Cliff Bleszinski teases with series of enigmatic tweets

Tuesday, 23rd October 2012 00:43 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Gears of War creator Cliff Bleszinski left Epic earlier this month, and we’re all agog to find out where he lands next. He’s not making it easy to guess though, with EA, Activision, Double Fine, Zynga and more on the watch list.

Bleszinski seems to be taking a well-earned vacation on the West Coast, and has dropped in at a number of companies on his tour. In a series of tweets from Bleszinski and friends, the rock star designer has teased (and probably occasional horrified) fans with the prospect of his potential employment at some of the locations visited.

So far, we’ve seen Bleszinski at Double Fine; Zynga (to which Double Fine’s Tim Schafer reacted unhappily); EA (several industry insiders didn’t seem pleased by this prospect either); Activision; Disneyland; and special effects company Zoic Studios.

Bleszinski’s only comment regarding these stops is that they were all “interesting”; Disneyland seems to have captured him the most, but seems the most likely to be a holiday snap. Speculation is fun, isn’t? All the best for Bleszinski wherever he settles next; don’t keep us waiting too long.

    Damn, it must be really awesome to fly around to different humongous companies, knowing that you almost have full control over where you’re going to work next.

    I’m curious to see what he works on next. My bet is that it’s something different from what he’s been doing (Warren Spector, anyone?).

    Don’t forget that Cliffy started out as a SMBros. fan.

    I hope he works for Disney. They have been putting out some super interesting tech videos and this could be the link they need to make some interesting games out of it.

    i’d loose all my respect for him if he’d join Zynga.

    I dunno that this has anything to do with where he’s going to work next, he’s taking suggestions for where to visit on twitter.

    “we’re all agog to find out where he lands next” No, not really.
