One of the side projects we’ve learned about from 2K Games is that they’ve been working to restore Tales From The Borderlands for sale. With Borderlands 3 on the way, it only makes sense for the company to want anything and everything related to the franchise up for sale, just in case some gamers feel like taking a stroll down memory lane. The problem is that Steam, GOG, and other retailers have been pulling the games from digital and physical shelves due to the fact that Telltale Games, the original developers, is now no more and can no longer provide support for the games they once produced that aren’t in the hands of other publishers now. But in a statement to Eurogamer, it appears 2K want to correct that with their IP.
“We are working to get Tales from the Borderlands back up on digital storefronts as soon as possible,” a 2K spokesperson told us. “All prior digital purchases of the game will of course still be honoured and supported.”
That’s good news if they can make it happen. 2K isn’t the only company trying to get the rights to a game made by Telltale, as word came out weeks ago that Marvel is trying to secure the Guardians of the Galaxy game they created, and one can only guess WB Games would like to own the Batman game. But unlike those other titles, 2K knows for a fact theirs has a loyal audience who want to replay it and were hoping to see a second season be made that was always rumored to be in development. We’ll see what the company can pull off before Borderlands 3 is released.
