Gearbox working on next-gen games

The team behind the wildly popular Borderlands games is working on two games for Xbox One and PS4, according to studio boss Randy Pitchford.

Pitchford confirmed at PAX in Seattle the games are new and original IPs, and that users can gain access to forthcoming beta access at the studio's Community Day later this month.

These new IPs are in addition to other new projects the company is working on, Pitchford said. According to Gamespot furing the panel, Pitchford joked, "Should we announce Borderlands 3?"

Gearbox Software confirmed last year that Brothers in Arms: Furious Four will be reimagined as a new IP.

In order to gain early access to the new titles customers will need to purchase a Community Day Digital Bonus Pack, which offers several including a HD stream and archive access to Community Day proceedings, Homeworld HD and Classic download codes, and a Borderlands 2 Community Day Heads and Skins pack.

The Gearbox Community Day is scheduled for 14 September in Dallas, Texas.

Gearbox's most recent game was Aliens: Colonial Marines, released in February to mostly negative reviews. The studio will be looking to bounce back with its upcoming titles.

The company used its PAX panel to also announce Homeworld: Shipbreakers, its first Homeworld game since the studio acquired THQ last year.

The new game Homeworld: Shipbreakers will be developed by Blackbird Interactive and funded by Gearbox. The title is a rebrand of the former studio's Hardware: Shipbreakers, which was originally an homage to the Homeworld series.

"These guys have been funded by private equity [so far], but it's clear it was going to take many millions of dollars more," Pitchford said.

"We're giving them the brand and the resources to make this happen. Now, these guys are cooking and with the money they have now, they can grow the team," he said.
