Gears of War creator Cliff Bleszinski has signed on to give PAX East 2013’s keynote. Penny Arcade‘s Jerry “Tycho” Holkins describes the developer as having “seen a lot of shit” and “in a very good position to handle this format”. Bleszinski has never been particularly shy about speaking his mind and having left Epic is perhaps even more likely to serve up some interesting observations on the industry. Outspoken developers are something of a PAX keynote trademark – David Jaffe’s 2011 effort was particularly memorable. PAX East takes place in Boston from March 22-24. Some passes have already sold out.
