Battleborn boss denies free-to-play plans


Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford has denied a Kotaku report that Gearbox is about to take its flagging shooter Battleborn free-to-play within a couple of months. The publication had cited an anonymous source familiar with plans for the game, backing it up with the steadily falling price of the game and the revival of Evolve following its conversion.

But Pitchford denounced the story as “reckless” on Twitter.

He also¬†clarified that the company “has some unannounced plans to do a trial version of the game that would be free and from which retail can be purchased along with DLC” and that it was likely not a timed demo but that plans hadn’t been finalized.
