Cliff Bleszinski, also called CliffyB, was the lead designer on the unique Gears of Conflict trilogy and is one thing of an icon within the video games business, however he’s been on hiatus since 2018. Now he’s again in enterprise although, and you’ll take that from the person himself.

One factor we might be fairly positive of although, is that it’s not linked to the Gears of Conflict franchise. Within the replies to his authentic submit, somebody requested Bleszinski “Does it contain any chainsaws?”, to which he responded with “none”. The query is a reference to the lancer, the long-lasting chainsaw gun from the Gears of Conflict franchise, so it seems to be like CliffyB isn’t going again to his roots with this subsequent challenge.
Due to a bit extra Twitter chatter, we additionally know that Bleszinski has spoken to Rami Ismail concerning the challenge. Ismail is one other well-known recreation developer and advisor who might be greatest identified for his work on indie bullet hell shooter Nuclear Throne. It’s not clear whether or not they two spoke about it in an expert setting, however Ismail’s portfolio web site does cryptically point out that his subsequent challenge is coming quickly, however isn’t fairly prepared for the limelight but.
Bleszinski has been taking a break from the video games business for the previous few years after his final main launch, Lawbreakers, fell wanting gross sales expectations. Bleszinski had began up a brand new studio known as Boss Key to make the world shooter, however the recreation by no means actually obtained off the bottom, regardless of constructive opinions. Our personal assessment was glowing, with our author calling it “an exhilarating, eclectic, but tightly designed fps theme park”.
