Randy Pitchford teases new Brothers in Arms game
Is the genre going back to its roots?
In the early to mid-2000s, Gearbox released a series of great World War II shooters that were overshadowed by competitors like Call of Duty, Halo, and Battlefield. They were well received by fans and critics alike but after years of waiting and a canceled sequel, many assumed the series was dead. That may not be the case.
After the Call of Duty: WWII reveal yesterday, Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford took to Twitter to call out Call of Duty for copying Brothers in Arms. He put a side by side comparison of CoD's cover art and a screenshot from Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway which released in 2008 and claimed they look identical. Personally, we think he might be overthinking it.

Regardless, a fan asked him when we'd be getting a new Brothers in Arms game and he replied with "Working on it". Randy is known for teasing a lot of stuff prior to official reveals so it's entirely possibly we could see the game show up at E3 2017! That's pure speculation, of course.
