Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands is “a new franchise” for Gearbox, more “experiences” already in development – Effinate Games

When Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands first came out earlier this year, it proved to be a fun fantasy romp that differed from the tabletop RPG-flavored Borderlands. Since its launch, it has been very successful in the sales department, receiving a handful of DLC packs. As it turns out, the gearbox won’t stop there.

Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford said the same thing during Embracer Group’s annual general meeting, that Embracer was the holding company that bought Gearbox in early 2021. “Wonderlands shattered all of our target expectations, both critically and commercially,” declared Pitchford, as transcribed by Gearbox. VGC. “We now clearly have a new franchise on our hands, with future experiences already under development at Gearbox.”

It’s no surprise to hear that more Borderlands-related stuff is on the way at Gearbox, but fans might not have expected more Wonderlands specifically. It’s not clear if these “future experiences” will be additional DLC or full-fledged sequels, but there’s more Tiny Tina in the future one way or another.

So far, Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands has received four DLC packs since launch: Coiled Captors, Glutton’s Gamble, Molten Mirrors, and Shattered Spectreglass. Each one added additional quests and legendary weapons to the game’s loot pool. All of these were included in the game’s season pass, but there’s nothing stopping Gearbox from creating a second year pass that gives access to another wave of DLC.

Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands was originally only available on PC through the Epic Games Store, but it made its way to Steam a few months after launch. Expanding the availability of the game certainly played a role in the game’s success. In addition to PC, it can be played on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S and Xbox One, with full crossplay supported across all platforms. Its success has paid off at Gearbox, allowing the company to make acquisitions of its own: it acquired Call of Duty and PUBG support studio Lost Boys Interactive earlier this year after the team lent its talents to the development of Wonderland .
