Cliff Bleszinski

After the Easter holidays, the gaming industry is preparing to experience a month of April 2021 full of interesting releases, waiting to find out what awaits us in the coming months of the year. There are already several experiences that enthusiasts cannot wait to discover, and to these he is going to add a new one. Cliff Bleszinski, the creator of the Gears of War saga has recently announced that he is working on a new project, and we can't wait to find out what it is.

To announce the good news is Cliff Bleszinski himself was via a recent post posted on Twitter. The American author had drifted away from the gaming industry some time after releasing Lawbreakers, his multiplayer title which unfortunately failed to make it into the spotlight at all. The return of Gears of War's dad now seems closer, although the information we have been given at the moment is still sparse.

“Yes, if you were wondering, I'm working on something new”, thus begins Cliff Bleszinski in his latest post published on Twitter. "You should know that every day it is distressing not to be able to talk about it", concludes the videogame author, leaving us on the one hand with good news that marks his return to the industry, while on the other hand he leaves us momentarily on our toes without telling us anything 'more of this new project.

And, yes, for the record, I'm working on some new stuff, and you should know every damned day it's agonizing to not talk about it.

Deal with it. Love y'all.

Bleszinski has devoted a great deal of time to responding to the various comments that his latest post has generated, and under one of them he confirmed that his beloved chainsaws will not be present in this new project. In another comment, the well-known developer Rami Ismail lets us know that he saw the project in a call on Zoom and is looking forward to updates after being captivated.

Gears Of War Designer Cliff Bleszinski Teases New Project, Doesn't Involve Chainsaws

Veteran game developer Cliff Bleszinski is still cooking up new ideas. The Gears of War designer said on Twitter that the wait to announce the new project has been 'agonizing.'

'And, yes, for the record, I'm working on some new stuff, and you should know every damned day it's agonizing to not talk about it,' he said. 'Deal with it. Love y'all.'

Bleszinski did not elaborate further on the new project, but he confirmed in a reply on Twitter that it doesn't involve chainsaws. This is a reference to the Lancer from Gears of War, which has a chainsaw attached to it; it's synonymous with Gears of War.

Also on Twitter, Bleszinski said he had a Zoom meeting with games industry consultant Rami Ismail about this new project. Ismail replied of the new project, 'It's so good that I need updates.'

Looks like we're going to have to wait a little while longer to find out exactly what Bleszinski is cooking up. After leaving Epic Games, Bleszinski took a break for the gaming industry but returned to start a new studio, Boss Key, which released LawBreakers in 2017. The game struggled to find an audience, and Boss Key would later shut down.

Bleszinski is now writing a memoir about his life and career in gaming, and he's also staying busy with his investments in local Raleigh, North Carolina businesses and in theater. He co-produced the Broadway musical Hadestown, which won eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical and Best Original Score.
