“Kick ass news” coming “very soon” from CliffyB [Update]

Tuesday, 26th January 2010 07:25 GMT By Johnny Cullen


Update: Sorry to burst your balloon, but this might be what he’s referring to.

Original Story: Epic Games’ Lead Designer Cliff Bleszinski has tweeted some “kick ass” news” is coming very soon.

Is this the “awesome shit”?

He tweeted:

Kick ass news soon. VERY soon. Watch this space…

Bleszinski said back at the start of the month that he was working on “awesome shit” which wil be revealed “when the weather’s warm”.

That obviously screems E3 [E3 takes place between June 15-17 - JC], but last night, Microsoft announced the return of their X event series, with X10 to be held in San Francisco on February 11.

2+2=5, etc.

So far, Epic hasn’t stated what its next big project is internally since Gears of War 2 released.

Gears of War 3 was previously thought to be coming out in the next generation of consoles, according to Epic president Mike Capps.

He swiftly retracted his comments, saying if Gears 3 comes, it’ll be this gen.

Shadow Complex, based on the Ender’s Game novel written by Orson-Scott Card, was released last year by Epic, but was developed at Chair Entertainment.

Epic also has a project in the works from the company’s Poland-based studio People Can Fly, which is currently only known as Bulletstorm, which will be published by EA.

Thanks, tLG.

    Gears of War 3, release date autumn 2011.
    They seem to alternate between a “gears year” and a “halo year”.

    If it’s “very soon” then that screams X10 rather than E3 doesn’t it, Johnny? :-)

    Gears 3 announcement on Feb 11th, then. Bound to be.

    Gears 3 or Shadow Complex 2, either way it’s definitely “awesome shit” and “kick ass” in my book.

    Gears 3 for fall 2010? Man, that would make it one busy year for action shooters.

    It’s got to be Gears 3, EOY 2010. Should be a good year for Microsoft, after a rather tame 2009. Natal, ME 2, Halo Reach, Gears 3, Alan Wake, Fable III, Splinter Cell Conviction. They’ll need more too so I hope for them they have a few yet unannounced surprises.

    Billy cliff is a loser and I hate epic games. Billy cliff is nothing more than a console fan boy.I seen his list of games favorite games. Billy cliff’s favorite games nothing more than console games. Gears of war is not a great sorry compared to games like Crysis.

    As for epic games they have proven they don’t care about their consumers. Epic games is one of the biggest lairs in the Industry. They also go about trashing pc gaming. I don’t know why they are apart of the pc gaming allaince.

    Oh wait they need modders to help them sell their engine. At the same time abuse the very pc gaming comunity that made them.

    Shadow Complex is based on the novel Empire, not Ender’s Game.
