Following the announcement that the TellTale Games brand has been resurrected following its abrupt closure back in 2019, fan interest was high among all of the properties that TellTale was involved with. Given that we've got a new Wolf Among Us game in the works, it looks like another series is making a comeback - at least according to this Tales from the Borderlands sequel leak.
The latest leak came by way of Reddit and speaks to a Redux version of the game. From the video itself, which is split into two parts, it showed just a revival of the base game itself but what was interesting is that it also teased things like commentary and art in addition to "and more" alongside a bonus episode.
The "and more" has fans excited for a potential sequel but what really nailed the point home was that at the end of the teaser, it shows the Redux coming in 2020 but then the 2020 fades just leaving the number 2, which supports the Tales from the Borderlands 2 theory. Could it just be a fancy effect that we're looking too much into? Maybe, but the interest has been there for awhile now.
TellTale Games made carved out the narrative-driven storybook game genre in a big way with major mainstay titles like The Walking Dead, Wolf Among Us, and their entry into the Borderlands franchise. Though not the first company to indulge in this particular brand of storytelling, they certainly made a name for themselves as the kings of this genre - which left a huge vacuum when the doors shut down.
Speaking with ComicBook (via our previous coverage), Borderlands 3 co-lead Sam Winkler mentioned that the Tales narrative still had some juice left in it, something that the team over at Gearbox would very much like to continue. "I would love to pick up where Tales from the Borderlands season 1 left off," he told the site. "There's so many unsolved threads there, and even though we brought some characters in Borderlands 3 - there's still a lot of question marks."
As a huge fan of the humor that the Tales game offered and the very memorable characters, I would love to see Gearbox continue this. Whether in-house or over to the hands of TellTale 2.0, I just want to see some of those characters again - and a chance to remember Rhys in his not-so-evil form that we saw in the Borderlands 3 trailers.
