After having removed it from digital storefronts 2K Games has announced that it is taking steps towards completely shutting down Battleborn servers by 2021.
What started as a joke soon became a sudden realization. Battleborn was dead in the water. Releasing alongside Overwatch, Gearbox Software's arena shooter/moba hybrid couldn't fend of Blizzard's FPS entrance despite years of putting out big-name shooters like Borderlands and Brothers in Arms.
Remaining adamant on their plans to keep Battleborn a pay-to-play FPS experience, Gearbox isn't slowing down with their dreams. There's big changes coming real soon.
There's always a lot going on at Gearbox Softworks. Whether its media drama, praise or speculation, the spotlight is seemingly never off Randy Pitchford and his team. So with him dropping a little hint of things to come, the media is rightfully on his case with the healthy dose of speculation.
