Gearbox Software, the developer behind Borderlands and Brothers in Arms, has announced plans for E3 2021, and it includes a 30-minute broadcast that could be where the studio's rumored Wonderlands game is shown off. The studio, which also operates a publishing division, announced its plans on Monday, and rumor has it that the mysterious game is actually a spin-off of the Borderlands series.

The Texas-based studio behind the Borderlands series announced that a "segment" of Saturday's E3 2021 broadcast will be dedicated to Gearbox. During this presentation, Gearbox will share "everything that Gearbox has been busy getting its hands into." The broadcast begins at 2 PM PT / 5 PM ET on June 12, and you can see more stream times below. Like E3's other programming, the broadcast will be available on YouTube, Twitch, and other streaming sources, including here at GameSpot.

Start Time

  • 2 PM PT
  • 5 PM ET
  • 10 PM BST
  • 7 AM AEST (Sunday, June 13)

What To Expect

According to a tweet from Gearbox, the event will be hosted by Gearbox boss Randy Pitchford. The executive has recently been spending time in Budapest for the Borderlands movie. He'll probably also do a magic trick or something.

Geoff Keighley's Summer Game Fest Kick Off showcase on June 10 officially revealed Tiny Tina's Wonderlands, a new spin-off game focused on the fan-favorite supporting character. It's fantasy-focused and isn't considered part of the Borderlands series.

Gearbox is now owned by Embracer Group. As part of the sale, Gearbox has said it may be working on a new IP that could shake things up like Borderlands did years ago. Gearbox is also known for franchises like Brothers in Arms and Duke Nukem, though nothing so far has suggested new entries in those franchises might be revealed at E3.

Outside of its own game development, Gearbox runs a publishing division that puts out games in the Homeworld franchise, among others, so there is no telling what the company might have in store for E3.
