Pitchford: Brothers in Arms announcement “very soon”

Thursday, 12th May 2011 09:59 GMT By Johnny Cullen

Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford has confirmed that an announcement on the developer’s next iteration of Brothers in Arms is coming “very soon.”

“We absolutely love the Brothers in Arms series and the next game in the series is currently in development and expect to see and hear about it all very soon,” Pitchford told the amazingly-named XG247 at last night’s BAFTA showcase of Duke Nukem Forever.

Gearbox confirmed back at PAX in Seattle last year that a new iteration of Brothers in Arms was in development, but not much else.

The last title in the series, published by Ubisoft, was Hells Highway back in 2008.

Since then, Gearbox has been working on Borderlands and multiple packs of DLC, as well as bringing back Duke Nukem Forever from the brink. It also has Aliens: Colonial Marines from Sega and various other secret projects in development, one of which is thought to be Borderlands 2.

Watch for E3, innit.

    A Brothers in Arms set in Afghanistan or some fictional country would be exciting.

    Now that I think about it, Brothers in Arms is probably still the only World War II video game series left in the world left. I gotta see the Battle of the Bulge at least. Even if brought into modern times, it’d still be fun. :D

    Oh and this time, do some proper work on the facial animation, please. This was the only thing i didn’t like about the last game.

    Fucking badass.

    I hope they go Korea. That would be an original turn. I loved all the previous games, even if they were all very “basic MOUT”.

    As much as I like Gearbox, BiA has never really impressed me so I find that the people behind borderlands are wasting their potential with it.

    YoungZero, you have no clue! Turning BiA to a modern afghan setting would kill the franchise. BiA is the only WWII series that hasn’t sold out to all this Modern Warfare crap!.. btw.. thankyou very much Infinity Award for the Arcade shooters!.. cos’ that’s all they are.. they have no Multiplayer depth!”
    However Gearbox, you really gotta work on your Multiplayer, I have to say you always get the story line spot on, its intense, and exciting I love playing them!
    Please don’t give into the pressure of making modern crap!…

    Thanks

    @Hunam they must have ready your comment because they decided to make a shitty spin-off mostly based upon borderlands and/or those old super hero comics from the 1960s
