Former Epic Games director Cliff Bleszinski speaks about forming a studio and creating a new IP, 'BlueStreak'
Ever since Cliff Bleszinski suddenly left Epic Games in October after 20 years with the developer, the question that has hovered around the Gamersphere has been: what will he do next? For a while, he's been around talking with other developers, and has even offered to 'fix' Resident Evil with Capcom.
However, the question remains: what next?
Speaking on the G4 show X-Play, Bleszinski finally provided an answer and revealed that he has considered starting a new studio. Regarding this, he said that it's "not a matter of if, it's a matter of when and with who," adding that he would "trust the process" with the developers and let them do what they want.
"When you start a studio, you want to have a philosophy for the overall studio as far as the pillars the studio is founded on," he said. "Then you also have good game design philosophy. Honestly, I just want to create an environment where people can pan for gold, because you don't always have the best idea at first."
"You kind of have to trust the process and the people in that process, and don't self-doubt," Bleszinski added. "Game developers and game designers are so good at second-guessing and questioning each other. I just want to pan for gold while also having faith in the process."
On Twitter, Bleszinski also revealed along with his plans for a new studio, he is also working on a new idea that he has codenamed 'BlueStreak'.
