‘It needs to be authentic, and that takes time.’
Gearbox’s Randy Pitchford has confirmed that his company’s classic franchise, Brothers in Arms, is still due to get a real sequel on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One- so far, the only impediment to progress is that the development of what Pitchford terms an ‘authentic’ sequel takes time.
“I think the next Brothers in Arms game has to be authentic and we have been working on that,” he said at Develop. “I feel we have unfinished business there with both the fiction and the history and I’d like to get into that.
“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.”
He did confirm that he would be talking about the game soon- potentially once the development partners had been decided.
“I feel like I’m on the brink of it, but we’re not quite there yet,” he added. “But we’re in the incubation phase with the next one there, for sure.”
