Gearbox intervenes by commenting on the most recent rumors.
In recent days, an alleged indiscretion concerning the development of a spin-off of Borderlands, the same one that would have confirmed the remake of The Last of Us. Also supported by Jeff Grubb of VentureBeat, this rumor finally reached the ears of Gearbox, who decided to comment on the matter.
I am told of rumors that Gearbox is "assisting" or "co-developing" another Borderlands game (or a new spin-off game). These rumors are NOT accurate. Gearbox is lead dev of any future games in the Borderlands franchise (or any Borderlands adjacent games) with no co-development.

“I've been told of rumors that Gearbox is supporting or co-developing another Borderlands title (or a new spin-off). These rumors are NOT accurate, ”Randy Pitchford himself denied on Twitter. The company's CEO added that "Gearbox is the primary developer of any future game in the Borderlands franchise (or any adjacent Borderlands game) without any co-development." This last statement could in particular refer to Grubb, according to whose words Gearbox was only marginally involved in the project.
In short, for the moment it seems that no spin-off on the series is planned. The latest game in the series is Borderlands 3 in 2019 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
