Pitchford has gone from the subsidiary video game development arm of Gearbox to focusing his duties towards the full company, as he is also the president of Gearbox Entertainment.

The announcement was celebrated by Pitchford on Twitter, alongside excerpts of the internal staff letter that announced the changes at the company. “As president of Gearbox Software, all production and development is now a function of Steve Jones’ leadership,” it reads.
“I will be working to develop and grow our new Gearbox Studios business unit,” adds Pitchford. “I hope, before too long, that I can construct a self-driven small team there that includes a new president of Gearbox Studios that will drive our transmedia efforts.”
This new media production subsidiary of the company focuses on film and television, which means that it is no doubt involved with the upcoming Borderlands movie.
“With multiple AAA projects underway,” said Pitchford in his tweet thread, “and many more in our greenlight pipeline with Gearbox Software along with a raft of great games from Gearbox Publishing and an explosive transmedia business with Gearbox Studios, we are just getting started.”
