CliffyB Says He’s “Officially” Returning to Video Games

Cliff “CliffyB” Bleszkinski has announced that he will be returning to game development.

Speaking on Twitter, the famous developer revealed that his departure from the game industry, which began in 2012, was coming to an end.

“I’m officially coming out of retirement to make video games again,” he said. “Stay tuned here for details in the next 7 days.”

Bleszinski, of course, is the designer behind the Gears of War franchise and, just generally one the more outspoken personalities making video games. For instance, despite his “retirement” he still wrote a passionate letter to fellow game maker Phil Fish following his infamous implosion on Twitter. He has also, in the past, spoken out against used games as well as a variety of other issues falling under the umbrella of the games industry. We can only imagine that gamers, in turn, will be eager to see what Bleskinski’s re-entrance will entail.

I’m surprised his disparaging remarks about PC gamers wasn’t mentioned, like when he tried to infer that anyone capable of building their own gaming PC will likely pirate games instead of buying them.

Dude is a grade-A douche wad that hates on PC gamers every chance he gets.

Wake me up when someone relevant makes a new game.

I can’t get too excited about Cliff (or anyone, really) coming out of retirement. People these days seem to “retire” when they mean “take a vacation” — or just to make more of a splash when they return.

What a Narcissist.
