Furious 4 became Battleborn, but Gearbox plans for a new Brothers in Arms

Like Duke Nukem, it will continue

"Has Gearbox Software dropped Brothers in Arms: Furious 4?" Jordan asked over three years ago. Yes. Furious 4 dropped the Brothers in Arms brand and then morphed into a new game entirely, Battleborn. Hot on the heels of Randy Pitchford's commitment to a new Duke Nukem game (provided someone else actually make it, and also after reiterating that he loved Duke Nukem Forever), Gearbox's head assured IGN there'd be a new Brothers in Arms yet.

"I think the next Brothers in Arms game has to be authentic and we have been working on that," he said. "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." I agree with Pitchford here. The series has literal unfinished business in that game it never finished making, I guess because it was not authentic, which is why it became a different game.

And then Pitchford takes the same tact as with Duke Nukem: Gearbox has really great ideas and it'll be great once someone else actually makes the game.

"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.

"I feel like I'm on the brink of it, but we’re not quite there yet. Once it happens development will really take off and then sometime after that - if we don’t completely kill ourselves - we’ll announce. But we’re in the incubation phase with the next one there, for sure."
