Randy Pitchford, creator on the Borderlands series and CEO of Gearbox Software has denied that his company signed a great deal with Microsoft about Xbox Borderlands 3 marketing.
Rumors about Microsoft having signed an Xbox marketing deal for many different upcoming titles, like the upcoming new Borderlands game, surfaced recently following a piece of writing from website Rectify Gaming, although IGN’s Ryan McCaffrey above mentioned until this report was false.
Taking to Twitter last week, Gearbox Software’s CEO and President almost debunked this rumor by praoclaiming that the studio has signed “no such thing”.
“Where are you presently getting that?”, Pitchford wrote. “Gearbox signed no such thing with Microsoft. How are these tips becoming propagated as fact should there be zero basis in reality?”
“Clearly reported by zero reputable sources- “, the Borderlands co-creator continued. “I think to be reputable, you must love and pursue truth. Reposting news from others without checking dealing with is one of the failures of digital “journalism””
Interesting to make note of is usually that Pitchford includes a past of heavily denying rumors which later proof actually. Another interesting tidbit is the fact Gearbox Software programs are solely the developer behind Borderlands, and marketing deals are generally struck by publishers. This can signify an Xbox Borderlands 3 marketing deal continues to be possible as Pitchford only asserted that “Gearbox signed no such thing with Microsoft”, but publisher 2K might have.
