CliffyB Leaving His Lancer In The Locker

After yesterday’s exciting newsconcerning Microsoft’s acquisition of the rights to the Gear’s of War franchise from EPIC, there was speculation that the series’ original mastermind, Cliff Bleszinski might make a return, either in development or consulting for the development team on the next Gears.

Cliffy B hung up his lancer, and hanging it shall remain, for now.

However Mr CliffyB is adamant the past is the past and that he shan’t be retreading old territory, “My headspace is in the future now, not the past. I have come to realize that until you give people something new to focus on they will obsess about the past. (good problem to have!)”. (source)

New developers from Vancouver, Black Tusk Studios, have some big boots to fill. Let’s all have a little faith and see if they can keep the torch burning on one of the Xbox 360’s most successful exclusive IPs.

Sam Finch

Sam has been unable to peel his bloodshot eyes and RSI-ridden wrists from the world of gaming since he was first introduced to it, like all good junkies, by his Grandad. From those early days of MegaDrive sweetness, bashing through the throngs of enemies on Shining Force II, his love of all things games has extended upwards and outwards onto a variety of platforms. You can either believe that spiel, or get the real scoop and know that his spaceship actually crashed here some years ago and he is currently incognito as a games writer for Console Monster.
