He's the owner and CEO. He can do whatever the hell he wants with his property.

JackBNimble7d ago

Well between Pitchford , Take2 and Eps, I won't be giving any of those assholes my money.

harmny7d ago

oh im not spending money on his game. but he can do whatever he wants

D3TH_D33LR7d ago

Hahaha imagine letting a single mans antics sway your view on a game made by hundreds of passionate devs

JackBNimble7d ago

It's not about a single man by the way.
I have principles that I stand by and I will not support douche tactics.
Take2 lost me as a customer, EPS lost me as a customer, and Pitchford is an all around douchebag .

Support whomever you want, but I have standards and I will not bend to bullshit in this industry.

Sucks at what? Borderlands is still the greatest shooter looter out there, he's doing just fine.

"Sucks at what? Borderlands is still the greatest shooter looter out there, he's doing just fine."

So many disagrees, and not a single person to suggest a shooter looter that is better.

Godmars2907d ago

Or whatever he claims to be his property, like the bonuses his company gets from an outside party regarding work others chiefly did?

TheSaint6d ago

Just because he can, doesn't mean he should.

BenRoxio6d ago

Yeah he can do whatever he wants but tt is bad look when he is frequently in the news

obidanshinobi6d ago

Including running it into the ground.

Reminder he did this stunt at Pax over a few twitter comments

His Ego is bigger then EvaXephon, Phil Fish, and Cliffy B

leemo197d ago

That's for sure. He helped make a successful franchise, but he thinks because of that his the best, when really most of gearbox games have flopped harder than Waterworld.

IanMcgraw6d ago

He does think that he's always right and it is just some vendetta against him that makes people hate him.

This guy is a buffoon - foot in mouth, huge narcissist,
just a cringey bloke all round.

You forgot "snake-oil salesman" in your description. This guy would peddle a dead cat to a 5-year old if it meant he could make a buck... "Hey kid, I've got a beautiful Tabby cat here and it's still got 7 lives left! Ignore the guts hanging out of its mouth, it's just actin' cute and playin' dead! Even better - you can spray paint it any color you like! I'm telling you, kid, the options are endless!!"

This guy diverting funding from Sega/Fox for Alien: Colonial Marines to Borderlands 2 and then basically laughing in everyone's face about it when called out is why Gearbox will never get a dime from me while he is still a shareholder, let alone CEO. It's a shame too because they did such great work porting Halo CE to PC.

Thank you for posting this,
because it's literally almost word-for-word what I would have said about him.
this guy being an absolute scumbag and charlatan, and laughing in people's faces about it, and taking pride in it is pretty well documented.

from the lengthy dissertations publicly posted by former employees that ran afoul of him and that he screwed over, to his absolute horrible business practices.

it isn't often I would lobby for the removal of the head of any studio or company that makes a good quality product/ game, but he's the exception.

I would love to see 2K take control of the studio and put somebody else in,
I think the games wind up being as great as they are because of the heads that are still there in each building department rather than him being the leader of the studio.
I as well, will never buy anything from them because of it, if I should get borderlands 3 it'll be a used copy,
And I hate to say that because of the brilliant people that work on the game.
All that being said, I'm not really clamoring to pick it up at this point either way, that being a separate issue.

I've got too much of a backlog to be spending 40% of my time sifting through garbage weapons in a menu.
