There's some "unfinished business" betweenand the Brothers in Arms series, says studio boss Randy Pitchford. 'Authenticity' is their goal for the next game and they're working on it.
The "limiting factor" for the project is getting 'great folks together' and they're in the process now before they can start elaborating. The new Brothers in Arms is in incubation for the time being.
Let's hope it's not a face-hugging disappointment as the series has a lot of fans.
"I think the next Brothers in Arms game has to be authentic and we have been working on that," Pitchford told. "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."
He continued: "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."
The last we heard much about the WW2 shooter was Brothers in Arms: Furious 4, but the community wasn't feeling it and eventually the Brothers in Arms name was dropped and it became simply Furious 4. Nothing much has become of it except that one of its characters is now in Gearbox's new Battleborn game.
