Furious Four has morphed into a brand new IP says Gearbox boss

The game is no longer a Band Of Brothers spin-off

Gearbox's Randy Pitchford has given a bit more of an indication of what has happened to their missing WWII shooter Furious Four.

The studio boss explained that the original concept of the Furious Four didn't really gel with what they were aiming for with the Brothers In Arms series so they are working it up into an IP all of its own that is “totally different” from the game they revealed at E3 in 2011.

"We love the game design loop,” Pitchford began, “and we didn't think that the game design loop was the perfect fit for the Brothers in Arms brand, so we let those guys go nuts with game design. Wherever that leads you, don't worry about the franchise. It morphed into something that's completely unrecognizable. So at some point we'll talk about that."

He added, "The team and the software and the design elements, all of that — I think it's probably best, at this stage, to not even ... to just assume that the idea of what Brothers in Arms: Furious Four was, that doesn't exist. We let the game evolve into something totally different. It'll be a brand new IP. It's become a whole new game, which we'll announce when we're ready."
