Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford addressed rumors about the disappearance of Brothers in Arms: Furious Four, affirming his studio’s commitment to the project.
In fact, Gearbox has seemingly taken the game in a new direction. Initially, it was a co-op focused game set in World War II, but this may not be the case anymore. Pitchford toldCVG the game is different and continually evolving.
“The game has evolved, I think people are going to be surprised by what they’ll see, and it’s still evolving,” Pitchford said. “One of the reasons why we’re not talking about it now is that it’s evolving and we need to make further changes before we can start talking about it.”
Even though Gearbox is currently not going to discuss the game, they seem excited about what it is becoming.
“I’m looking forward to being able to talk about Brothers in Arms: Furious Four soon,” Pitchford said. “I might come around to talk about Furious Four between the releases of Borderlands 2 and Aliens: Colonial Marines, but I certainly won’t before the release of Borderlands 2.”
Furious Four, expected to be published by Ubisoft, was first showcased at E3 2011. Since then, Internet rumors of the cancellation of the game arose due to a lack of publicity. The game is not cancelled by any means, but it will not be released by 2012 as anticipated last year.
