Back in the 2000s, when Call of Duty and Battlefield were just fledgling franchises, they competed with several other shooters.

Among them was Gearbox Software's Brothers in Arms games, which started in 2005 and went on to spawn multiple sequels.

The last mainline installment was released in 2008. 

Fast forward to more than a decade later and it appears that the series' fourth mainline installment is finally in the works.

Gearbox Software's CEO Randy Pitchford revealed that the studio's next title is a Brothers in Arms game.

Surprisingly enough, it's taken nearly half a year for this information to go around.

The podcast where it was announced was originally made public in April.

Then again, it wasn't until recently that the podcast made its way to YouTube. 

With that said, a little over a decade is a long time for the squad-based FPS series.

However, Pitchford's words do suggest that the game is progressing well.

In the meantime, Gearbox fans can look forward to the Borderlands spin-off title, Tiny Tina's Wonderlands.

The D&D-like game was first announced earlier this year.

The game's March 22, 2022 release date was later confirmed during Sony's September PlayStation Showcase.

There's also a Borderlands movie set to release in the future.

The live-action remake of Gearbox's popular shooter franchise features an ensemble cast.
