If you have ever played games in the Unreal or Gears of War Series you know the name Cliff Bleszinski or “CliffyB” as many people knew him as. Today he is departing Epic as their design director to chart the next stage of his career. We are unsure of what the “next stage of his career” will be, but I’m sure we will find out in the coming months. He left a personal note to his colleagues, which we have below.
I’m sure by now you have heard of Epic Games, they are the creators of the very popular Unreal series, the Unreal Engine that powers many PC games and one of the most popular franchises on the Xbox 360, Gears of War. If you did not know Epic just turned 20 years old (damn that makes me feel old!) and decided to give away a pretty sweet soundtrack. We decided for this week’s Gaming Friday article we would a look back at the past 20 years of Epic Games.
