Pitchford Eddings Borderlands

David Eddings, Borderlands’s original Claptrap voice actor, claims Gearbox Software CEO Randy Pitchford allegedly assaulted him back in 2017.

During a few posts on Twitter, Eddings clarified some of the reasons he will not be returning for the upcoming Borderlands 3. Along with a physical assault at GDC 2017, Eddings alleges that Pitchford had also been stalking him on social media.

Eddings goes on in the thread to describe Pitchford siphoning money as well as other behind-the-scenes details.

Today’s news follows a Twitter rant that the CEO found himself in a few days ago just after Borderlands 3’s gameplay reveal event. Thanks to a report from Kotaku earlier this year, both Gearbox and publisher 2K Games found themselves tied up in controversy earlier this year thanks to more allegations directed toward Pitchford.

OnlySP has reached out to Eddings and Gearbox Software for comment.
