Gearbox apparently has nine AAA games in development

Gearbox, the creator of Brothers in Arms and Borderlands, apparently has nine Triple-A video games in development.

Embracer, the parent company of Gearbox, revealed these in-development projects as part of its recent financial results (via Eurogamer):

“Gearbox continues to scale the organisation to deliver on its ambitious growth plan, and there are currently nine AAA games under development.”

There are a number of things that we do know about that Gearbox is publishing. Hyper Light Breaker is one of them—the sequel to Hyper Light Drifter. Then there is Homeworld 3, from developer Blackbird Interactive, whose crowd-funding goal was $1. Plus, there is Have a Nice Death, Relic Hunters Legends, and Eyes in the Dark: The Curious Case of One Victoria Bloom.

None of those, I don’t think, one would describe as Triple-A, so there will be plenty that we don’t know about. My hope is that we get more Brothers in Arms. The last game in that series was Brothers in Arms: Hell’s Highway, back in 2008.

In VideoGamer’s review of that game, Wesley Yin-Poole said:

“Bar the jarring Action Camera, there’s not a lot wrong with Hell’s Highway. Rather, there’s a lot good with it. It’s an intelligent game made by adults for adults. It’ll have a hard time going up against Treyarch’s Call of Duty: World at War this Christmas, of course. But, like Sergeant Baker himself, it’s going to put up a damn good fight.”
