What does an Xbox One/PlayStation 4 game from acclaimed Borderlands developer Gearbox Software look like? It might not be long before we find out. Writing on Twitter recently, Gearbox Software president Randy Pitchford teased that we might get to see one of the studio's new projects as early as later this year.

"We're working on next-gen. Platforms TBD," Pitchford said to a fan who asked when the developer would show off an Xbox One game. "We'll probably announce something later this year."

During a panel at PAX Prime last year, Pitchford revealed that Gearbox Software was working on two new IPs for Xbox One/PS4 in addition to other unannounced projects. The studio confirmed in 2012 that Brothers in Arms: Furious 4 had been reimagined as a new IP, but that still leaves (at least) one more to be announced.

Borderlands 3 is not in development, Pitchford says, but Gearbox Software is collaborating with The Walking Dead developer Telltale Games on an adventure game called Tales from the Borderlands.

Next week in Boston, Mass. during PAX East 2014, Gearbox Software will hold its annual "Inside Gearbox Software" panel. As part of this presentation, Pitchford and other Gearbox Software executives and writers will "chat more about Borderlands and Homeworld!" Gearbox Software acquired the Homeworld IP from THQ during its bankruptcy auction.

Attendees can also expect to enjoy "all the great surprises" from Gearbox Software during the panel, to be held Sunday, April 13 starting at 10:30 a.m. EDT. GameSpot will be in attendance.
