Gearbox is a company that's been fraught with controversy over the last years or so. Randy Pitchford insulting those who didn't like Duke Nukem Forever certainly didn't help matters. Then there was the debacle of Alien: Colonial Marines botched release and deceptive marketing, of course, and many Homeworld fans weren't happy when they acquired the rights to the franchise. Still, throughout all the hooplah, the Borderlands franchise has been a consistent moneymaker for the developer. It might make sense to assume that the company has another one in the works, right? Polygon The article also contains a swipe at Valve for their handling of Half Life 3, because a company that released constantly delayed games like Duke Nukem Forever and Aliens: Colonial Marines in broken, unfinished states is clearly qualified to make that criticism. You know, clearly. As you can probably imagine, I'm not the biggest fan of Gearbox. Brothers In Arms was fine, but they haven't made one of those games in years, and by the sounds of the article, Brothers In Arms: Furious Four has morphed into something else entirely. I can't stand Borderlands, and the less said about Duke Nukem Forever and Aliens: Colonial Marines, the better. Still, I don't think they're entirely incapable of producing decent content, and the industry could always use new IPs. Let's just hope they don't have to steal the money from Sega this time around. For those still looking to get their epic maymay Borderlands fix, you can look forward to Telltale's Tales of the Borderlands, which will be released... eventually, I guess.
