The Brothers In Arms games have always offered masterfully told WWII stories and now six years post-release of Brothers In Arms: Hell’s Highway, the game’s developer, Gearbox, is looking to bring the series to the new generation consoles provided they’re able to secure a publishing partner.
The Brothers In Arms IP has been held to only mobile platforms since Hell’s Highway’s release in 2008, but in an interview with IGN at the Develop: Brighton Conference co-founder of Gearbox, Randy Pitchford claimed that they’re next release will be “authentic” but the money and resources involved would be extensive.
“…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.”
Though no deals are place as of yet Pitchford still has great confidence that a deal is “on the brink.”
“…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.”
Perhaps Ubisoft will again be the partner for Gearbox to really get the project off the ground, but regardless of who it is, it seems likely that the next Brothers In Arms game is very close to being a reality for an Xbox One/PS4/PC release.
