We hope you've not been anticipating the next Brothers in Arms game too much — the title once known as Brothers in Arms: Furious 4 will now be released as a new IP separate to the series.

At PAX Prime, Gearbox Software president Randy Pitchford told attendees of his Inside Gearbox Software panel that the game, originally announced at E3 2011 but unseen since, moved "away from the core" of the Brothers in Arms series and "needed to be unshackled".

"The game that was announced as Brothers In Arms: Furious 4 has evolved. [...] I wanted to let everyone know that that game's no longer going to be a Brothers In Arms game. It's going to be an all-new IP."

The mysterious new title is due to be re-revealed by the end of the year.
