Bleszinski left Epic for 'a fresh start,' considering new IP


"I don't really want just the whole chainsaw gun to be my legacy." Former Epic employee Cliff Bleszinski's opening line during G4's X-Play program is the gist of why he left Epic Games, a company he started working for when he was 17.

"It's time for a fresh start. I'll start a new studio maybe at some point. It's not a matter of if, it's a matter of when and with who," Blezsinski says. Though he sounds anxious to get back to making video games, Bleszinski doesn't seem to have any immediate plans. "Moving forward I would hope to work on something new and fresh and kinda redefine my legacy."

It should come as no surprise that Bleszinski is working on something – famous game designer has idea for video game. When asked who his favorite Transformers character is, Bleszinski says Bluestreak, but notes later his name was changed to Silverstreak, "which is the codename of a new IP I'm gestating on slowly."
