Ubisoft Headhunting Cliff Bleszinski (RUMOR)

Ever since gaming legend Cliff Bleszinski announced his departure from Epic Games in early October, the industry has been speculating where Cliffy B would be heading next. Some recent tweets by the former Gears and Unreal developer suggest that he is being courted by Ubisoft and that he’s met with them to discuss things further.

The first tweet read:

While that tweet alone could have been viewed as joke — as many believed to be the case — Bleszinski went on to tweet photographic evidence to back up his claim:

A later tweet confirmed that Bleszinski was meeting with Ubisoft for dinner, as well as Quantic Dream Founder and CEO David Cage:

If Bleszinski joins Ubisoft, what new IP can we expect? Assassin’s Gears?

I would feel like such a badass if a company ever tried to recruit me like that. Only thing that could have made it better would be having some euro babe with a hot accent delivering it to me at the hotel bar.

I’d probably see how far I could take this recruitment. It would be interesting to see how many free meals one could get before companies asked for an answer. I’d also half-expect the phone to self destruct after it was used.
