Borderlands 2 lead writer Anthony Burch is leaving Gearbox

Going to Los Angeles to work on a new RocketJump project

Almost five years ago, Anthony Burch went from being a Destructoid staff member to a Destructoid alumnus, moving on to work as a writer at Gearbox Software. On his personal Twitter account this morning, he announced that he would be leaving Gearbox to work on a new series for Hulu produced by Video Game High School studio RocketJump.

In his time at Gearbox, Burch was the lead writer for Borderlands 2 and its downloadable content. He also contributed to Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. He definitely made his voice heard through the characters on Pandora, and while there are plenty out there who resent that, I appreciate what he did to bring the Borderlands universe to life.

Gearbox recently posted an opening for a writer. Though it is not certain that it is related to today's news, I can imagine that the prospect of potentially working on the Borderlands series has made the position even more attractive.
