Gearbox Teases Project 1v1

Gearbox reveals a project codenamed Project 1v1, saying this is "top-secret," but writing about it on a new Project 1v1 website. They promise closed technical testing this summer for a game that combines first-person combat and collectible card strategy. Here's word:

Project 1v1 is the code name for Gearbox's top-secret, in-development, competitive first-person shooter that combines the action of fast-paced 1v1 first-person combat with the metagame strategy of a collectible card game.

Project 1v1 will be holding a short Closed Technical Test this summer. We are looking for a limited number of players to test the online infrastructure and learn what players like you think about the game in order to inform and influence future development. The test will be held on North American servers, so international players may experience decreased performance.

Takes over failed game project - Duke Nukem... game bombs

You're not wrong about Gearbox in general but as depressing as it is, Duke Nukem Forever sold well and made money for both Gearbox and 2K.

I liked Duke Forever... It was one of the best shooters released that year. It was a slow year though...

If that "top secret" project isn't Homeworld 3, I have zero fucks to give.

FPS with card based metagame? Theoretically this could be good, Hand of Fate is pretty damned awesome, and that was made with almost no budget, compared to what Gearbox will be able to spend.

Still, it's Gearbox, I'm sure they will put in annoying mechanics/loot boxes/excessive grinding/trash weapons/whatever and ruin it.

PvP and collectible cards? They should have called it Fail & Fail. Not even for free, Gearbox.  
They're waiting for you, Gabe, in the test chamber!

Typically, companies stick to what they are good at (ie: borderlands)

Not gearbox.

Takes over failed game project - Duke Nukem... game bombs
Takes over failed game project Aliens Col Mariness... game bombs
Tries to jump into the moba and FPS genre at the same time with Battleborn... cant compete with the bigger games and bombs
Having not learned their lesson with Battleborn... they try again with their 1v1 project.

Meanwhile... Borderlands fans are like, "Um, gearbox, we have money, if you want it... just sayin"

To be fair, they've probably been also seriously working on Borderlands 3 for a year or two.

Received the email. This is literally the complete opposite of what I would ever want in a video game. But thanks Gearbox!

I don't need the stress of 1v1 in my life. I also don't have much faith in Gearbox.

"Since everyone is burned out on Borderlands, and our Borderlands 3 tech video didn't even nudge anyone awake, we need to put some sort of TOP SECRET announcement that is or is NOT in development"


1 v 1 strategy metagame with collectible cards. I'd say they are missing Zombies, WW2, Dinosaurs, and MOBA but they already tried the MOBA thing.
