During yesterday’s Embracer Group annual general meeting, Pitchford talked about how successful Wonderlands had been, saying that it “shattered all” of Gearbox’s critical and commercial expectations. While this will no doubt mean Gearbox and its parent company Embracer will see some extra cash come rolling in, the CEO also confirmed that there was more Wonderlands-related content to come, saying:
“I’m thrilled to report that, in addition to great financial rewards from this victory that will be coming our way in the coming quarters, we have established a firm beachhead and we now clearly have a new franchise on our hands, with future experiences already under development at Gearbox.”
It’s unclear what “future experiences” are already being developed. It could be a large, new paid expansion for Wonderlands or a full-on sequel. Or maybe both!

For Embracer, this is some much-needed good news as another one of its studios, Volition, didn’t have nearly as much success with its Saints Row reboot. While I personally enjoyed the game, most other folks didn’t, and even Embracer’s CEO seemed disappointed by its reception and sales.
