BlackSite: Area 51 [].

Speaking to Xbox 360 []and PC."

Addressing complaints leveled against the engine by other companies, Pitchford said, "I've seen some of the stuff on the internet about the problems and I don't know if these developers are maybe new, or not used to using other people's technology or if they've gotten too many inexperienced developers or they're just cry-babies. I just don't know."

"If I were going to do that technology myself I'd have to spend another two years on my game and spend a lot more time and money, and that's bad, and that's not good for gamers."

Gearbox is currently at work on Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway [], a World War Two FPS powered by the Unreal Engine 3. The game is scheduled for release in 2008 on the PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
