What is the Tales from the Borderlands Season 2 release date? Everyone’s asking that question, and the short answer is a guesstimate for the end of 2016 or alongside Telltale’s Game of Thrones Season 2 in the 2016-2017 period. Now let’s go over these rumors and we’ll update this page once it gets confirmed! – Note that similar to The Wolf Among Us the biggest hint we’re actually getting a Season 2 is the cliffhanger that concluded Season 1’s open ending!
So please share your Season 2 ideas in the comments!
Take a look at how the final episode of Season 1 plays out up to the ending here:
We are guesstimating Q4 2016-2017 as the release period of Season 2’s first episode!
Why? Because Season 1 made its debut in late November 2014 and it took a full eleven months to wrap up its 5-episode-season. Since the studio is working on so many point-and-click graphic adventure games at the same time (4 series at present, full list at the bottom of this page). As a result we expect the developers to take a little more time to work on the first few episodes of Season 2, so that they won’t have to rush them out the door; with more preparation having been done before the first episode debuts on a tentative November-December period one (or two) year(s) from the conclusion of its first season. This would mean Season 2 gets to keep the same schedule as Season 1, which is what most Telltale series seem to aim for. Delays notwithstanding.

What are the hints for Season 2?
Season 1 Open Ending:
At the end of the Season 1 Finale “Episode 5: The Vault of the Traveler”, Rhys and Fiona become true Vault Hunters as they enter their first Vault.
After climbing the long floating, lighted stairs they reach the Vault Treasure. As they both open the Vault Treasure at the same time a bright white light consumes the entire Vault and when it dissipates the opened Vault Treasure is still there, but Rhys and Fiona have both disappeared! Then the game-ending credits start to roll.
Presumably Rhys and Fiona have been teleported elsewhere, but where!?!?
Quotes from the developers:
Telltale’s Director of Creative Communications, Job Stauffer, was interviewed at E3 2015 and revealed some new info about what series are in production right now.
“We just try really hard to try and get something that hopefully anyone will enjoy or hopefully like and wanna play.
I think we’re committed to quite a lot.”
From the sounds of it, sadly Telltale seem to be prioritizing the popular names in their lineup, but Tales from the Borderlands could go into production next year. We may end up having to wait far into 2016 for the next The Walking Dead season, hence it may be even longer for Tales from the Borderlands (could be at the end of 2017; two years from the season one conclusion).
But there is hope, since Telltale admitted at E3 2015 to having several projects in the works that are unannounced as of yet. At the very least it’s a consideration for them to continue after they’ve finished some other big brand projects like The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones. Yet at the same time, the studio is rapidly growing to meet fan demand for more of everything Telltale.

Update: Any future project updates will be added in this section.
