While fans wait for the announcement of “Borderlands 4,” another clue points to the existence of the shooter. “Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands 2” could also be one of the ongoing productions.
References to an imminent announcement of “Borderlands 4” have appeared several times in recent months, for example in the Developer profileswho were apparently involved in the project.
Information on the LinkedIn profile of Randel Reiss, who previously worked as technical director at Lost Boys Interactive, also suggests that sooner or later players will be able to dive into a new part of the loot shooter series. The support studio had worked on several Take-Two projects in recent years.
Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands 2 also in the works?
But also another sequel. is mentioned: On the one hand, Reiss refers to the existence of “Borderlands 4” in his profile. It also seems that he is preparing a spin-off sequel with “Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands 2”.
It’s no surprise that at least one of the two games exists, as the “Borderlands” series has pretty high sales figures. Only “Borderlands 3” managed to surpass the 18 million mark. The entire series has found a whopping 81 million buyers since the first game debuted in 2009. With over 27 million sales, “Borderlands 2” is the most successful part to date.

2022’s “Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands” was established as an independent brand by developer Gearbox due to commercial success and positive reviews.
“Wonderlands has exceeded all of our expectations, both critical and commercial. And I am delighted to have established a solid foundation in addition to the great financial rewards that will come in the coming quarters,” said Randy Pitchford, director of Gearbox Entertainment Company.
Gearbox for sale?
There could be a simple reason why “Borderlands 4” was not announced despite mounting evidence: developer Gearbox, responsible for the series, is one of the studios that could be sold as part of the restructuring of the Embracer Group.
Embracer had the developer acquired in 2021 for $1.3 billion and promised to expand the studio’s capacity. There may be a lack of funds for this now. After the lack of financial injection, Embracer had to initiate important cost reduction measures. Included are studio closures, layoffs, and game discontinuations.
last September reported Reutersthat Embracer Group is working with Goldman Sachs and Aream & Co. to evaluate a possible sales strategy for Gearbox.

“Borderlands” publisher Take-Two was considered a possible buyer, but when asked he only reacted evasively and noted collaborations on games like “Borderlands” and “Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands.” A joint announcement of the acquisition and the new games would have a lot of public relations potential if it were to come to pass.
What is certain is that the series’ next foray into the gaming world will be the movie “Borderlands,” whose premiere scheduled for August 9, 2024 is.
