Randy Pitchford from Gearbox has been revealing some projects that the firm are planning for the future, and would like to see move forward. One of these seems to be a new Brothers in Arms game. Another mentioned Duke Nukem, is one fans would probably rather him not focus on.
Those who experienced Duke Nukem: Forever will remember how poor it ended up being. Many with it had stayed in the development hell it had languished in for so long before Gearbox got their hands on it.
Brothers in Arms is much more welcomed news though, and talking to IGN at Develop Brighton 2015, Pitchford had this to say:
“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.”
“Sadly it takes a lot of resources, energy and money to do what must be done, so it’s not something I feel I could completely do alone. I need good partners for it, so we’ve been talking to great folks but it’s really putting all that together that’s the limiting factor. Once we put all the partnerships together in terms of publishing, collaborators and creatives, we can talk about it.”
Whether these hopes for another Brothers in Arms will actually lead to anything is questionable, as the way Pitchford talks about it, it is still in the planning stages and will be some time off if it even appears at all.
