The Next Borderlands May Arrive Sooner Than You Think

There doesn't seem to be any word on when "Borderlands 4" may be announced by Gearbox but that doesn't mean fans won't have some opportunities to return to the franchise in the near future. It's been reported that a "Borderlands" film is currently in the works with Eli Roth set to direct. Further, it was just revealed that a new "Borderlands" game will arrive in just a couple short months.


It seems Amazon accidentally leaked the information for the upcoming sequel to "Tales from the Borderlands" by creating listings for the game with a release date of October 21. The listings have since been removed but not before Twitter user Warrior64 spotted and reported on them. The news was first picked up by Push Square and now it seems the cat is well and truly out of the bag.

The new "Tales from the Borderlands" was first announced earlier this year and had fans divided. Some were excited to see a revival of the spinoff series under Gearbox after the unfortunate closure of Telltale Games, while others felt Gearbox should stick to the main series. At any rate, gamers won't have to wait long to see how Gearbox handles a "Borderlands" entry that diverges from its usual FPS focus.


New Tales from the Borderlands details revealed by Amazon

While the Amazon listings are gone, Push Square managed to grab a synopsis of the game while they were still up. The description offers a preview of what to expect from the story this October.

"Take a stand against ruthless corporate overlords in this narrative-driven adventure," the listing stated. "Within the perpetually war-torn metropolis of Promethea, you'll control Anu, Octavio, and Fran on the worst day of their lives. Help these three lovable losers as they endeavor to change the world (and maybe even save it). Face down a planetary invasion, vicious vault monster, and cold-hearted capitalist in this cinematic thrill ride where what happens next is up to you."


The leak marks the second in as many weeks by Amazon that revealed details about a game before its debuts. On August 12, Amazon listings were part of a series of leaks that had "Alone in the Dark" fans going wild ahead of the official reveal of the "Alone in the Dark" remake.
