No more support for Battleborn while devs focus on what is almost certainly Borderlands 3

Sad but unsurprising news for the unloved shooter.

Battleborn, the hero-based shooter mashed-up with elements of a MOBA, is about to receive its final update.

Announced over the weekend, developer Gearbox will be stepping away from the game after its upcoming fall update, with no plans to produce any new content or patch the game in any way. Servers will remain online, thankfully, so you'll still be able to jump in and play if you're one of the few who stuck with the game despite its release alongside the immensely popular and similarly styled Overwatch, but you won't be seeing anymore updates after the next one.

On the brighter side, Battleborn's creative director Randy Varnell announced that the game's closure will allow the studio to focus on their next project, the all-but-confirmed Borderlands 3. Varnell will "play a significant role" on the project and has promised more news in the near future.

In other MOBA news, the ridiculously popular Arena of Valor is coming to Nintendo Switch.
