Gearbox Software's Matthew Armstrong is leaving the studio.

Armstrong is best known as the creator and franchise director of the firm's wacky shooter-RPG hybrid Borderlands. He started as game design director and a writer on the first entry in the series.

In comments toGame Informer, he stressed that he was not fired, nor is he quitting out of anger, but instead seizing the opportunity to create something new in the wake of Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, its Claptastic Voyage DLC and the Handsome Collection.
