Gears Of War Designer Cliff Bleszinski Pondering New Studio, AAA Return


Gears of War driving force and former Epic Games Design Director Cliff Beszinski has revealed he is actively considering starting up a new venture. Bleszinski left Epic in October after setting the wheels in motion for the storied developer’s new IP, Fortnite. However, the biggest consideration in setting up a new studio, beside whether to go indie or AAA is the challenge of building a competitive team.

“I want to be creative in some sort of fashion,” he stated in a VentureBeat interview. “I’m a pretty smart designer who has a good sense and a good track record, but unless I’m surrounding myself with my Avengers, I’m useless.”

“The thing is, I would want to get back to the triple-A space eventually, but the last thing I would want to do – and no offence meant to Curt Schilling [38 Studios] and John Romero [Ion Storm] – is to do what those guys did: ‘Let’s throw 300 bodies at it! Sure, we’ll just make it work!’
