Recently, Gearbox boss Randy Pitchford clarified that there is a distinction between what he called the Borderlands Cinematic Universe and the Borderlands Video Game Universe.

"We are authentic to characters, tone and style, but allow for independent storylines. The mediums are not the same, so the content should not be bound to the same rules," he said.

Pitchford also touched on the subject of whether or not the Borderlands movie is canon. It is canon, but only to the cinematic universe of Borderlands, he clarified.

"The movie is canon to the cinematic universe. The games are canon to the video game universe. There are parallels between them, but also differences. It's okay. Consider how Marvel has handled movies versus comic books for reference if this is hard for you to understand," he said on Twitter.

Filming on the Borderlands movie is expected to begin soon in Budapest, if it hasn't already. No release date has been set for the film yet.
