Randy Pitchford from Gearbox Software just updated his .plan file. Here is a snip:

Gearbox Software is celebrating it's third anniversary.

I'm very proud of what we've accomplished thus far and am extremely excited about where we are going. In it's life span, Gearbox Software has shipped three complete titles and shelved twice as many SKU's. We seem to have made a few good decisions as we've sold a lot of units, won some awards and seem to have made many of our customers happy... Push read more below to check out full story!

But, we're not resting. We're just getting started. And we're attentively listening to our customers to help us push forward.

From our perspective, we haven't come close to reaching our potential. But, the things we've done up to this point have been fun and have been important to give us the experience, the resources and the partners we need to really make things happen as we move into new territory. In 2002 we're taking some great steps towards our larger creative goals.

This year, Gearbox will ship three, four or five titles including:
- Counter-Strike: Condition Zero
- Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 for PC
- James Bond title - to be named

All of this is extremely exciting to me and I envy each Gearbox developer that gets to focus all of their creative time towards these titles.

Moving forward, I expect that we'll continue to cultivate relationships with the folks that we've worked so well with thus far. Valve Software, in particular, has been instrumental in our endeavors and I look forward to many future adventures with them and their characters.

Also, soon we'll be creating new things that we hope will surprise and inspire game players and game makers everywhere. Along the way, we intend to attract new customers who still need a little extra effort from us before they figure out what they've been missing out on. It's the responsibility of the rest of us to show non-gamers that enjoying interactive entertainment is time well spent.

In any case, I wish everyone in our industry the success that we've achieved over the past three years.


1) Counter-Strike: Condition Zero
2) Tony Hawk Pro Skater 3 for PC
3) 007
4) Secret Project

Happy Birthday Gearbox!
