You heard it right, people. Cliff Bleszinski, Epic Games’ former design director has popped his head up in the gaming world again. Bleszinski has a new studio, Bosskey Productions. Through his twitter feed, he recently announced Bosskey’s first project, a free-to-play science fiction shooter for PC, with the working title of BlueStreak.
After leaving Epic Games in October of 2012, ending a 20-year stint with the studio, Bleszinski took a long break from the industry. He is known for his work on Jazz Jackrabbit, Unreal Tournament and of course, the action packed Gears of War franchise. It’s of little surprise that BlueStreak sees Bleszinski head back to the shooter action realm yet again.
Known for his colourful descriptions of his own titles, Bleszinski is already back to his quotable best. After various tweets announcing his new studio and game, he thought he should write a heartfelt message: “Thanks to everyone who has been supportive! Those who have been mean, you should feel bad and go home and step on a nail.” Yep, that’s the Cliff Bleszinski we remember.
