With so many high profile projects underway, Gearbox is no stranger to the need for skilled individuals in our line of work. How better to help nurture and encourage that talent than by supporting educational programs that focus on game development? Gearbox has donated $50,000, mentors for students, and an audio lab to SMU's Guildhall program. We have several employees who came from the Guildhall program and are proud to support higher education. This article on gamesindustry.biz contains more details.
"I think it is clear that the videogame industry has the vast financial support and consumer demand it needs to continue its global growth. But what I and many industry leaders are very worried about is hiring and retaining world class talent. That's why programs like The Guildhall at SMU need our support." – Randy Pitchford
