Gearbox has put quite a lot of resources into developing Battleborn. More so than Borderlands 1 and 2 combined.
At present, there are 300 members working at Gearbox, and around 80% are working on the online team-based shooter, he said.
Pitchford also said in the podcast the idea for Battleborn came from him wanting to play a Jedi Knight in game fighting alongside Master Chief and Gandalf.
Other projects are in the works at the studio, some of which are in pre-production. One of these is the Brothers in Arms title which Pitchford said in 2013 would be an “authentic” period shooter like previous titles.
If you head through the link to Polygon you can hear the entire podcast.
Gearbox will release Battleborn on May 3 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Thanks, Game Watcher.
