SAN RAFAEL, Calif.,
Dec. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Leading and award-winning developer and publisher of digital entertainment Telltale Games, in collaboration with leading and award-winning developer Gearbox Software, and publisher 2K, announced today their partnership to create an all-new story-driven episodic game series entitled,
'Tales from the Borderlands: A Telltale Games Series', set to premiere digitally in 2014 on home consoles, PC/Mac, and mobile devices.
"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."
' Tales from the Borderlands' will explore and expand on the stories of existing and all-new characters from the world of Pandora, as seen in the critically-acclaimed and best-selling
Borderlands® 2 from Gearbox and 2K.
"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 – a publishing label of Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. – the Borderlands franchise has sold-in more than 15 million units worldwide, won more than 55 editorial awards, and was a breakout original property that invented a new genre, the FPS/RPG hybrid known as "shooter-looter."
