Gearbox Publishing is no more? Or is there something else to it?

Scott Velasquez, the Senior Technical Director at Gearbox Entertainment, just dropped a massive bomb on LinkedIn, and it seems like he’s implying something quite dire.

He announced that he’s moving on to a new role at Gearbox Entertainment. He’s calling it “Builder of Stuff” – yeah, that’s the actual title he’s going with. But that’s not even the important part, as he also said, “RIP Gearbox Publishing, we had a good run.

What does this mean for Gearbox Publishing remains unknown. The company could be shutting down or maybe merging, reforming, etc? We don’t have all the answers yet, but the way Scott put it makes it sound like Gearbox Publishing as we know it is done.

Scott also mentioned that he’s diving back into full-time game development on an unannounced title. That’s got to be exciting for him, and honestly, it’s pretty hype for us too. Gearbox has been behind some seriously epic games, so whatever they’re cooking next will be interesting.

I am ANGE1K. I started playing video games a long time ago. In a blink of an eye, I became a hardcore gamer. A couple of years later, I traversed to the professional Counter-Strike 1.6 scene. After the competitive ERA, I managed to find the gaming industry amusing and started working on FGR. 8 years after founding FGR, my mission remains the same. That is to discover secrets within the gaming industry, create guides for all the games I play, and provide you with some important news. Oh, yeah, I post tons of patch notes too. At the time, I play everything that seems reasonable to play, make content about it and help gamers to the best of my abilities. P.S. Last time I counted how many hours I've spent in video games turned out to be 13+ years. And that was a long time ago too. Almost 24/7 in front of PC.
