We knew that Gearbox's next Brothers in Arms title Furious 4 had "evolved," but it wasn't until today at the Inside Gearbox panel at PAX Prime that the Dallas-based studio confirmed that it's being turned into a brand new IP.
Gearbox co-founder and CEO Randy Pitchford said "they [Gearbox] kind of started to go in a place that started to get a little way from what the core of what the Brothers in Arms brand is all about... it needed to be unshackled."
Sadly, no details were released about what this new title will entail, but Pitchford said that the game would be "re-announced" at the upcoming Gearbox Community day on 15th September in Dallas, Texas. We expect to hear more details then.
