(Cant remember source) but I was just looking for a source right now from the creators and All i got were ill legitimate responses.
So from what i thought i knew, was that ^
But then i remembered (again just off of gut feeling from playing the games over and over)
BL to BL2 is 3 years and the 5 years was from BLTPS to BL3
BL2 to BL3 is 7
and BL2 to BLTPS is 2 years
Ill look for source cause i know in game in bl2 it does say something.
They say many times in BL2 that it takes place five years after BL1. They don’t say exactly when The Pre-Sequel (the Elpis parts) happens in between them, though.
The Lilith DLC in BL2 mentions that it’s been a full year since Mordecai stopped drinking so he can raise Talon, who is hatched very shortly after Jack’s death. All the rest of BL2’s DLC, plus Tales and Athena’s interrogation in TPS, happens within this year.
After the Lilith DLC, it’s another six years and then BL3 starts.
Why does the wiki think Zombie Island isn’t canon? Dr. Ned appears in Robot Revolution (which definitely is canon) and clearly references his prior role as having happened. Bloody Hollow is debatable, but TK’s line about “not wanting to mess with canon” is more about him needing to remain dead in the main game so the side-quest with his niece can make sense.
