Brothers In Arms Is Getting A TV Series

CINEMA NEWS – Gearbox’s almost forgotten IP is heading to the television. (Perhaps they should start to work on a new game aside from Borderlands.)

The project is led by Scott Rosenbaum, who previously was the showrunner of Queen of the South, V, or Gang Related. He also was the producer of Shield. The first season will dramatize a World War II scandal that got classified for no less than forty (!) years.

Randy Pitchford, the CEO of Gearbox, will act as a producer, and he will also help to develop the series’ script. Jean-Julien Baronnet (Assassin’s Creed), Richard Whelan (Band of Brothers Pacific), and Sean Haran (Gearbox chief business officer) are also attached to the Brothers In Arms series, but this show has not landed at a US television network yet. (Netflix, maybe?)

„I’m honoured to be joining the frontlines of this project and look forward to creating an emotional experience around a title that means so much to the Gearbox community. What attracted me to this series was that while it’s effectively a show about war, the series is really about the incredible stories of the ordinary men and women, from the soldiers, resistance groups, to local civilians who are confronted and overcame impossibly difficult extraordinary situations. In addition, it’s incredibly exciting to be able to bring these previously classified, unknown stories to an audience, stories that an audience is going to be quite frankly shocked they hadn’t heard before,” said Rosenbaum in the announcement.

Brothers in Arms debuted in 2005 with Brothers in Arms: Road to 30. It launched on PlayStation 2, Xbox, Mac, and PC. Its last game was a mobile title in 2014 called Brothers in Arms: Sons of War. Gearbox should consider developing a new title for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, and PC at this point.
