Claptrap Voice Actor Speaks Out, Accuses Gearbox CEO of Assault and Theft

In what is becoming a growing drama within the industry, David Eddings, the voice of Claptrap in Borderlands, has spoken out extensively against Randy Pitchford.

If you haven’t been following the saga, David Eddings is not voicing Claptrap in Borderlands 3. On the surface, this seemed to be due to a financial dispute in which Eddings claimed he was not properly compensated for past work. That is when Randy Pitchford responded with this:

This, according to Eddings, is not true and has now caused him to speak out publicly. And shockingly, what he is alleging would represent rather serious crimes including theft and assault.

Our Take

This is becoming a rather serious matter rather quickly and frankly, while Randy Pitchford has a tendency to speak up on social media, we can’t imagine he will respond in that vein any longer. Lawyers will likely be getting involved at this point and we have to imagine that 2K will need to make a formal statement as well. We’ll keep you updated as more of this drama unfolds.
