Cliff-Bleszinski

If you’ve ever enjoyed a game of Unreal Tournament, Gears of War or -if you’re really old- Jazz Jackrabbit, then you have Cliff Bleszinski to thank.

The 20 year design veteran worked alongside others at Epic Games up until the release of Gears of War 3 in 2012, when Cliff announced he would retire from making video games. Only two years later however, Cliff has left retirement to form a new studio Boss Key Productions and today announced the studio’s first game, a Free-to-Play Sci-Fi arena shooter codenamed “Project BlueStreak”.

It was also revealed Boss Key Productions would be teaming up with Nexon in order to publish Bluestreak through Nexon America. Outside of these details little else is known about the project. Bleszinski is quoted as saying he feels the game and its concept will “really resonate with players who have been clamoring for a new take on an old favorite” and views the move to F2P as an opportunity to reach the largest potential audience “while embracing where the industry is headed”.

A website exists for Boss Key Productions as does a Twitter account for Project BlueStreak, but neither have any additional details currently.

    The biggest douche in the AAA industry meets biggest douche in the Korean MMO industry. Sadly they are not going to have a slap fight to the death, which would be far more entertaining than what they would be capable of producing otherwise.

    I passed to other things as soon i saw nexon implied. Nexon the worst gaming company of all time

    The game that has all the mechanics of GoW, and is F2P is already out, name is: Hazard Ops
    Nexon is terrible company, they have ruined MMO RPG game Vindictus with Pay to win, heavy real money investments, RNG, and almost no support to its community what so ever.
    If they work on F2P together, it can only be disaster again, I dont trust that company anymore.

      That game is shit. It has like 4 armor sets and the game is over.

        Well, that goes to show that you have never played nor tried the game.

          played it since release, doesn’t catch my attention anymore like FFXI (since release till 7 years)did because of the lack of customization. I also played it before they revamped it so I did the whole character migration thing.

          I remember rolling around with 6 different pieces and not just one armor set. I remember when I used to have 4-5 different sets for ONE specific class. besides the cinematics, it gets boring sorry. I will wait for a couple of patches till I get back in. by then, bless and skyforge will take my life away and hopefully the publisher does not crap all over the game.

HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY?
