
On a side note, Borderlands 3 has shipped over 18 million units so far, becoming the fastest-selling 2K title of all time and being a part of a franchise that’s now more profitable than The Witcher and even Mortal Kombat. However, the best-selling game in the franchise is still Borderlands 2, having rolled over more than 22 million units, as confirmed by Gearbox itself
