Gearbox Software working on two new original IPs for next-gen

Gearbox Software president Randy Pitchford told a crowd of PAX Prime attendees today that his company is working on two new original games for next-generation platforms. Pitchford didn't divulge any details about those projects, including whether one of them was the missing in action Brothers In Arms spin-off, Furious Four.

Pitchford said in July during an episode of the Nerdist podcast that Gearbox was working on new IP for next-gen and that it had no current-generation games planned for release.

Gearbox fans may be able to get beta access to one of those unannounced next-gen games through a promotion for its upcoming Gearbox Community Day event. The developer's annual community event will be streamed online this year through Twitch and viewers who purchase a "digital bonus pack" will get access to a future closed beta test. The pack also includes a high-def stream of Gearbox Community Day 2013, Shift codes for Borderlands 2 and a free copy of Homeworld HD.

Gearbox Community Day takes place Sept. 14. More information is available at Gearbox's official site.
