Is Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands Coming Out On Steam? Here’s Everything You Need To Know

The Borderlands franchise has a huge fan base already established. The players have dedicated their lives to this game creating all sorts of different builds and playstyles and sharing it with the rest of the community.

You can assume that Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands, being a part of the same universe and having similar gameplay, will be attracting the same loyal players of Borderlands. Players who are hooked on the previous entries will be flocking to this iteration. The only sad part is that Gearbox’s exclusivity deal with Epic Store has alienated the Steam players.

Rest assured though as the Steam page for Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands is already up and the release date states it’s coming soon. Although nothing is confirmed and we can only speculate from previous exclusivity deals by the same developers and ballpark the release date to around 6 months to a year after the initial release date.

Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands Release

The newest take on the Borderlands franchise Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands was released on 25th March 2022 on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC where it is only available on Epic Games Store. Sadly there is no confirmed release date by Gearbox or 2K for Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands on Steam owing to the exclusivity deal with Epic Games Store.

Epic Games Store

Since the day it launched the Epic Games Store has been a bane of existence for veteran PC players. At first, the store itself lacks many of the basic features like player reviews that Steam has incorporated and perfected over the years and basically spoiled its users to such high standards.

The most known fact and the reason most players accept Epic Games Store is that it sometimes giveaway amazing games for free and that they have many exclusive deals with developers and/or for games that people were anticipating. Just to get their hands on the free goodies and get to play their favorite games on time people have been bearing EGS.

Epic has been raking in that insane money from Fortnite which has led them to make these absurd and loss-making exclusive deals with major developers and it’s just a power show tactic for them to grab as much market share from Steam which enjoyed a monopoly of sorts over many previous PC gaming generations. Recently in a shareholder announcement, it was revealed that Epic Games Store has made huge losses just to gift these free games and make these exclusive deals.

Some headstrong players have boycotted the use of this platform since the beginning because of its lackluster presentation and experience. They wait for these timed exclusivities to end only to buy the game from Steam where their primary library of games exists.

Since the day Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands has been released on EGS the Steam page for the game has also been up with a Coming Soon release date and you can Add it to your wishlist but there is still no Pre-order option at the current date of writing this article.

Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands website suggests that the game will be coming on “other PC digital storefronts later in 2022“, from this we can at least confirm a release window that will come within 2022. Players, who are eagerly waiting for the game to be played on Steam only, will not be satisfied by this relatively large window and want some other concrete speculation.

Looking at the recent example by Gearbox with Borderlands 3 and its exclusive deal with Epic Games Store, the game was released in September 2019 on EGS and down the line was released on Steam in March 2020 which is 6 months apart.

Considering the above mentioned period as a yardstick we can assume that Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands will be released on Steam in approximately September 2022, do take this date with a grain of salt as it’s just speculation.

Players who have dealt with these kinds of issues in the past have voiced their minds over on Reddit:

Taking the answer to this question, the user is suggesting that Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands will be released after a whole year when all the DLCs are out for the game as EGS is desperate to draw more patrons to its platform. You can see the resentment to EGS in the comments and its all over Reddit.

One positive that we can take out of this situation is that waiting for the game to be released on Steam will iron out all the issues that are prevalent right now and that it will be more optimized. Issues like SHiFT outages and co-op problems will get sorted. Along with this, there will be more stuff added to the game since the release that players will enjoy all at once.

Patience is a virtue! You will be rewarded for it!
