Life after Epic: Getting to know Cliff Bleszinski

You might hate Cliff Bleszinski for his beautiful Barbie-doll wife and his hot-rod Lamborghini that costs more than most people’s annual salaries. But you’ve probably spent more than a few hours of your life totally lost in games like Unreal Tournament and Gears of War — games that he helped create.

But right this instant, Bleszinski isn’t creating anything. He recently left Epic Games, his employer for the last two decades — yes, he started there when he was 17 — back in October 2012. No doubt, he’s up to something (more on that in part two of our exclusive interview tomorrow — we didn’t cut much, don’t worry). But for now, he’s content to talk to GamesBeat about his past career and persona, what went right and wrong with Gears of War, and kids these days.

Is this the first big Cliff interview since he left Epic?

I hate Cliff Bleszinski for his beautiful Barbie-doll Lamborghini and his hot-rod wife that costs more than most people’s annual salaries. Wait, what?

Awesome! Love the responses to these questions.

Never understood the hate for this guy.

It's possible that some of the MS hate was misdirected at him. Among other things i'm sure.

He made a very successful franchise (gears) so it's natural he will get hate. Te guy makes good games, he's a great guy, appreciates other deelopers and would invite them to epic. He's a great dev just like Jaffe.

Exactly. I like the guy. He's honest and clearly has a passion for what he does. Also, he's very good at what he does. Respect to him for what he has achieved. Also, his wife had her own Counter Strike server? Where can I find a fit wife who plays games?!
