After a rather lengthy hiatus, Cliff Bleszinksi is ready to start making games again. Word of his impending return after nearly two years of absence comes directly from his personal Twitter, of all places, and he seems to have more information to share in the week ahead.
Aside from being lead designer for the first three Gears of War games, Bleszinksi (popularly known as "CliffyB" for a time) also had a rather memorable personality that helped propel his celebrity status within the industry. In 2012, however, he announced plans to step away from the gaming industry and development, as well as his departure from Epic Games. Pretty crazy news, at the time.
At any rate, you can read the message Bleszinksi posted below. Apparently we're not supposed to call this his "comeback."
I'm officially coming out of retirement to make video games again. Stay tuned here for details in the next 7 days! #DontCallItAComeback— Cliff Bleszinski (@therealcliffyb) June 30, 2014
