Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands: Can The Borderlands Spin-Off Become A “Franchise”?!

At the Embracer Group’s annual general meeting, Randy Pitchford, head of Gearbox, called Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands a “franchise” and revealed that a sequel is in the works.



Speaking at the Embracer Group Annual General Meeting (AGM), Randy Pitchford, Gearbox’s chief executive, talked about the success of Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands. It’s no secret that this Borderlands spin-off, which in many ways expanded on the Assault on Dragon Keep DLC from Borderlands 2, has been a massive hit with fans.

As first reported and paraphrased by VGC, Pitchford revealed that Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands “shattered all of our target expectations, both critically and commercially.”

Gearbox intends to build on this success. A Borderlands movie is already in the works, and Borderlands 4 seems sure to be forthcoming, but Gearbox is already working on additional content for the game in some form.

Pitchford stated that Gearbox has “a new franchise on [its] hands, with future experiences already under development.” It was not immediately clear whether this was a reference to a new Tiny Tina game being in development, a second season pass or additional DLC in the pipeline. Either option seems realistic.



Néhány napja kiszivárgott, hogy a Gearbox és a 2K egy spin-offon dolgozik a saga főszereplésével, melynek Tiny Tina lesz a főszereplője.



A second season pass would more quickly capitalize on the game’s current success, and there is precedent for additional DLC in the franchise, as Borderlands 3 received two season passes. However, in this statement, the word “franchise” is followed by the word “experiences”, and one game alone does not make a franchise (or even a sub-franchise).

Of course, if this indicates that Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands 2 is in development, it’s probably at the earliest possible stage.

After all, Gearbox acquired Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands co-developer Lost Boys Interactive earlier this year. While this doesn’t mean concrete support for a new game, it does bode well for Wonderlands as a franchise. At the very least, it’s clear that fans of the wider Borderlands franchise will be getting more in-universe games. It’s hard to say whether Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands 2 or Borderlands 4 will generate more anticipation, but there’s no doubt that audiences will welcome both.
