Bleszinski Working On New Game, Don’t Want To Be Remembered By “The Chainsaw”


After he retired from Epic Games, not one believed one of the industry’s most outspoken developers would simply go sailing with girlfriends, and as it turns out, Cliff Bleszinski is working on a new game codenamed Silverstreak.

“My first Transformer was Bluestreak – which was later changed to Silverstreak or something like that – which is the codename of the new IP I’m gestating on slowly,” the former Epic Games design director told G4TV.

“I don’t want the chainsaw gun to be my legacy,” he later added.

“Whenever someone puts together a ‘Top 50 Weapons in Video Games’ there’s like the Halo sword, the Lancer, like it’s there with everything else, like Doom BFG and that’s really flattering.

But a lot of these kids who have only been playing games for the last however many years, they think that’s the only thing I ever did. They forget about Jazz Jackrabbit, Unreal Tournament that I worked on, things like Bulletstorm, a little bit on Shadow Complex and things like that.

Moving forward I would like to work on something new and fresh and kinda redefine my legacy.

Steven Speilberg didn’t want to be known for just E.T right, so he made a lot of different kinda things.”

    interested to see what he comes up with, hes always got a crazy upbeat attitude to things.
    id love to see him work on a sort of slasher game, something like saw i think it would suit him quite well.
    hes got quite a good imagination and quite twisted at times so he would do really well at that.
    maybe $ony should contract him to help out on until dawn.
