Troy Baker betragtes som værende et af de mest alsidige talenter i spilbranchen når det gælder stemmeskuespil, og da fans fandt ud af at hans karakter fra Tales from the Borderlands, Rhys, vendte tilbage i Borderlands 3, var der mange der forventede at se ham vende tilbage som stemmen bag.
Men det gjorde han ikke, tvært imod havde han og Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford en disputs via Twitter, og nu uddyber Baker hvorfor han ikke vendte tilbage. I en besked på Twitter (via SegmentNext) forklarer Baker at han valgte ikke at vende tilbage, for Gearbox nægtede ham at gå igennem en fagforening.
"So they came to me, and they were like, 'Do you want to do this?',Which I said, 'Absolutely.' And then they made it impossible for me to do the role. It had nothing to do with money, it had nothing to do with money. They just simply would not go about doing it the way that we needed it to be done. So then it was like, I never said no"
"No, it was simply a matter of they wouldn't go union. And I can't do a non-union gig. And without getting too deep into the weeds of that, we had long conversations about this. We always knew going into it, that this was going to be the thing. They were going to take these characters, and put them from the Tales from the Borderlands series from Telltale, into Borderlands proper. I've been waiting for this call. They were like, 'Do you want to do this?' And I said, 'Yes'. They never, because they would never move from that position. I'm not mad. It's invariably a completely different character, but it still stings"
Gearbox er også blevet beskyldt af tidligere ansat David Eddings, der lagde stemme til Claptrap, om noget af det samme.
