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."

Bleszinski says that many people — especially younger gamers — forget that he worked on the likes of Jazz Jackrabbit and Unreal Tournament and, "moving forward, I would like to work on something new and fresh and kind of redefine my legacy."

The developer remained tight-lipped about his plans for the future, saying that while he met with many developers and publishers after his departure from Epic he can't talk about any of it right now.

"I'll start a new studio soon maybe, at some point," he says. "It's not a matter of if, it's a matter of when and with who.
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.

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.
