Developer and publisher Telltale Games, in collaboration with developer Gearbox Software and publisher 2K, have announced a partnership to create a story-driven episodic game series titled “Tales from the Borderlands: A Telltale Games Series”
The series will launch digitally on consoles, PC/Mac, and mobile devices in 2014. It will feature existing and new characters from 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. “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.”
“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,” said Randy Pitchford, President of Gearbox Software. “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.”
Developed by Gearbox Software, and published by 2K, the FPS/RPG hybrid Borderlands franchise has sold-in more than 15 million units worldwide, won more than 55 editorial awards.
