Gearbox is working on new IP for next-gen consoles

9 July 2013

The developer behind the Borderlands franchise is working on a new IP for next-generation consoles.

Speaking on the latest Nerdist podcast, Gearbox head honcho Randy Pitchford briefly mentioned its plans to pursue new IP, though didn’t divulge any specific details beyond that. Perhaps a new shooter? It would certainly fit in with Gearbox’s previous works this generation.

Elsewhere, Pitchford confirmed that the company is prepping fresh DLC for Borderlands 2, despite the fact that all Season Pass expansion have been released.

"Everyone was under the expectations that those would be the four DLC's and that's it," he said. "We are going to do more, we are going to do some other things. I don't have details exactly of it yet cause were not ready to announce what the other things are.

"We got more stuff in the hopper that we're planning and getting pretty excited about. So if you're a Borderlands 2 fan you don't have to be afraid that that's the end of it."

Gearbox has had a largely brilliant track record on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, with the only blemish on its current-generation career being the shoddy shooter Aliens: Colonial Marines. However, most of the work on that game was handled by another studio, if we are to believe reports.
