Cliff Bleszinski bids adieu to Epic Games
After spending 20 years at Epic Games, and working on games such asÂ Jazz Jackrabbit, Unreal Tournament,Â andÂ Gears of War, Cliff Bleszinski is leaving the company to take the next step in his career.Cliff had this to say:
Iâ€™ve been doing this since I was a teenager, and outside of my sabbatical last year, I have been going non-stop. I literally grew up in this business, as Mike likes to say. And now that Iâ€™m grown up, itâ€™s time for a much needed break. I will miss the projects, the playtests, the debates, and most importantly, the people. Epic only hires the best of the best, and it has been a joy working with each and every one of you on a daily basis, whether you were hired weeks ago or decades ago. I have been fortunate enough to collaborate with a variety of disciplines, from code to art to marketing and PR â€“ itâ€™s been one big, rewarding learning experience. Iâ€™m confident that each project that is being built, whether at Epic, Chair, PCF, or Impossible will be top notch and will please gamers and critics alike.We wish you the best of luck on yourÂ futureÂ endeavorsÂ Cliff.
