Gearbox Software and 2K Games just announced that Battleborn will ship May 3rd, 2016. With the feedback and the meta data the company has received from the Closed Technical Test they decided to delay the game. This way the studio can better act on optimizing the co-op and multiplayer experience for the player.
New IP is hard and we cannot help by be us.

We at Gearbox are feeling energized by the data of our Closed Technical Test, and the additional time will allow us to better act on the feedback for Battleborn competitive and cooperative play when it releases. We sincerely appreciate your patience as we work tirelessly on Battleborn. We look forward to sharing the Open Beta with everyone next year.
