No Plans to Shut Down Battleborn Servers

Battleborn Not Shutting Down Servers

There are no plans to shut down the Battleborn servers as there is still a healthy player pool. This news comes from a vlog by one of the Gearbox developers. Scott Velasquez (Lead Programmer Battleborn) recorded a video during his commute, as Anthony Nicholson (Senior Producer  Battleborn) and he were on a trip to Gearbox Quebec.   They talked about video games in general, but also the recent news about Paragon and Gigantic shutting down their servers. That news in particularly got Battleborn players wondering what would happen with the Battleborn servers. During this vlog Scott mentions that a community member (LuckMod from the Battleborn Lost Heroes team) contacted him because he was seeing Paragon player migrating to Battleborn. While it is sad to see that other games are shutting down, Anthony could tell us that they don’t have those plans for Battleborn as there still is a healthy player pool. While most people will check the steam charts about a game’s player base, Battleborn actually performs better on consoles rather than PC. This news definitely helps with the question players have with the game  “are battleborn servers going down” or  “will the  battleborn servers stay up”. Battleborn is here to stay I double checked this news with Anthony Nicholson who is on the Battleborn Live Team.

Paragon Player Migrating to Battleborn

Battleborn Minor Update

During this video Anthony also talks about a minor update coming to Battleborn. I saw on Reddit that people are already speculating what this could be. However they are not aware that the video was recorded  2 weeks prior the recent update that made some changes to the Battleborn marketplace.
