What was the point of the Tech Demo of Unreal Engine 4 for the next Borderlands Game?

Don’t get me wrong, I was excited when I saw the tech demo for the new Unreal Engine 4 but now the dust has settled and the PAX panel has been and gone I am left wondering what even was the point of showing the tech demo at this time. There seems to be no other information to share, no news nor any idea when we are going to hear anything in regards to what is instore for BL3. Was the tech demo purely designed to attract people to the panel at PAX? and if so why… they had nothing really to say in regards to future products. I am completely bewildered by all the events of late. Is Borderlands 3 actually in development or are we possibly going to get some BB/BL hybrid as the next product. The details around the next Borderlands game seems so vague that I am starting to wonder if the next install is actually going to be along the lines of what people expect or something tragically different again. Sigh.
