Clifford Bleszinski - he of Gears of War fame has announced the name of his new game. Or rather in management-speak his new "Intellectual Property". "Bleszinski" and "Intellectual" in the same sentence. You read it here first. Anyway...
“My first Transformer was Bluestreak" says Mr B,"which was later changed to Silverstreak or something like that - which is the codename of the new IP I’m gestating on slowly.”
He let this factoid rip on G4TV during an interview in which he also turned his back on his greatest achievement:
“I don’t want the chainsaw gun to be my legacy,” he claims heart-breakingly. “Whenever someone puts together a Top 50 Weapons in Video Games," he moans on, "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."
So, what you gonna do? “Moving forward I would like to work on something new and fresh and kinda redefine my legacy.Steven Spielberg didn’t want to be known for just E.T right, so he made a lot of different kinda things.”
Yes indeedy, Mr B just compared himself to Steven Spielberg...Huge hat-tip to Xbox360Achievments for the transcription.
