Randy Pitchford got ripped off millions of $

That really sucks. Fortunately it sounds like Gearbox will survive this. But, holy ■■■■. Why does the world have to have so many ■■■■■■■■ in it?

Something like this helped ruin another game company I like. Decipher.

That is awful, but let’s focus on what’s important here: How will this impact the (alleged) ongoing development of the next installment of Brothers in Arms?

It won’t. Mr. Pitchford is not GBX and GBX is not Mr. Pitchford.

It better not - I’m gonna hold you that, Gulfwulf. Oh yes, I’ll be watching.

I’m sure he’ll happily repay you every cent you paid for his information :stuck_out_tongue:

Back on topic, looks like the major business hit was to the Nerdvana Cafe operation. Which sucks.

What the heck, over? I just read an article regarding the Pitchford’s assistant John Wright Martin, that he embezzled around $3M from them. After receiving a judgement to repay, the guy wrote them a hot check then vanished. He’s no doubt on to other targets and is well funded. Anybody have a photo of this guy?

Really sorry to read of this.

Is this why Randy can’t stop releasing DN3D ports? I already thought he couldn’t pay of his loans anyways, where the hell did he get 3 million $?
This is a joke if it wasn’t obivious.

I just read the article on Decipher. That Eddleman dude is scum.

@The_Cyberbaron From the looks of it, they are probably hiding the stolen money pretty well. I dunno how exactly. I’d say they need to have authorities to put these thieves on their watch list. I wouldn’t be surprised if they had to dig deeper using the dark net to find that money transaction.

@DrIvanRadosivic So that’s where that Battleborn money went… Do you think they will recover it?
