A blog was posted on site from Cliff saying his thoughts of him leaving the industry “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 also 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.” As people have been departing this year from Epic like People Can Fly, Rod Fergusson left to work on Bioshock Infinite & now Cliff Blenszinski. You will be missed but you left behind a great legacy.
