Gearbox Software is working on a new Brothers in Arms title, according to company CEO, Randy Pitchford.
"I think the next Brothers in Arms game has to be authentic and we have been working on that," he said to IGN. "I feel we have unfinished business there with both the fiction and the history and I’d like to get into that. I spend a lot of time thinking about it.
Pitchford explains that developement is still in the "incubation" phase, and the company is talking with publishers and collaborators and we'll make an announcement once developement get well underway.
"Sadly it takes a lot of resources, energy and money to do what must be done, so it’s not something I feel I could completely do alone. I need good partners for it, so we’ve been talking to great folks but it’s really putting all that together that’s the limiting factor. Once we put all the partnerships together in terms of publishing, collaborators and creatives, we can talk about it. I feel like I’m on the brink of it, but we’re not quite there yet. Once it happens development will really take off and then sometime after that - if we don’t completely kill ourselves - we’ll announce. But we’re in the incubation phase with the next one there, for sure."
A new Brothers in Arms title, would be a nice change of pace from the futuristic shooters of late, as a revisit of the WWII setting has been a long time coming. Hopefully Gearbox will give the franchise a worthy comeback, and the fans some information sooner rather than later.
We will bring you any new information on the new Brothers in Arms title, as well as Gearbox' other upcoming title, as soon as it becomes available.
