Gearbox Make (and Break) Controversial Partnership

It was revealed, earlier this week, that Gearbox had partnered with G2A to release the Collector's versions of Bulletstorm Full Clip Edition. A backlash ensued, as is often the case when G2A is involved, including popular Youtuber Totalbiscuit refusing to cover any more Gearbox titles.

Fast forward a few days and a statement was released by Gearbox. After conversations with Totalbiscuit, a series of demands were made to G2A, to be met by the PC release of the title on Steam, or Gearbox would pull out of the deal.


On the 7th April  Gearbox announced they would start “executing on our extraction process” as no communications had been made by G2A.
