That Weird Nazi Hunting Game Hasn't Been Cancelled, It's Just 'Evolved'

While there were rumours earlier this year that Brothers in Arms: Furious Four, the Inglourious Basterds-esque shooter from Gearbox, had been cancelled, turns out that's not the case.

The game hasn't been cancelled. It's just "evolved".

"The game has evolved, I think people are going to be surprised by what they'll see, and it's still evolving", Gearbox boss Randy Pitchford told CVG. "One of the reasons why we're not talking about it now is that it's evolving and we need to make further changes before we can start talking about it."

Seeing as publisher Ubisoft's let the trademarks on the old name slide, at the very least it sounds like it's got a new name.

    Evolved out of being a slap in the face of the deadly-serious, sombre and respectful portrayal of soldiers that was given in the real Brothers in Arms games? Yeah I didn't think so. If you want to make a cartoony WW2 game then don't soil the name of a proper series. The next step from this is Medal of Honor: Go Karts or Call of Duty Dance Evolution.

      So right, the acts they displayed here are war crimes shooting un-amred enemies, torturing and mutilating enemies.

      I guess this is a reflection of what the US does best in the present day.

    I'm disappointed it hasn't been cancelled.
