The lights are on
Cliff Bleszinski left Epic Games last year, and he's already stated his plans to start another studio. But when?
In an interview with Games Industry International, Bleszinski says that it's all a matter of timing, stating that "now would be the absolute worst time to come back.
really think we're in a massive state of turmoil," he said. "I think Nintendo could
possibly be faced with the situation of becoming a company that only makes
software moving forward. I think Sony and Microsoft are about to come to major
blows. But at the same time, people love playing games on their iPad. The PC is
going through a wonderful renaissance right now. I think we're ready to do
digital download games all the time...I just want to see what happens."
Bleszinski also talked about how Sony and Microsoft need to be more nimble on things like software updates, differing price structures, and indie games.

No, not really. Different market dude, different market.
Every thing sucks because everyone just wants money now.
Cliffy B is no more than a cheerleader. I wouldn't put alot of stock in what he says.
Maybe he could call it Cliff Studios. ;-)
This guy knows what he's talking about, he made the gears if war series......
Sounds like he's just listening to all the doom and gloom news. I'm sure he just wants to get back into AAA gaming when it gets stable for developers.
Ipad games suck Cliff! I spend alot of time either playing games or researching them..I mean Ive played games like angry birds just to kill some time...but my Ipad doesnt come close to my Xbox & PS3 as far as games go. And as far as downloading, not everyone has blazing fast internet...Ive been reading where the PS4 may have instant streaming games and instant downloading of games..again, this isnt possible unless you have an amazing internet connection. But I am ready to see whats going to happen...who isnt? but I hope they keep things the way they are as far as getting physical copies of games, but it would be nice to search for a game and play the demo without any loading time at all. Cliff what you need to do is create another game similar to gears..New characters, new looks, same type of grttiness and gameplay but put it out on the next gen consoles..Maybe cross assassins creed with gears and mix in the horror of dead space...I wish I had Cliffs brain with my ideas! aaahhhahahaha!
I hope people are starting to realize what an idiot this man is.
