Borderlands Movie Is Not Set In The Same Universe As The Video Game

Posted: 04/22/2021 in Screen Rant Articles


The upcoming Borderlands movie will not take place in the same universe as the video game. Due to the incredible storytelling in the source material, many fans had hoped that the movie might pick up where Borderlands 3 had left off, or at the very least tell a story set in between the events of the games. But it seems the movie will instead be the start of a whole new story set in an alternate universe, which is usually how it goes for adaptations.

The original Borderlands game was created by development studio Gearbox Software and released by 2K Games in 2009. The game’s space-western setting, co-op play, and dark humor were met with commercial and critical success. Soon enough, the franchise expanded to include four other titles, Borderlands 2 in 2012, Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel in 2014, and Borderlands 3 in 2019, with another spin-off game released by TellTale Games in 2014 called Tales from the Borderlands. The series has become one of the best-selling video game franchises of all time, and it was no surprise when Lionsgate Studios announced a film adaptation in 2015.
