Claptrap Voice David Eddings Named Head of Publishing at Rooster Teeth Games

Rooster Teeth is largely known for its web series, like the Halo-themed Red vs. Blue. However the company has also had a game development studio for a couple of years called Rooster Teeth Games. That studio also has a game publishing arm, seeking out potentially exciting games. The developer closed its week by naming a new Head of Publishing, David Eddings.

If that name doesn't ring a bell right away, perhaps this will.

Eddings is widely recognized as the voice of Borderlands' favorite annoying robot, Claptrap. He also worked with Gearbox for 12 years, most recently as the VP of Business Development, before exiting the company in 2017 for new horizons at Rooster Teeth. On Friday, Eddings announced his new position as Head of Publishing.

"So it's a great privilege to introduce myself to you as the Head of Publishing at Rooster Teeth Games," Eddings said on the Rooster Teeth website. "And it's an even bigger honor to be welcomed into the Rooster Teeth family and to have a platform to present to you some of the freshest, most fun, kick-ass indie games around. Between you and me, it feels like the last 20 years has been leading up to this very moment and I hope you'll join me for the ride."

Eddings is expected to reveal the first Rooster Teeth-published game in the coming months. In the meantime, today's a good time to remember his work as a voice actor by re-reading Shacknews' Claptrap Retrospective.
