Telltale’s episodic adventure game might be headed to the new consoles.
Telltale Games had a pretty erratic track record with their releases in their final years before shutting down, but one game that was a highlight from their output was Tales from the Borderlands. Receiving strong reception for its writing and characters from series fans and newcomers alike, Tales from the Borderlands is by far one of the studio’s best games. And now, it seems it could be headed to the newer consoles as well.
As pointed out by Gematsu on Twitter, Tales from the Borderlands has been handed an age rating by PEGI (the European certifications board) for the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S. Ports of the game for new consoles have not been officially announced, of course, but a PEGI certification would suggest that that announcement might be coming soon.
Multiple rumours last year suggested that a sequel to Tales from the Borderlands was also in the works, and if that is indeed true (of which there is honestly no guarantee), it’s possible that the first game might be getting a re-release to drum up some hype. Either way, take this with a grain of salt until we get an official announcement.
In the meantime, there are other things coming from reformed Telltale Games that have been officially confirmed. The Wolf Among Us 2 arrives later this year, and unlike its predecessor, it won’t be releasing in episodic fashion. Read more on that through here.
Here's something that went unnoticed: PEGI rated Tales from the @Borderlands for PS5, Xbox Series, and PC back in December. @2K @GearboxOfficial @telltalegames what're ya waiting for? pic.twitter.com/AUhVj5vTxh
