Gearbox Software Denies Rumours They're Co-Developing A New Borderlands Game With Another Studio

There's been a few rumblings lately regarding Borderlands. After news spread that Epic Games had spent $146 million on its PC exclusivity, rumours have emerged from Gamereactor, claiming: “A new Borderlands is much closer than you think. Not a numbered one, but what you might call a spin-off.”

Believing this next entry would “deliver something different” to other Borderlands titles, that was backed up by VentureBeat’s Jeff Grubb, who stated: “Gearbox, I believe, is going to have that spin-off of Borderlands that is rumoured and they might not necessarily be developing, but I think they’re involved with those games always, they own part of the IP along with Take-Two.”

Whatever comes next, it sounds like Borderlands fans have plenty to look forward to.
