Telltale Games, Gearbox Software and 2K Announce 'Tales from the Borderlands'

Award-winning developers, Gearbox Software and Telltale Games, have teamed up to release an episodic series for the Borderlands franchise in 2014 called Tales from the Borderlands.The two developers have partnered together alongside publisher 2K games to develop a more story driven series in the Borderlands universe. They hope to achieve this by involving the player in the type of decision making that was so prevalent in Telltale Game‘s The Walking Dead episodic series last year.

The two developers met at last year’s VGA‘s in 2012 after both had won more awards than any other developer nominated as explained by Randy Pitchford, President of Gearbox Software.

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! 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. that night.

Tales from the Borderlands will expand upon the stories of existing characters of the series, as well as introduce new ones. Dan Connors, co-founder and CEO of Telltale Games had the following to say about the partnership with Gearbox Software.

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 story-telling driven by player choice, and characters that people truly care about.

Tales from the Borderlands will be premiering it’s digital release in 2014 on home consoles as well as PC and Mac and Mobile Devices.

What do you guys think about this partnership reveal? Are you excited or worried?
