Brothers in Arms 4 becomes new IP

Brothers in Arms: Furious 4 had evolved into a brand new IP, developer Gearbox Software has announced.

Gearbox co-founder and CEO Randy Pitchford said "they [Gearbox] kind of started to go in a place that started to get a little way from what the core of what the Brothers in Arms brand is all about... it needed to be unshackled."

There has been no further information given at this time, however Pitchford did say that the game will be "re-announced" at an upcoming event on September 15 in Dallas, Texas.

So is it likely to get a new name as Brothers in Arms 4 kind of indicates that it is a franchise game?

So for the third time they are going to re-announce this game? Hopefully it will be a lot better than the shambles they released at E3

I'm curious were the Brother in Arms games any good ? Because I've seen them around but no one plays it from what I've seen :S

It really needed to be changed. I remember watching the reveal at E3 the other year and thinking "THIS ISN'T BRIOTHERS IN ARMS!" It felt like they were about to water down a fantastic franchise with cartoony rubbish. Now it's lost the BIA tag, I'm quite interested. More interested to see how it shapes up against Insomniac's Overstrike/Fuse

I am glad they decided to turn it into a new IP since I think everyone agreed that this wasn't Brothers In Arms

Interesting, maybe this could be what the series has been calling out for

Will they start a fresh with Brothers in Arms 4 then? Or will it just be canned in the backburner for years until someone else is able to come up with a more fitting visualisation? It's good that they've went another direction as it definantely wasn't a BIA game, but they're going to have to explain this before it's 're-re-released to the public, which doesn't bode well when the company can't get it's original view right.
