Hey, remember when Gearbox announced that it was working on a new Brothers In Arms game? Albeit one that looked a good deal more cartoonish and gun crazy than previous versions? You'd be forgiven if you didn't, since the first and only trailer for the game debuted last E3 (as in 2011), and Gearbox has gone on to say exactly nothing about the game since then. Given its absence at this year's E3, many assumed that Gearbox had simply quietly shelved the project while focusing on Borderlands 2 and Aliens: Colonial Marines. Turns out that's not true.
"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," he said.
The original trailer showed a version of Brothers In Arms that looked like a cross-breeding of Left 4 Dead, Team Fortress 2, and Inglourious Basterds (second reference today!). What, exactly, Furious 4 has evolved into, Pitchford wouldn't say. He was also clear that we won't be hearing anything about Furious 4 for a little while, or at least not until Borderlands 2 ships this September.
But at least you can rest easy knowing the game hasn't disappeared entirely. Assuming you were ever worried about that to begin with.
