Remember Brothers in Arms? Gearbox Software’s miltiary first-person shooter that was released way back in the early 2000’s when military FPS’ was a thing? While there were games released under the franchise name for mobile devices, the franchise has, for all intents and purposes, been dormant when it comes to mainline releases. But a recent comment from Gearbox hints that a new Brothers in Arms game might be coming our way soon.
In an interview discussing cancelled title “Furious 4,” Gearbox Software Producer Randy Varnell was asked about the dormant IP, and Varnell’s response, while not definite, did give a glimmer of hope.
It just feels like the whole Brothers in Arms IP has just kind of been floating out there ever since.
Randy Varnell: It has and it’s something we’re very aware of at Gearbox. I can’t say anything, but we would love to do something else there.
With Borderlands 3 already out the door, could Gearbox Software be working on a new Brothers in Arms game next? Franchise fans would certainly hope so.
For reference, the last Brothers in Arms game released was Brothers in Arms 3: Sons of War for iOS, and Android, released back in 2014. As for the mainline entry, the last one we got was Brothers in Arms: Hell’s Highway, which was released for the PS3, Xbox 360, and PC, way back in 2008.
Would you want a new Brothers in Arms game or has the franchise remained dormant far too long to make a comeback?
