Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands co-developer Lost Boys Interactive is acquired by Gearbox.

Upon acquiring Gearbox, Lost Boys Interactive CEO and Co-Founder Shaun Nivens said, “We founded Lost Boys with the dream of working on products that would be globally recognized and loved. We are incredibly excited to join Gearbox and continue doing what we do. best – creating amazing games that entertain and inspire others.”
Last year, Gearbox itself was acquired by Embracer Group in a deal worth $1.3 billion. The Borderlands studio has not revealed how much it is buying Lost Boys Interactive.
The titles of the next four Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands DLCs have now been revealed, and the names seem to hint at at least one Mirrorverse.
