Borderlands 4, Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands 2, and unannounced Brothers in Arms game leaked by Gearbox employee
A former Gearbox contractor may have leaked that Borderlands 4, a sequel to spin-off Tiny Tina's Wonderlands, and a new unannounced Brothers in Arms game are all in the works.
As reported by Eurogamer, a former studio technical director for Gearbox support studio Lost Boys Interactive mentioned the three projects in a now-deleted LinkedIn update. During a three-month period, the contractor oversaw 66 employees and worked on "Borderlands 4 UE4," "Tiny Tina's Wonderland 2 UE4," and "Brothers in Arms UE4", among other titles.
Gearbox has not announced these projects publicly just yet, but it is expected that the developer is continuing to work on new entries in its most popular franchise, with a Borderlands film also in the works. What is surprising is the mention of Brothers in Arms, its old-school WW2 shooter franchise that hasn't seen a new mainline entry since 2008's Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway and has become somewhat forgotten.
Both Borderlands projects are likely safe, but Brothers in Arms may have been canceled as part of Embracer Group's ongoing restructuring program, which has resulted in over 900 layoffs, multiple studio closures, and the cancellation of a number of unannounced projects. Also, Embracer was reportedly looking to sell Gearbox, but no buyer has yet met the company's asking price.
