Battleborn is going down, Fall update to be the last one for Gearbox’s first-person shooter

Gearbox’s first-person shooter, Battleborn, was released in 2016 and after a whole year of support, the company decided to pull the plug. As such, the upcoming Fall update will be the last patch content for Battleborn and even though the server will remain live, there aren’t any planned additional patches or content updates for it.

As Battleborn’s creative director Randy Varnell stated:

“As of this week, there will be no more Battleplans and there is currently no planned content after the Fall Update. Details of any future changes or news will be made on our forums or through social media, so keep your radars on.”

The Fall update for Battleborn will feature minor balance changes and some new skins that are themed around some of Borderlands’ characters. In addition, it will include some updated title art for the more significant challenges in the game, as well as some additional Finisher Boosts and Taunts.

Varnell later claimed that Gearbox will be now focusing on a new title, and our guess is that Varnell is referring to Borderlands 3.

“If you’ve been paying attention to recent news from the Gearbox Panel at PAX West, you’ll have heard that many folks at Gearbox are working on a highly anticipated project. Although I’m sad my time on Battleborn is coming to a close, I’m happy to announce that I will play a significant role on this highly anticipated but unannounced game, and I’m sure you’ll be hearing some from me again in the future regarding Gearbox games.”

And that is that!
