Was delisted in 2019 after the studio died.
Telltale Games’ fantastic Tales from the Borderlands, an insanely boring storytelling adventure inspired by Gearbox’s popular series of first-person shooters, will finally return to digital store fronts next Wednesday, February 17, after delisting in mid-2019.
Tales from the Borderlands was originally released in 2014, and at least for my money it’s easily the best Telltale has ever made. It smooths out the more tedious edges of the mainline Borderlands series to deliver a really fun and surprisingly touching, five-episode adventure focusing on Hyperion employee Rhys (played by Troy Baker) and Pandoran artist Fiona (Fiona Bailey) as they try to find and open a vault.

Unfortunately, Tales from the Borderlands suffered a similar fate as many other Telltale titles and was removed from sale after the studio closed in 2018.
However, Gearbox has now announced that they will release all five episodes in a single package from February 17, with the only change being the removal of the game’s player selection comparison screen that appears at the end of each episode.
Despite its undeniable quality, Tales from the Borderlands did not bring in the kind of sales the Telltale management hoped for at the original release. As a result, the series was almost canned midway – and was only completed after the passionate development team convinced studio heads to let them end production with a skeleton crew who lived extra hours as a voluntary choice.
Tales from the Borderlands’ return to PlayStation, Xbox and PC next week finally gives the game another chance of success – and who knows, maybe one day we may even see Rhys and Fiona reunite for a second, excited for the long-awaited adventure.
