There’s A New IP Coming From Gearbox For Next-Gen, But First More DLC
Many Borderlands 2 players, myself included, have been thriving off all the additional and extremely fun content Gearbox have been releasing over the course of the Borderlands 2 Season Pass. Just last week the fourth and final expansion, Assault on Dragon’s Keep, was released, bringing about an end to the first season pass offered up by Gearbox. I saw first because Randy Pitchford, head honcho at Gearbox, has promised that they’re not done just yet.
In an interview on the Nerdist podcast, Randy spoke about the future of Borderlands 2, and how Gearbox is not quite done with it.

“We did a Season Pass for Borderlands 2, and the Season Pass was like, ‘hey, if you buy the Season Pass we’re going to be doing four campaign DLCs, but you can get all four of them for the price of three if you buy upfront.’ So everyone has this expectation that those would be the four DLCs and then that’s it. We’re going to do more. We’re going to do some other things. We don’t have details yet about it exactly.”
“I’m not ready to announce what other things are” but that the recently-released Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep “won’t be the end of it.” We’ve got more stuff in the hopper that we’re planning and that we’re getting pretty excited about. So if you are a Borderlands fan, you don’t have to be afraid that that’s the end of it.”
With all this new DLC in the pipeline, Pitchford was question about the possibility of a new games for the next-generation of consoles, to which he replied.
“We are building an original IP for the next generation that we’ll announce sometime later. Obviously we have Borderlands, we’ve got Brothers in Arms, we’ve got Duke Nukem and we acquired Homeworld recently. So we have all of those great brands, but we’re actually creating some new things that we’ll announce. So that will be something to look forward to.”
Gearbox has always done better when it comes to new IP’s rather than trying to resurrect existing ones, so the promise of something new is very exciting. When they’ll choose to finally show it off is a different story entirely however.
