Brothers in Arms Furious Four dead, new IP born
It turns out Gearbox had a very good reason for letting the Brothers in Arms: Furious 4 trademark lapse: the name is dead. Development on the game continues, but Gearbox announced during a PAX panel that Furious 4 has become so different from the Brothers in Arms franchise that it has become a new IP entirely, Kotaku reports. Apparently that's what Randy Pitchford meant back in July, when he noted that the game had "evolved."

Further information about the game, including minor details like a name and release window, will have to wait for another announcement from Gearbox.
