There’s just one thing that could bring Borderlands 3 down before it even sees releases, and that's Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford.
He's the owner and CEO. He can do whatever the hell he wants with his property.
Well between Pitchford , Take2 and Eps, I won't be giving any of those assholes my money.
oh im not spending money on his game. but he can do whatever he wants
Hahaha imagine letting a single mans antics sway your view on a game made by hundreds of passionate devs
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.
He sucks at it too.
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.
Or whatever he claims to be his property, like the bonuses his company gets from an outside party regarding work others chiefly did?
He can SMD!
Just because he can, doesn't mean he should.
Yeah he can do whatever he wants but tt is bad look when he is frequently in the news
Including running it into the ground.
Reminder he did this stunt at Pax over a few twitter comments https://youtu.be/2BmuPUiYAX... His Ego is bigger then EvaXephon, Phil Fish, and Cliffy B
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.
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.
Is Gearbox independently owned? Because if not Im surprised that 2K didnt fire him years ago.
yes they don't have any higher-ups to control them
It will still go on to sell millions of copies despite the few people on here not purchasing.
In certain cases the few can cause a ripple effect. Like a throwing a rock into the ocean, if enough rocks get tossed in there the results can be devastating.
Same bloke who lied about Aliens:colonial marines and received backlash from the gaming community. Never trust this snake oil salesman
It is always easy to make fun of pitchy.
He's making millions of $$$, so the last one laughing is an easy guess.
He makes himself a target. Are you a big pitchy fan? I can probably guess that one. Lol
You're right..he has opinions and stuff but sometimes he says some stupid things.
