Seven Borderlands veterans leave Gearbox

Randy Pitchford says, “On the best terms.”

Gearbox, Borderlands’ senior development team has been left by a group of developers.

According to Axios, several of the members, such as senior producer Christopher Brock and Keith Schuler, were with Gearbox more than 10 years.

Paul Sage was the creative director, Chris Strasz UX/Game Feel director and Kevin Penrod were both the lead characters artists. They all plan to collaborate on a new independent project.

Axios reports that the group was working on an unknown project, separate to Gearbox’s announcement of Tiny Tiny’s Wonderlands in Borderlands.

Gearbox boss Randy Pitchford responded that the group quit on the “best of terms”, but would not disrupt our plans.

Pitchford stated, “The majority of our attention right now is focused on finishing Wonderlands,” and “which is moving along.”

Gearbox released Borderlands 3 in September 2019, its last major release. THQ Nordic parent Embracer purchased the studio for $363m in February 2019. Further performance targets could increase the value of the deal to $1.3bn, which would be over 6 years.
