Gearbox and Embracer Group seem to be exceptionally pleased with the commercial performance of Tiny Tina's Wonderlands. In a call with Embracer investors held on Wednesday (and documented by the folks at Video Games Chronicle), Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford offered some insight on how the company's tabletop fantasy-flavored spinoff of the Borderlands series is performing.Pitchford called the release of Tiny Tina's Wonderlands "a major victory" for the company, and commented that "Wonderlands shattered all of our target expectations, both critically and commercially." He said that the franchise has established a "beachhead," and that more experiences are in development.

Neither Gearbox nor Embracer shared any specific sales numbers for Tiny Tina's Wonderlands, but Pitchford did say both companies are reaping the "financial rewards" of its success.

Pitchford said that more "experiences" for the series are already in development.That doesn't mean Gearbox is done with the Borderlands name (or franchise) for the moment.

In just a couple of months, the company will release a follow-up to the critically acclaimed Tales from the Borderlands originally developed by Telltale Games.
