Cliff Bleszinski Leaves Epic

The Epic Games Website has news of the departure of Cliff Bleszinski, the design director that's long been one of the most public faces of the Unreal and Gears of War developer. The post includes kind words from his colleagues and no real indication of why this is happening besides CliffyB's comment that "itís time for a much needed break." Here's the excerpt they share from Cliffís personal note to his colleagues:

Iíve been doing this since I was a teenager, and outside of my sabbatical last year, I have been going non-stop. I literally grew up in this business, as Mike likes to say. And now that Iím grown up, itís time for a much needed break.

I will miss the projects, the playtests, the debates, and most importantly, the people. Epic only hires the best of the best, and it has been a joy working with each and every one of you on a daily basis, whether you were hired weeks ago or decades ago. I have been fortunate enough to collaborate with a variety of disciplines, from code to art to marketing and PR Ė itís been one big, rewarding learning experience. Iím confident that each project that is being built, whether at Epic, Chair, PCF, or Impossible will be top notch and will please gamers and critics alike.

Cliff, we love you. Great games. But please STOP IT with the hair dye.

Also, maybe get a shave and look at the wardrobe (but not so much you turn into a suit).

If you ignore that last part we may forgive on the basis of the original UT demo and Facing Worlds. Or maybe not.
