Gearbox have been somewhat quiet about their upcoming title Brothers in Arms: Furious 4 for a while now. President and CEO of Gearbox Software, Randy Pitchford, had a few things to say in a recent interview about why they’ve been so quiet about this title, despite it being planned for this year.
According to him, it’s primarily down to just how the title is “evolving and we need to make further changes before we can start talking about it.” So, just what does that mean? It’s no secret that the smash hit, Borderlands, used to have a much more serious artstyle to it before a last minute change that morphed it into the amazingly popular FPS.
It would seem that Gearbox are in a similar place with Brothers in Arms and think that they can make it better with some changes. The problem is that they’re not being clear on just how the game is evolving or what they plan to change in order to suit that evolution.
There’s not much longer for them to sort it out in, either. The game is scheduled to be released between Borderlands 2 and Aliens: Colonial Marines, only giving them a four month gap to account for delays.
Oh well. At least it isn’t cancelled.
