A recent report revealed that several new games developed by Gearbox have been leaked. A now-deleted LinkedIn post by a former employee at Lost Boys Interactive, a division of Gearbox, mentioned the building of Borderlands 4, Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands 2, and a new Brothers in Arms game using Unreal Engine 4. However, this news comes amid a difficult time for Gearbox as its parent company, Embracer Group, has experienced layoffs and is struggling to find a buyer for Gearbox.
It’s possible that the ongoing restructuring at Embracer Group may lead to some or all of these projects being abandoned. While it’s expected that Borderlands 4 will survive, Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands 2 and the new Brothers in Arms game may face cancellation. This leak is particularly surprising since Gearbox has not officially announced any of these games.
Considering the success of previous games like Borderlands 3 and Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands, it’s understandable that fans of the franchise eagerly anticipate the release of these new games. However, the uncertainty surrounding the fate of these leaked projects adds an air of suspense and speculation to this news.
Despite the challenges that both Gearbox and Embracer Group are currently facing, the gaming community continues to look forward to official announcements and future updates from these developers. With potential new installments in popular franchises such as Borderlands and Brothers in Arms on the horizon, the gaming industry is sure to keep a close eye on any developments that may arise.
