    Default Gearbox turned down offer to develop Call of Duty game



    Borderlands developer Gearbox Software reportedly turned down an opportunity to develop a Call of Duty game.

    In an interview with German site KGN, studio boss Randy Pitchford apparently revealed that the studio had been approached to develop a game in the dominant FPS series, but turned it down because he saw 'no real challenge' in taking the job.
    During the interview, which the site stipulates took place "several months ago", Pitchford said that Gearbox only develops a game "when we can contribute to an existing brand something new - a kind of unique perspective and a new approach,"

    "But that was not the case here," he said.

    Given the importance of the series to publisher Activision, and its continued dominance achieved by following a set formula each year, Pitchford went on to question the flexibility his studio would have been afforded when taking the reins of a new CoD game.
    Quote Originally Posted by Pitchford

    Smart decision Gearbox, hopefully this cancerous game series suffers a fast, painful death.

    They need to look up how many people have bought BO2. I would've said yes just to help and get acouple more bucks to improve my company.

    It will die soon though, we just need a new game to comeout with more to offer.

    It's their reputation at stake.

    Gearbox are known for their unique take on FPS games: Brothers in Arms, Aliens, Borderlands.

    COD doesn;t give them that freedom hence it's shit.

    only thing holding up CoD for non-fanboys is zombies. make that a spinoff game, and let the main fps die out

    i know, i just like the co-op aspect. I've over played house of the dead so much lol. left for dead is limited when it comes to weapon selection, but fun with a bunch of scaredy shit friends. im most likely getting ZombiU but i want some online co-op which i understand it doesnt have.
