Despite the rumours, Battleborn will not be going free-to-play. However, Gearbox Software's Randy Pitchford has confirmed plans for "a trial version of the game that would be free and from which retail can be purchased along with DLC."
Although the source claims that the announcement could come as early as November, Mr. Pitchford has stated that nothing has been nailed down yet, so it could take some time until we have something concrete.
Sales of Battleborn failed to meet expectations, possibly due to releasing in the same month as Overwatch, and the price has dropped considerably since launch. This 'definitely not free-to-play' version might be a good way of enticing more people onboard.
