Gearbox’s Creative Director, Randy Varnel recently announced that Battleborn’s active development has ended and that they are moving on to a new project. Battleborn will not close, but simply go into “maintenance mode” and the final update will be deployed in the near future. Afterward, a small team will address emergency bugs and keeping servers in shape.

I’ve been working on Battleborn nearly exclusively since 2012, and in some ways, that work stretches back to 2009 for me. It’s been a long labor of love with many of my good friends at Gearbox, and I’m proud to have shared that journey with you, our community. Your spirit and loyalty have been a constant inspiration to the team at Gearbox.

Also, I want to personally thank you for giving Battleborn a chance, and dipping down into a new universe with us. We make games for you. And many of you have shared with us how much Battleborn has meant to you personally.
