Bleszinski: “I’ll Never Make Another Disc-Based Game”

Posted on Tuesday, February 18 @ 13:30:00 Eastern by Alex_Osborn


Cliff Bleszinski, formerly of Epic Games, has made it clear that he is not interested in dealing with retailers and boxed products ever again. 

"The whole 'old guard,' where you get a Game Informer cover and an E3 reveal, is dead," he told Gamasutra in a recent interview. "I'll never make another disc-based game for the rest of my career, and [at E3] they're trying to woo buyers from Target and Walmart?"

Bleszinski also shared his thoughts on the Gears of War franchise, admitting it didn't turn out like he had envisioned.

It didn’t wind up what I’d hoped; I’d pitched it as ‘Band of Brothers with monsters’ — you know Band of Brothers is well-done and emotional, telling the story of the Greatest Generation and what they did in the war. Yet somehow we landed on ‘Predator’… the characters being all ‘buff and manly’, I’d never planned on that.

I don’t want Gears to be my defining legacy. At the end of the day, it’s known for being a fun, fantastic franchise. But I’d like to think there’s more to my creativity than that.

Ever since Cliff parted ways with Epic last year, he's remained relatively tight-lipped on what his next project will be. Hopefully we'll find out more in the near future.
