In a recent interview with the terminal TV segment X-Play, former Epic Games Design Director, and Gears of War figurehead had a few hints to drop about his future plans, confirming that he'll be staying in the games industry, and suggesting intentions to start a new studio (via Polygon):
"I don't want the chainsaw gun to be my legacy," he says. "It is pretty cool and whenever somebody puts together a top 50 weapons in video games and it's up there with the Halo sword and the lancer and the Doom BFG, that's really flattering, but a lot of these kids who have only been playing games for the last however many years, that's the only thing they think I ever did."The full interview with X-Play can be viewed below.
Awww, poor Cliffy B, it must be so hard making truckloads of cash and having one of the biggest game franchises ever be your legacy.
Jazz Jackrabbit was awesome.
Id be wanting to do something different to if I was being hounded by microsoft to make more gears of war
I'll start my own gaming studio, with blackjack and hookers!
^ read that in the voice of Bender.
Miss the days of UT99 and UT2004. For me UT3 was missing so much content from the other two, it was more of a tech demo for the fantastic unreal engine 3 than a proper tournament game. Myself and friends still get truckloads of play out of UT2004 at LAN, its a shame we'll probably never see another good Unreal game.
