Gearbox: We’re Committed to Matt Baker’s Story for Brothers in Arms & Will Come Back to That “Soon”
Written Tuesday, June 14, 2011 By Dan WebbView author's profile
When Gearbox took to the stage to announce Brother in Arms: Furious 4 at this year’s E3 – a WWII shooter that’s a little different from the rest of the franchise – I bet a few of you whispered, “But what about Matt Baker and co?”
Of course, Matt Baker was one of the main protagonists from the more serious Brother in Arms titles, but Furious 4 is moving the franchise away from the serious to the wacky. But that doesn’t mean they’re leaving that strand behind forever, oh no.
“Brother in Arms is built on the history of Brotherhood and the story of Matt Baker,” said a Gearbox rep at E3. “Gearbox is committed to that story and we we’re going to come back to that story soon. That’s not why we’re here today though.”
So there you have it, if you loved the more serious overtones of the original franchise, that’s not dead yet.
Keep an eye out for our Brother in Arms: Furious 4 preview later on today. Remind yourself what the next BIA is all about with the Furious 4 E3 2011 trailer below.
