The developers of Borderlands franchise, Gearbox Software reportedly turned down an offer to develop Call of Duty game.

In an interview with KGN (german website) several months ago, Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford revealed that the studio was approached to develop a Call of Duty game, but turned it down.

Pitchford says, Gearbox only develops a game “when we can contribute to an existing brand something new, a kind of unique perspective and a new approach.”

“But that was not the case here, you have to play by the rules of the series. You have to do what is expected of a “Call of Duty“. In this I see but no real challenge for us, it wouldn’t have been motivating for our team.”

Do you agree with Pitchford’s stance on Call of Duty franchise?
