Borderlands, the RPG-like shooter which went on to sell more than 5 million units, is likely coming to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 as a deluxe remastered edition.

Publishing label 2K Games has yet to officially announce the next-gen update, but a listing on the Australian Classification Board appears to have revealed the publisher’s plans prematurely. Little else can be gathered from the listing, though it does suggest that 2K Australia–which was the principal developer of Borderlands: The pre-Sequel–has been delegated duties to build the port.

Remastered updates of popular last-gen games have become a common feature of the gaming calendar. Tomb Raider Definitive Edition, The Last of Us Remastered, and Grand Theft Auto 5 are some of the most popular re-releases on next-gen systems.

Gearbox Software, the creator of the Borderlands series, recently suggested that it was the comparatively low installed-base of the next-gen consoles that convinced it to ship Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel on last-gen machines only.
