Those retailers have been jumping the gun again, as a listing has appeared for New Tales from the Borderlands from Gearbox.

The listing was spotted on Amazon by Wario64 (and Nibellion) on Twitter. It included box art and a description, as well as a release date for October. However, the listing was removed again soon after.

Gearbox are yet to comment on the leak, but it’s believed the game will be another to turn up at next week’s Gamescom event.

New Tales from the Borderlands – predicted release date

According to the listing, the New Tales from the Borderlands will land on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC on October 21.

As neither 2K nor Gearbox have commented on the listing at the time of writing, this could change. We’ve not actually seen anything of the game since Gearbox announced it, so we’re not sure how far it is along.

However, we’ve also very little to doubt that date either as Gearbox has previously promised it’d release later this year. We’ll know more, presumably, after whatever the company plans to show off at Gamescom. For now, we’ll assume the date is correct unless told otherwise.

Gearbox first announced it was working on a Tales from the Borderlands sequel back in April. Development duties are being handled in-house by Gearbox this time. (The previous entry was the work of Telltale Games.)

New Tales from the Borderlands – characters, story and more

At the time of writing, we know very little about the new game’s story. However, it doesn’t look like we’ll be checking back in on the first game’s heroes – Rhys and Fiona.

Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford claimed the new game would follow “all new characters and stories” in the Borderlands universe.

We’re also pretty sure New Tales from the Borderlands won’t be an episodic release. The listing itself seemed to indicate a full priced game, and a boxed release right away just about cements that fact.

The last outing for the Borderlands series was spin-off Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands, which arrived back in March of this year.
