Gearbox Software Get Bomb Threat, Police Officials Called In For Security

By   /   Oct 5, 2014

Gearbox Software’s offices in Texas were threatened with a car bomb scare over the weekend, about which CEO Randy Pitchford tweeted online tonight.

“Someone is out of control!” he tweeted. “Bomb disposal unit called to Gearbox HQ parking lot to deal with car bomb threat.”

He later said that the police used a bomb-control robot to check out the cars in the parking lot but found nothing. The call to the authorities was however not made by him, and so far it’s unclear as to how called the threat in. The Police Department did not disclosed any details with the company officials.

Pitchford also mentioned that he was not allowed to return to his car until the operation was completed, which is pretty self explanatory.

“Just started my car to drive it home and my mind’s eye flashed every film I’ve ever seen where the car blows up when started.”

The Plano Police Department has not issued any official statements regarding the bomb threat as of this time.

Gearbox Software is best known for the Borderlands franchise, the latest installment of which – Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel – is scheduled for release in a couple of weeks.
