According to Amazon, the game is officially titled ‘New Tales from the Borderlands’.
The retailer says it will be released for Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, PS5 and Switch on October 21, 2022, when it will presumably be made available for PC too.

Gearbox announced in April that it was developing an “all new Tales from the Borderlands adventure” for release in 2022. It said more details would be shared this summer, and a Gamescom reveal next week now appears likely.
Released in 2014 and developed by Telltale Games, the original Tales from the Borderlands is a five-part episodic game set on Pandora between the events of Borderlands 2 and Borderlands 3.
Take-Two publishing label 2K said this month that the Borderlands franchise had shipped over 75 million units.
2012’s Borderlands 2 is its top-selling title with over 26 million copies shipped, while 2019’s Borderlands 3 is its fastest selling game with more than 15 million copies shipped.
Saber Interactive owner Embracer Group acquired Texas-based Gearbox last year in a deal that could rise to $1.4 billion.
Following the acquisition announcement, 2K said it would continue to work with Gearbox on the Borderlands franchise and hinted at collaborations on other projects too.
In April, Gearbox announced plans to acquire US-based studio Lost Boys Interactive, which co-developed the then-recently released Borderlands spin-off Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands.
