2K Games and Gearbox Software just announced that the team behind Borderlands 2 is hard at work on Battleborn, a brand new IP which is apparently the most ambitious project of the studio so far. The game is planned for release before the end of fiscal year 2016 (so before March 31 2016) but we wouldn't be surprised if it came out in time for the 2015 holiday season. Trailer and details inside.

2K and Gearbox Software - the creators of the award-winning and best-selling Borderlands franchise - today announced Battleborn(TM), an all-new full-featured triple-A hero-shooter experience for Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation(R)4 computer entertainment system, and Windows PC is in development. The first details and full reveal of Battleborn can be read now exclusively in Game Informer magazine's August issue cover story.
Battleborn is developed by the teams behind the critically acclaimed hybrid role-playing-shooter Borderlands 2, and is an ambitious fusion of genres. The game combines highly-stylized visuals and frenetic first-person shooting, with Gearbox's industry-leading co-operative combat, and an expansive collection of diverse heroes. Battleborn is set in the distant future of an imaginative science-fantasy universe where players experience both a narrative-driven co-operative campaign, as well as competitive multiplayer matches.
"If Borderlands 2 is a shooter-looter, Battleborn is a hero-shooter," said Randy Pitchford, president of Gearbox Software. "As a genre-fused, hobby-grade, co-operative and competitive FPS exploding with eye-popping style and an imaginative universe, Battleborn is the most ambitious video game that Gearbox has ever created."
"Battleborn represents the combined might of the development and publishing teams behind the success of Borderlands 2, which to date has sold-in more than 9-million units worldwide and has become 2K's highest-selling game of all time," said Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K. "The size, scope, and ambition of Battleborn are unlike any other title in 2K's history, and the result is a defining next-gen co-operative experience."

In that short period, EA tried to launch new IP's, but for some reason, they weren't very succesfull. (4 Hours ago)
@Tinks: Dead Space 1 was a good start but with way too much backtracking. Dead Space 2 was better, but was less tension. DS3 was last shot at trying to make it into a profitable franchise. (4 Hours ago)
@KORNdog: That doesn't really make a lot of sense in the context of GTA:O because all of the core content is free, but selling currency is how they make money. (5 Hours ago)
Dead Space 1 and 2 were great I agree. 3 shouldn't have killed that franchise. RIP Visceral (5 Hours ago)
