In a statement that surely no one saw coming, Gearbox has said that it won't be providing any more support for Battleborn going forward. In an official forum post, creative director Randy Varnell wrote "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."

Battleborn launched for PlayStation 4 back in the summer of 2016. It received reasonably positive reviews, but almost instantly, it failed to capture a sizeable audience. Supposedly, things didn't get much better following the announcement of a free trial earlier this year. It's safe to assume that Gearbox is now going full steam ahead with Borderlands 3, which is quite clearly in the works.

Dare we ask if you're a fan of Battleborn? Await the inevitable server shutdown notice in the comments section below.
