Cliff Bleszinski, design director known for his creative work on the Gears of War and Unreal Tournament, has departed Epic Games. In an EpicGames.com blog post, Bleszinski seems to hint he may be leaving the industry outright.

"I’ve been doing this since I was a teenager, and outside of my sabbatical last year, I have been going non-stop. I literally grew up in this business," Bleszinski said. "And now that I’m grown up, it’s time for a much needed break. I will miss the projects, the playtests, the debates, and most importantly, the people."

Epic Games stated, "During the past two decades, Cliff has helped shape many successful games that have captured the imaginations of millions of players around the world. We are grateful for his influence on Epic’s legacy, from the wild adventures “Jazz Jackrabbit” to the visceral combat of “Gears of War.”"

Bleszinski joins the growing list of Epic departures. Earlier this year, Epic Games' subsidiary People Can Fly saw creative top-bosses depart the company as well. Following that, Epic's director of production Rod Fergusson left Epic to work on BioShock Infinite.

Bleszinski ranked 40 on IGN's Top 100 Game Creators of All Time.

Look at it this way....now that the top guns are leaving Epic, the second tier guys may be given an opportunity to rise in the industry. These guys have also been working hard on the games over the years and deserve an opportunity.

Yeah Jazz Jackrabbit. All those floppy disks (they were floppies right?) I collected over endless hours :wub:
If God comes up with a contest, win it and i will spare the world in 2012, we will let Solitaire take part in it, rest assured we are safe.

My guess is that he will be forming a company with People Can Fly guys. I hope they dont go on and create Mobile only games.

Fine by me. Gears went downhill under him. Let someone else take charge of that franchise before it becomes a total mess.

Perhaps the world is not made. Perhaps nothing is made. A clock without a craftsman. It's too late. Always has been, always will be.....too late.

Gears will become total mess without him and Rod... Original Gears was his idea and design.He is the reason Gears franchise exist.. ..

Yup. But the original founders left last month or a month before that. So he can form a company with them. PCF are a talented bunch.
