Borderlands creator quits Gearbox


The creator of the Borderlands series, Matthew Armstrong, has officially left the house of Gearbox.

With an announcement on Twitter no less:

Though not out of spite or just plain anger, like some people would assume, he told Game Informer:

Pre-Sequel, Claptastic Voyage, and Handsome collection all shipped. In a rare moment, I was temporarily non-vital. I could leave without damaging Borderland or Gearbox too much if I did it at this moment, so now was the time.

Is he implying that he has something in the works as a possible future venture, perhaps an adventure game?

Whatever the future may hold, let’s just hope it’s something awesome.

What do you say to describe a guy who only sleeps 4 days out of the week? Probably a lot but if you ever see an obscure story about some kind of food product, indie game or something that doesn't quite fit on this site, you can (almost) guarantee this guy wrote it. Whether or not he was awake while it was written is anybody's guess.
