Brothers in Arms WW2 Return Planned?

It's possible Gearbox Software is returning to the World War II setting they first explored with their Brothers in Arms series (thanks PSU). Responding to a tweet from Rami Ismail of Vlambeer about indications that Call of Duty will return to World War II, Randy Pitchford tweets: "You're going to hate something we're doing, then." Interestingly, in another tweet, Randy takes what he seems to feel is the blame for the CoD series, saying, "Call of Duty is actually my fault. First sold BiA to ATVI as 'Wargame' with 'In war, no one fights alone' as pitch line."

This should be the Gearbox motto. I'm more or less convinced that they got very, very, very lucky with Borderlands.

Lucky? Or maybe they were just "inspired"

Gearbox just keeps getting "lucky"

The first BiA game was pretty fun. Good experience.

By the time they drove the series into the ground and salted the earth where it lay, I lost interest.

Pitchford really needs to STFU. He can't help but to say something incredibly stupid every time he opens his mouth. I absolutely love the Borderlands series but I am under no illusions that Pitchford is anything other than a charlatan con man.

Randy Pitchford invented World War II, and World War III is currently in development by Gearbox.

If Randy Pitchford said the sky is blue I'd presume it might not be...

Maybe he'll tell us again about how he and Gabe gambled for the name "Valve". https://www.engadget.com/2009/08/17/whats-in-a-name-gearbox-software/


Only he would have the gall to try take credit for one of the most successful franchises ever (if not the most).

We'll just pretend we all live is the Pitchford Universe, where Medal of Honor doesn't exist, nor the people and studios behind it, or you know, facts.

Who cares about Gearbox and CoD, Battalion 1944 will be better then both.
