Telltale Games has been quite the busy bee recently. As well as being in a partnership with HBO Global Licensing to bring an interactive Game of Thrones episodic series, Telltale has partnered with Gearbox Software and 2K Games to bring a Borderlands game of the same ilk by 2014.
Coming to consoles, Mac and PC, and mobile devices, Tales from the Borderlands is set within the Borderlands 2 section of the Borderlands universe, and the series will explore and expand upon both known and new Borderlands characters on the world of Pandora.
“Gearbox shares the independent spirit that Telltale was founded on, and like Telltale, they’ve broken the boundaries of what to expect within a gaming genre,” said Dan Connors, co-founder and CEO of Telltale Games in a press release. “Our partnership is something that we are very excited about, because it will unite the incredibly rich world of Borderlands with Telltale’s focus on storytelling driven by player choice, and characters that people truly care about.”
The Borderlands franchise has sold over 15 million units worldwide so far, and Gearbox has expressed incredible optimism for this partnership.
“At the 2012 Spike TV VGAs, our studios and games – Borderlands 2 and The Walking Dead - were fortunate to do incredibly well that night, winning more awards than any other games!” said Randy Pitchford, President of Gearbox Software in the same press release. “So we met up later for a great first date, one thing lead to another and, well, we’re having a baby. Borderlands is incredibly important to us, so it is meaningful to share that with this partnership. I have great confidence and excitement for what Telltale has in store for its all-new adventures in our universe.”
Tales from the Borderlands will be available digitally in 2014 for consoles, Mac / PC, and mobile devices, but specifics as to when has yet to be announced. We’ll inform you once we know.
