On October 3 2012, Cliff Bleszinzki, former Design Director for Epic Games, announced his departure from a career of over 20 years. Bleszinzki cited the decision as personal, claiming that he needed a break from the industry.
Since leaving however, Cliff and his wife have been touring around America, including visiting other notable games developers. It appears that this form of sofa entertainment is still close to Bleszinski’s heart, as it’s only been a month since his departure, and already he’s being linked to the industry from which he just left.
Well, in the fashion that wouldn’t be amiss in a James Bond movie, Blesinzki tweeted:
This was then followed by a photograph of said phone:
What do you think this could be gamers? A prank by a long term fan, or initial negotiations between Ubisoft and the big C? What projects would you like to see Cliff attached to in the near future? As a visionary, I’d love to see him work on, and then announce a sequel to the 2003 epic Beyond Good & Evil. Let us know in the comments below.
Although please, no more chainsaws.
