Gearbox Software President and CEO Randy Pitchford has revealed that a new Brothers in Arms title is in early development. He spoke to IGN about finding creative and publishing partners to get the game past its “incubation phase”.

“I think the next Brothers in Arms game has to be authentic and we have been working on that,” he says. “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.”

Gearbox Software’s last game in the franchise was Brothers in Arms: Hell’s Highway for the PS3, 360, and PC alongside a Wii game titled Brother’s in Arms: Double Time. Since then we’ve only seen two mobile games on iOS and Android developed by Gameloft.

As for Brothers in Arms: Furious 4, the spin-off game announced at E3 2011, Pitchford has suggested that they re-branded and formed it into their upcoming team-based shooter Battleborn.

l love to play games and write stuff about them. I can't play something and not tell anyone how I feel about it. Call it a sickness, because it is.
