I would be lying if I said I wasn’t extremely excited by ex-Epic Games developer, Cliff Bleszinski, coming out of retirement. I’m even more excited now as we start to see his new game studio, Boss Key Productions, start to come together. Several industry veterans have reportedly signed with Boss Key, including Joshua Parker (Ubisoft) as Senior Gameplay Programmer, Ryan Palser (Neversoft) as Senior Animator, and David Rose (Neversoft) as U.I. Ninja (yes, that is his job title); Palser and Rose come from the now-closed studio who had worked on Call of Duty: Ghosts. About the new additions, Bleszinksi told GamesBeat:
“We wanted to get talented developers who worked on big franchises but who wanted to make something new”
That something new is of course Project Bluestreak, a free-to-play shooter that will have sci-fi, arena elements, which makes it sound awfully like one of Bleszinski’s old projects, Unreal Tournament. The game isn’t due out on PC till next year but Boss Key has been teasing some amazing Bluestreak concept art since the game’s announcement.
What do you think about the announcements regarding Boss Key Productions so far? Do you like the Bluestreak concept art so far? Let us know your thoughts.
