Gearbox teases a new franchise

Now that Borderlands is, for now, done and dusted, developer Gearbox is moving on to the next big thing.

In a cryptic tweet from CEO Randy Pitchford, remarking on an earlier report from VGC that Take-Two plans to launch a new Gearbox franchise next year, Pitchford seemed to lend credence to the rumours.

We'll have to wait and see what Gearbox comes out with next. Given that their other non-Borderlands titles in the last decade included the awful Aliens Colonial Marines and the somehow even more awful than that Duke Nukem Forever, perhaps a little scepticism is in order before everyone gets on the hype-train for whatever they do next.
