Famed game designer Cliff Bleszinski has had a good run in the game industry over the years, most notably having created the Unreal and Gears of Wars franchises. But earlier this year, his development studio, Boss Key Productions, was forced to shut down due to low sales of its game, Lawbreakers.
While he initially mentioned in a Twitter statement (which has since been removed) that he'd be stepping away from games for a bit to focus on his family, Bleszinski appears to have changed his mind about ever coming back now.
In a new tweet today, he responded to another Twitter user saying that he would never make another game again. The comment was made in reference to the other user's disappointment about Boss Key not refunding fans after Lawbreakers (and the studio as a whole) shut down. Bleszinski also reveals in the tweet that he paid employees' salaries, 401Ks, and their healthcare for months after the studio had folded so that they could care for their families.
Of course, this doesn't mean Bleszinski couldn't change his mind about the industry sometime in the future, but it does appear that he won't be making any games anytime soon.
Are you surprised that Cliff Bleszinski doesn't want to create any more games going forward?
