Cliff ‘Cliffy B’ Bleszinski joined the video game industry as a teenager and spent over twenty years working at Epic Games, playing a key role in franchises like Unreal and Gears of War. Two years ago, he suddenly and unexpectedly retired from Epic Games, taking a hiatus from the video game industry and promising a return at some point in the future. Recently he teased via Twitter that we’d receive more information on July 8, but a sneak peak of what’s to come has leaked early, as the website for his new game development studio has been discovered, complete with a link to a Twitter account for his new game.
BossKey.com was recently uncovered, and a little digging shows that Boss Key Productions was officially registered by Bleszinski back in April. The site is pretty bare for now, but it includes links to Cliff’s personal Twitter account, the Boss Key Twitter account, and a Twitter account for ‘Blue Streak,’ which we anticipate is the title, or at least working title, of his new game. We should be getting all of the answers on July 8.
