It looks like Gearbox is about to announce that its acclaimed shoot-and-loot FPS franchise Borderlands is going mobile.
An advert pulled from the Borderlands 2 digital guide makes reference to an October release date for Borderlands Legends, a new game in the series "specifically designed for mobile and tablet".
According to the ad (below), this game will focus on the four characters from the the original Borderlands (Mordecai, Lilith, Brick, and Roland), who will have to tackle waves of enemies over randomised missions.
Of course, this is still a Borderlands title, so there will be "thousands" of different weapons to collect, and a total of 36 character skills and powers to upgrade and amplify.
Though Gearbox has remained tight-lipped about an iOS Borderlands adventure, company president Randy Pitchford has gone on record saying that he'd love to see a PS Vita version of the game.
We're hoping for an official announcement of Borderlands Legends sometime this week. We'll keep you posted.
