No specific titles have been mentioned as part of the deal, with Gearbox originally best known for science fiction titles such as entries in the Half-Life
series and the PC version of Halo
However, more recently, the Texas-based developer has become renowned for its key Brothers in Arms
series of World War II games, as well as the recently announced original intellectual property Borderlands
and Aliens: Colonial Marines
Jonathan Epstein, president and CEO of Double Fusion, commented of the deal: “Gearbox is one of the gold standard developers focused on the highest production value titles targeted at core gamers, and we’re very excited to be working with them.”
