Gears of War 3
Cliff Blesinzski Departs Epic Games
Written By
View author's profile

Epic Games' Design Director - or rather former Design Director now - Cliff Bleszinski has today announced his departure from the Gears of War, Unreal and Bulletstorm studio following 20 years helping on the development of games like Jazz Jackrabbit and the Gears franchise.

“In 20 wonderful years with Epic, Cliff Bleszinski has grown into a true design luminary, and his contributions to the ‘Unreal’ and ‘Gears’ series have helped shape the game industry into what it is today," writes Epic’s founder, CEO and Technical Director, Tim Sweeney on the Epic Games Community site. "Cliff leaves Epic with our gratitude for his many contributions, and our wishes for continued success in the next chapter of his life!”

There's more outpouring of well wishes from the likes of Epic's Vice President, Mark Rein and President Dr. Mike Capps on the site, which Bleszinski responded to with the following sign off:

"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, as Mike [Capps] likes to say. 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 only hires the best of the best, and it has been a joy working with each and every one of you on a daily basis, whether you were hired weeks ago or decades ago. I have been fortunate enough to collaborate with a variety of disciplines, from code to art to marketing and PR – it’s been one big, rewarding learning experience. I’m confident that each project that is being built, whether at Epic, Chair, PCF, or Impossible will be top notch and will please gamers and critics alike."

Lets see how 'epic' they'll be now.
Always like cliff's attitude. Seemed pretty down to earth. All the lamborghinis and tons of money's aside that is.

I just noticed that he looks like Shawn from Psych(sorry don't know his real name).

OT: I've never played any GoW games but almost everyone liked Cliff. Sad to see him go, but he'll come back.

Wow. I never thought he would leave after seeing him talk about gaming careers in one of the videos I saw(don't remember where I watched it, so sorry, I would try and link it otherwise).
Seems like a really cool guy, though. That's someone I'd wanna get a bear with.

He was one of the best at Epic. I always watched interviews from Gears of War and Bulletstorm in wich he spoke of how good they were. He said in one interview that he lost his father at a young age, and that's what makes the bond between Marcus and his father so good. You can already see where it's heading without Cliff with Gears of War Judgment. That should have done a Bulletstorm 2, a game I'm looking more forward to than another Gears of War. Gears of War 3 ended with an end, not a cliffhanger of some sort, because Cliff decided to really mark it with "a closed ending", not an "open ending".

Promises, promises...

Broken promises...

Aside from his Confederate conspiracy nutjob delusion and the fact he and Rod let Karen Traviss shit the Gears storyline down the drain, I guess he was a good guy.

I'm skeptical though, so it's about time the industry stopped the whole Miyamoto-induced idolisation of a few figures in the industry. Every game is made by a team and yet all we ever hear about are the few figureheads who are classified as "the talent". It's about time people recognised the whole team more, and speaking of growing up, it's about time jaded, opinionated reviewers stopped grasping for gravitas and recognition in their "work" by giving pretentious and "expert critiques" in a vain attempt to give themselves some semblance of style and credibility. All it ends up being is a mixture of ego-centric "I was there so I know better than anyone else" pulled out of their arse "opinions" and e-dick waving snobbery.

A shame people still attribute significance and importance to just a few "experts" in every industry as it only ever leads to disappointment for fans and "talent" alike.

Pretty interesting. Nice timeline
1. Epic Screw Gamers with the absurd achievements in Gears 3.
2. Epic announces another Gears Game being made by People Can Fly, the
makers of Bulletstorm (Good Game).
This is obvious to most, to pass the blame when no one buys the game.
3. Epic buy People Can Fly. (Meaning Gears will still be made by Epic.)
4. Executive Director, Rod Furgeson, bails on the sinking ship & goes to
work for Irrational Games. (Known for the BioShock Series)
5. The last rat leaves he sinking ship, in Cliff Blesinzski.
Possible next entry in the timeline......
6. Epic to leave Game making & just develop & sell their Engine. All Gaming
Staff to be laid off & Studios Sold or Closed.

Nice Job Epic.

Thanks Cliff, for making the game that got be back into gaming. The game that I spent 2 years playing almost non-stop, and the game that introduced me to more people I'd now call real friends, than all my years in School, Collage and University ever did. Thank you for Gears of War 1 Cliff.

@13: Sure there's more people who make a game, there's also more people that work on a movie other than the director and actors, and more people that work on a song than just singer, but who gets the credit for those? It's the same thing, only that in the games industry, those who get the credit are far more deserving of it.

well said #31

the whole set of games was by the epic team, not just by cliffyb...now he was a great guy, and has always been there or near enough when the studio made it's big games, but don't think for one minute that everything they did was down to him


personally, my favourite epic game has been shit since gears came out, well, actually it never got the sequel it was promised 10 years ago or more (where the fuck is unreal 3, and if one more clown mentions UT3 i will kill their entire family - unreal & unreal tournament are 2 different games)


hope he enjoys his break from the industry and has some good times with less stress and some family life (assuming he has family) - he'll be back no doubt, he's been doing this since he was a teenager, won't take him long to run out of things to do in real life

Anyone who thinks Epic is finished doesn't know what they are talking about. Epic games will be just fine, they have very talented development studios, Chair and PCF, and the most popular game engine that is lincensed out to a lot of publishers and developers.

@52 I agree, but isn't it weird that Rod Fergusson leaves, then Cliff leaves? Is it a sinking ship? Did they see what was coming down the pipe and bale? Epic will remain strong I'm sure and will continue to make great games but it's all so coincidental I think.

it doesnt matter that he left, if anything its a good thing cause now Cliff will just make a new company which will produce AAA titles so either way its a win win, cause i'm sure Epic wont fail just cause Cliff left the company. come on you kids honestly think He designed/coded the games himself gimme a break children. no one man could do such a thing. it would take tooooooooooo many years just for 1 game. and by the time that 1 game came out, it would probably be totally behind its times because it took so long to make.

Well when GOW1 was released, i read the comment in the manual and i said to myself.. damn he is right. I never made research about the developers, i was perfectly happy with my game. But when the fuckfest that was GOW2(online) came... things where never the same again... i was even banned... 2 times from the epic forums. The guy became full of himself, then when GOW3 was release, they added stuff player didn't want at all, but eventually the game became solid but after so many complaints, so many modifications...They did that in GOW1(update a lot) but it felt ok because it was the first game... you are allow to make mistake, but when your at your third... and the problems are not the old ones, but new one you deliberately created...well. BUT they totally fucked with people over the seriously achievement and the whole weapon skin thing was so a joke...still some people fail for it. I don't really know what to say... im a big GOW fan, i love this game even tough nothing will top my fun on GOW1, but at the same time that guy and his arrogance pissed me off badly

@4 the franchise went out the door when Judgement was announced. His career was over when Bulletstorm wasn't the next gen. Unreal Tour. he thought it would be. Considering he was basically the character base for JB in Grandmas Boy.


But I remember playin Jazz Jack Rabbit at my dads office while he wrote checks for the Union, good times. Got me into platformers.

He is hot and he is very well creator. I hope his future do well outside of being 20 years for creator of Epic Games. Good luck your future, Cliff. Thank you for bring some great games in years. Enjoy your life with family and friends also new job if you happens find in later time of your life.

Rod and Cliff want moved on their life as that understandable reasons. Why would some of you want bashing over his leaving so just respect their reasons and sometime people need moved on of their life so I would do same if I work for long time in one job. :P

Also he is only person left Epic Games so Gears of War will be same since so many people still work in Epic anyway. No need worry!!!

Gears was the best of the trilogy, campaign was awesome, the MP part was great, but I had my fill with it, especially the Horde Mode, since alot of other games used it too, it was cheap to made.

It's a shame to see him goin, great guy and all.

That new gears game coming out, yeah, that is toomuch already, and with him gone, it's over.

Hmm all the guys who actually loved making games and made good ones are leaving. They should all get together and make one super studio and show these big corporations what games are really about!

That's really bad but from his point of view, it's actually quite bad to stay in one company forever because you are not expanding your skills as a game designer... My dream is to work at epic games, im not so sure about it if he quits though...

Nothing bad to say about him. He helped make GOW1 which is easily the best multiplayer game I've played so far. Yes it had it's problems but nothing I've played so far can top it. I've met some cool people that I still play games with to this day because of it. Rest well CliffyB, you've earned it.


PS: He's kinda hot. I'm not gay but I might have to think about it if he approached me.

Wish he made another Jazz Jackrabbit, though. I'd prefer it over Gears anyday.

I read about it this morning on some other website, but that website did not post his mug shot that barely fits on the monitor. You can bring in some humour even to sad news story like this LOL

He got married like two months ago Jesus cut the dude se slack or better yet if you are bitching about how bad he is go make your own damn game. Dude was talented no doubt; 20 years with a resume to back it up.. Was he cocky? Yeah maybe...

In terms of actual game development, this probably won't affect Epic that much. It's safe to say he was just the figure head for the company and the Gears franchise.

Good luck to him, he's pretty much lived the dream of most gamers - doing a hobby for a job, made millions, landed a hot wife and now it's time for him to kick back and enjoy it all.

God speed Cliffy. Can't fault you, but I am lol-ing at the picture.

Seems like he may well be silenced now. Will be interesting to see what happens to epic now.

He has always struck me as a genuinely pleasant guy, despite all of his success - and from the interviews and dev diaries I've seen of him a wicked sense of humuor. I'm very interested to see what he moves on to now that he's left Epic.
