It is currently unknown who will be the lead writer for Gearbox’s next Borderlands project. Anthony Burch initially rose to fame with his sister Ashly Burch in Destructoid and GameTrailers comedy series Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin’? Anthony took over writing duties for Gearbox’s Borderlands games with the first sequel Borderlands 2, where his sister also provided the voice of new character Tiny Tina.
Burch’s stint in the franchise has been divisive to say the least. Some fans appreciated the new flavor of humor, while others derided the attempts at comedy for its abundant use of references to pop culture and internet memes.
