Cliff Bleszinski, long known as the face of the Gears of War franchise, says that the new intellectual property he is currently working on is called Bluestreak/Silverstreak, after the first Transformer toy that he has ever owned.
He tells StickSkills that, “I don’t want the chainsaw gun to be my legacy. Whenever someone puts together a ‘Top 50 Weapons in Video Games’ there’s like the Halo sword, the Lancer, like it’s there with everything else, like Doom BFG and that’s really flattering, but a lot of these kids who have only been playing games for the last however many years, they think that’s the only thing I ever did.”
Cliff Bleszinski has previously worked on other titles, like Bulletstorm, Unreal Tournament and Jazz Jackrabbit.
The developer left Epic Games in October and he has not joined another developer yet.
