Gearbox wants something different from Bungie and Infinity Ward

gearbox-ceo-wants-new

Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford has told VideoGamer in an interview during E3 that although he enjoys Halo and Modern Warfare, he’s waiting to see something new from the minds at Bungie and Infinity Ward.

“I keep waiting to hear what Bungie is going to do that’s not Halo,” he told VideoGamer during E3.

“Those guys are amazing, right? They walk on water! And the same with Infinity Ward. It’s like, dude I’m totally psyched to get my Call of Duty fix every year, but you guys are amazing! What else have you got? Can you give me something I haven’t seen before?”

However, Pitchford understands reasons as to why the two developers wouldn’t be throwing out anything new right now.

“The folks that are innovating need to be rewarded so that the folks that are making big bets can take that risk,” he said.

“It’s too big of a risk for Infinity Ward to do anything but what they’re doing, because there’s too much value and there’s really big scope for it.”
