The Christian CEO of a video game development company has been axed from his position just days after voicing support for the Texas pro-life law, stepping down amid intense backlash from customers and clients over his position.
John Gibson, the President, and CEO of Tripwire Interactive, a video game development company he co-founded in 2005, came out in support of Texas’ recent pro-life legislation, which makes it illegal to abort a baby after it has a heartbeat, usually around the 6th week.
This was instantly met with shrieking scorn and derision from blue-check customers, clients, and other industry professionals.
As these things tend to go, with partners pledging to discontinue business and unable to stand the heat, a statement was released saying that Gibson’s comments “disregarded the values of the team” and was out from his role.
According to NME:
His interim successor Alan Wilson has been at Tripwire since it launched in 2005 and will work to “address concerns” raised by employees and partners over the last day.
This will likely include reaching out to Shipwright Studios – who worked on Chivalry 2 and Maneater with Tripwire – after the studio moved to cancel all existing contracts “effective immediately” following Gibson’s stance. On the community side, CohhCarnage – a Twitch streamer with over 1.4million followers – announced that he would be boycotting Tripwire due to the controversy.
There was been no comment from Gibson since stepping down.
