If you watched this year’s E3 you must have noticed that some Ubisoft IPs were missing from the show, one of them being Brothers in Arms: Furious 4.
Well yesterday, Gearbox Software president Randy Pitchford announced that the game will be shedding its Brothers in Arms legacy to be re-imagined into an all-new IP. The news came at a PAX panel reported on by Polygon in which Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford said:
The game that was announced as Brothers In Arms: Furious 4 has evolved, […][the developers]pushed the gameplay loop, they got into a place that got away from the core […]it’s evolved even farther, and it needed to be unshackled [from the brand].
Pitchford confirmed the upcoming title will be an all-new IP, revealing more details about the new game will be made public at Gearbox’s upcoming community day in Dallas, Texas on September 15.
Brothers in Arms: Furious 4 was meant to be a thematic and aesthetic diversion from the World War II game series. The game was set to take place during World War II following a band of four soldiers chasing Hitler. But now, it’s all gone for something new.
