Uncertainty Arises Over Future of Telltale's Wolf Among Us and Borderlands

In both of the recent Wolf Among Us and Borderlands games, the endings were massive cliffhangers with major mysteries left unsolved. Eurogamer attempted to have these questions answered, but were instead directed to a Reddit discussion around the same issue. The Reddit article was actually aimed at Walking Dead, but players were keen to know what would happen next in these games instead.

When asked about Wolf Among Us:

We have been asked over and over again for some insight into the mystery at the end of the finale for TWAU. Something I've always wanted to admit is that while we do have a clear answer to who was who at the end of that story... we had also agreed to keep it a mystery for the fans to ponder on their own. Definitely fun to see all of the theories pour out, and exciting to pay off our neon-noir story with a femme fatale twist.

Should we ever continue in the world of Fables and The Wolf Among Us... it is generally agreed upon here that we wouldn't continue that storyline directly, and would leave things an open mystery that's better left unanswered....

On Borderlands:

While there are currently no plans for us to continue the story on the Telltale side, we do know that our friends at Gearbox and 2K are hard at work on what's next for the Borderlands universe. We know that also means if anything happens Rhys, Fiona and the gang... the ball is in their court to see whether they will or will not be explored again in any possible future entry into that universe. We're big fans of Borderlands as well, obviously, so here's hoping Tales isn't the last we'll ever see of those characters!

In my opinion, this doesn't really spell doom for either game, just that there is a certain uncertainty where the games will go. The reins might be handed over to another team, but that shouldn't necessitate any sudden fear that these games are at an end.

A VG247 report actually suspects we may get a Wolf Among Us-related announcement at San Diego Comic-Con this week, so here's hoping.

Have you played any of these games since the start? How do you feel about the mysterious endings? Any guesses as to what is in store for us in time to come? Let us know.
