New Brothers in Arms Title Being Developed at Gearbox, Still in The “Incubation Phase”
Speaking to IGN at Develop in Brighton, Gearbox Software President Randy Pitchford revealed that they’re working on a new “authentic” Brothers in Arms title, though he didn’t say for which platforms.
Noting that it’s still in the “incubation phase” and they’re “not quite there yet,” Pitchford says he expects development to really take off once it is there. This involves finding all the right partners in terms of publishing, collaborators, and creatives, which they’ve been talking to. Then – “if we don’t completely kill ourselves” – they’ll announce the game sometime afterwards.
He also said:
I think the next Brothers in Arms game has to be authentic and we have been working on that. 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.
Back in March, Gearbox’s Mikey Neumann and voice actor Troy Baker hinted at a potential return to the Brothers in Arms franchise.
