Cliff Bleszinski is coming out of “retirement” and will be announcing details about his first game that he’s been working on since he quit his previous position as Lead Designer on the Gears of War series at Epic Games in 2012. Bleszinski has previously said that he wanted to open up his own studio and get back into the arena shooter genre, as well as make a game that had no cutscenes or scripted sequences. Bleszinski is also credited for the Jazz Jackrabbit series and has also been involved in Unreal Tournament along with fellow Epic designer James Schmalz.
I'm officially coming out of retirement to make video games again. Stay tuned here for details in the next 7 days! #DontCallItAComeback
