Gearbox have announced they will no longer be adding new content drops to Battleborn.
“I’ve been working on Battleborn nearly exclusively since 2012, and in some ways, that work stretches back to 2009 for me. It’s been a long labor of love with many of my good friends at Gearbox, and I’m proud to have shared that journey with you, our community,” said Varnell.
“I want to personally thank you for giving Battleborn a chance, and dipping down into a new universe with us.”
Battleborn was only released a little over a year ago, but suffered from launching so close to Overwatch, a game that also features hero-based multiplayer gameplay. Gearbox essentially made Battleborn free-to-play earlier in the summer after allowing people unlimited access to the game’s multiplayer, modes and maps, with a selection of playable heroes rotated weekly.
The news comes not long after Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford said during PAX West that around 90% of the studio’s staff were “working on the thing I think most of you guys want us to be working on,” which is widely believed to be the next instalment in the Borderlands series.
