Gearbox was on hand at PAX East with some news: there is going to be a follow-up sequel to Tales from the Borderlands, one of the most revered original stories in the Borderlands series. The first game was developed by Telltale Games and was a far cry from the looter shooter the series is known for.
Featuring new characters with a story spread across five episodes, Tales from the Borderlands introduced Rhys and Fiona — two corporate employees on the hunt for a Vault on Pandora.
“This time we’re doing it to imagine all-new characters and all-new stories in from the Borderlands,” Pitchford told PAX East. “So soon, we’ll be announcing an entirely new game set in the Borderlands universe and presented in that style of interactive fiction. I’m talking about an all-new Tales from the Borderlands adventure.”
Even with Telltale being revived under new management, the sequel is being worked on in-house at Gearbox. The studio is promising more will be shared this summer — likely around Summer Game Fest but we do know the sequel will feature new characters and a new story.
