    And now, for his next trick...

    Gearbox Software announced that the company's co-founder, Randy Pitchford, will step down as president. Only, he's not leaving Gearbox. Pitchford will still serve as the CEO and president of Gearbox parent company, Gearbox Entertainment, and will shift his focus towards leading the company's newly formed Gearbox Studios.

    Taking his place as president of Gearbox Software will be the company's former chief technology officer Steve Jones. This...

    Cross-play Coming to Borderlands 3, Except on PlayStation

    Gearbox was ordered to remove cross-play on PlayStation platforms.

    Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford did a little round of "good news, bad news" today on Twitter. The good news, Pitchford says, is that an update is coming to Borderlands 3 that enables full cross-play support across all platforms! The bad news is that apparently Gearbox was ordered, by way of their "publisher" that they had to remove cross-play support from the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 versions...

    Farewell Battleborn

    Servers for Battleborn have been shut down forever.

    You can't say you didn't see this one coming. The servers for Battleborn have been shut down for good. The final day of the game being available to play was January 31, 2021. Gearbox sent the game out not with a bang, but with a whimper.

    The final update for the game came all the way back in October 2017. We knew about the server shut down as early as November 2019. Last night, the plug was pulled from the servers and...

    Scott Rosenbaum Named Showrunner for Brothers in Arms TV Series

    A TV series based off of the games based off of true stories.

    Scott Rosenbaum has been named the showrunner for a new television series based off of Gearbox's Brothers in Arms game series. The Brothers in Arms series itself is based off of true events and "explores previously classified World War II stories." The first season of the planned TV series will "reveal the biggest scandal of WWII, one which miraculously was kept secret for 40 years."

    Battleborn Servers to Shut Down in January 2021

    I bet you thought this game shut down years ago.

    The good news is that Battleborn isn't dead. Who knew, right? The bad news is that it will be once January 2021 rolls around. 2K announced via Twitter that they will be deactivating the servers for Battleborn in a little over a year from now.

    They also pulled the game from every digital storefront they could. I'm sure the millions of you that were still on the fence about picking it up for a year full of fun and merriment...

    Randy Pitchford, Gearbox, and Their Former Lawyer Drop Lawsuits

    All parties resolve "misunderstandings" as evidence exonerates Randy Pitchford.

    If you need to get up to speed on what is going on here, I suggest you check out the previous update from August where we go over the events of this long legal battle between Gearbox, Randy Pitchford, and Gearbox's former lawyer, Wade Callender. In short, Pitchford and Callender were suing each other over various grievances. Everyone involved came off as incredibly scummy in their own way. Like...

    Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford Accused of Contempt in New Court Filing

    "All (the Internet) care about is if my next video game is good or not."

    On Tuesday, former Gearbox lawyer, Wade Callender, filed a motion in Dallas County district court for contempt and has requested sanctions against Gearbox. The filing allegs "discovery abuse" and a failure to produce various court-ordered documents. This is the latest is a very long back-and-forth legal battle between Callender and Gearbox that started back in late 2018.

    No Cross-platform Play for Borderlands 3 at Launch

    Randy Pitchford finally shot that rumor down.

    A few days back, the Borderlands 3 Twitter promised an upcoming "celebration of togetherness." Many took that little teaser to mean that Gearbox was going to announce that Borderlands 3 would ship with cross-platform play support.

    Well, it doesn't have cross-platform support. Today's "celebration" was for something that really wasn't even close to cross-platform support. Yesterday, Randy Pitchford finally...

    David Eddings Details Abuse from Randy Pitchford

    Accusations include a wet-willy and aggressive shoving.

    One week ago, the dispute between Gearbox's Randy Pitchford and former Gearbox employee David Eddings went public in a hurry. It seemed as though this was largely over a pay dispute between the two parties but, as with most things involving Randy Pitchford, there's a bit more to it than that.

    Eddings has claimed, on more than one occasion now, that Randy Pitchford physically assaulted him. These allegations really...

    This is Why Claptrap has a New Voice Actor in Borderlands 3

    David Eddings says Gearbox just didn't want to pay him.

    If you've seen any promotional material for Borderlands 3 in the past couple of weeks, you may have noticed that Claptrap sounds quite a bit different from what you're used to. This is because David Eddings, the voice behind the robot in all of the previous games has been replaced by Jim Foronda.

    The reason? Money. Specifically, the claim from Eddings that Gearbox didn't want to pay Eddings for his work in Borderlands...

  • Former Gearbox Lawyer Claims CEO Randy Pitchford Took Secret $12 Million Bonus in Lawsuit Gearbox Claims is 'Absurd'


    Buckle up, everyone, because this is going to be a real doozy of a news post.

    There are two lawsuits recently filed between Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford and the former general counsel for Gearbox. They're both suing each other, both claiming the other were in violation of their legal responsibilities to the company. The lawsuit against Pitchford from the former Gearbox lawyer Wade Callender says that Pitchford received a secret $12 million bonus from Take-Two Interactive.

    Callender's lawsuit, filed December 21, 2018, also says that Pitchford is in violation of some contracts that involve Gearbox and a "separate real estate company" that both of them owned. Gearbox says that these accusations are "absurd" in a brief statement released today by a Gearbox spokesperson. ...

  • Battleborn Goes "Free" to Play with a "Free Trial" Starting Today

    Battleborn Goes "Free" to Play with a "Free Trial" Starting Today

    2K and Gearbox announced today that Battleborn now has a free "trial." It is being unceremoniously called Battleborn: Free Trial and it grants unlimited access to the competitive multiplayer and maps all without time limits, level caps, or any planned end date. Yes, they have very carefully not called it "free to play" in their announcement. So I guess Pitchford can still be "technically" correct about the game not going "F2P." So this "free trial" differs from being a full "free to pl...
