The Brothers In Arms franchise is a well respected take on the battles of WWII, but the latter games didn’t impress fans as much as the previous ones did. It went so far as the team behind the title scrapped a game after their trailer for it wasn’t well received at all. Now, Gearbox is apparently in the “incubation phase” of creating a new, more authentic, Brothers In Arms game. However, to be clear, they really are in the beginning stages:
“I think the next Brothers in Arms game has to be authentic and we have been working on that,” Randy Pitchford says to IGN. “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.
“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.”
