Future Developments for Battleborn Have Ceased, Servers Still Running

A game divided against itself cannot stand

There were some great ideas and nifty mechanics within Battleborn, but, ultimately, it seems like it was not destined to be a long-running franchise for Gearbox. In a forum post this weekend, Creative Director Randy Varnell stated that "there will be no more Battleplans and there is currently no planned content after the Fall Update." The lights may be on (for now), but nobody is home.

"Like Payday, but better" is a pretty good sales pitch, tbh

Lion Game Lion's RAID: World War II arrives soon but before it does, creative director Ilija Petrusic wanted to shed a little light about this four player co-op shooter with that "isn’t just Payday 2 during WWII."

Bioware Lays Out Plans for Co-Op Content in Mass Effect: Andromeda

Things are a little rough out there for some shooter games that aren't PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds. While the entire game itself struggled with issues since its launch, ultimately leading to an announcement that there would be no further single-player content or updates, the one shining point to Mass Effect: Andromeda was its co-op mode. Sadly, it seems that despite what was stated in that previous post, that, too, is coming to an end.

Interview sheds a little light on it all, but it doesn't sound too different than past offerings

Call of Duty: WWII's Zombie Mode is a Call of Duty Zombie Mode

The PlayStation Blog spoke with senior director Jon Horsley from Sledgehammer Games about the Zombie Mode in the forthcoming Call of Duty: WWII. There are a few interesting tidbits scattered in the interview, but it also sounds like there isn't anything particularly new here compared to the Zombie Modes of the previous Call of Duty entries.

There wasn't a whole lot of co-op news coming out of the Nintendo Direct on Wednesday.

The Latest ArmA 3 DLC Takes A More Humanitarian Aim

ArmA 3, a game known for its hardcore simulation of military combat, is shifting its focus slightly with its latest DLC, "Laws of War".  Where much of the base game centers around the moment-to-moment action and tactical decisions required in a firefight, "Laws of War" hones in on the effects of those firefights on both civilians living in the area and humanitarian workers attempting to repair the damage done afterward.

Our Weekend In Gaming: Return Of The Moon Wizards

Listen, you guys don't need me to tell you what most of the Co-Opticrew will be up to this particular weekend.  Bungie's latest co-op loot shooter has arrived in the form of Destiny 2, so you know we'll be playing it until our eyes bleed.  I will say, though, that I honestly wasn't expecting it to just barely edge out a loot shooter that's half a decade old.  I guess that just goes to show that you can never truly escape the siren call of better loot.
