Game news Borderlands: Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands 2 now seems more than likely
The Borderlands saga is undeniably one of the biggest successes of 2K Games and recently, it declined with the very nice spin-off Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands. Imagine that the game has obviously been a hit and that we can expect a sequel or, at the very least, “new experiences”.
Tiny Tina Turner’s Wonderlands
Last March, Gearbox was betting on dropping the Borderlands name for Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands, a spin-off that was going well in its universe and which took up a very similar concept: it was still an FPS-RPG playable up to four in cooperation, coupled with the same graphic touch, a very pronounced violence, a constant humor and a few million weapons to collect.
The difference is that the context abandoned science fiction to plant itself in a totally delirious heroic-fantasy framework, and for good reason: everyone was fictitious and imagined by the famous Tina, character from Borderlands, with even an aspect board game. A recipe that hit home and Randy Pitchford, the boss of the studio, has just confirmed that the operation was a commercial and critical success. Which brings us to the next point.
Always more guns
It was during the general meeting of shareholders of Embracer Group, to which Gearbox now recently belongs, that Randy Pitchford returned to the success of the software. And obviously, this one was more than there and above all, Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands is considered “like a new franchise”.
Gearbox Software scored a major victory last year (fiscal year, editor’s note) with the launch of a new franchise, Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands. Wonderlands has exceeded all of our expectations, both critically and commercially, and I am delighted to report that in addition to the excellent financial returns that will arrive over the next few quarters, we have established a solid beachhead.
Clearly, we now have a new franchise on our hands, with future experiences already in development at Gearbox.
The mass is said: we will hear again about Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands and Gearbox has already planned a solid future for her. Even if we do not know what these correspond to “future experiences”a second episode now seems more than possibleespecially since the firm bought the co-developer of the game, Lost Boys Interactive, last June with about 220 members all the same.
These numbers can therefore be used to build new experiences: a new game therefore, but also future DLC for the title already released or, why not, other concepts or a VR version (Borderlands 2 had received the same treatment with Borderlands 2 VR). We will see.
