Cliff Bleszinski Comeback?

A tweet from Cliff Bleszinski has word from the former Epic Games designer that he is feeling the creative itch. The Gears of War and LawBreakers creator does indicate another game design comeback is a possible outlet for this urge, but he also says it may turn out to take another direction altogether:
I need to create.

I miss it. I don't know what it will be, writing, drawing, maybe a game, but, lord, since I was a kid I loved doing it and I need to do SOMETHING again soon.

The itch is back. No promises to those of you who care. But it is soooo freeing to make, well, stuff.

How many times is Cliff-baby going to announce his return? Seems like just a few months ago this was "news"...

CliffyB is the gift that keeps on giving. I thought he retired? So he's leaving retirement... again, right, because hasn't he retired from the industry more than once?

I think the time before this last "retirement" was more of a ragequit than a retirement if I remember correctly. But yeah, he's done it a few times.

I need to create.

May I suggest finger painting or building a medieval theme park?

He would probably be good at making a decent throwback/retro FPS similar to the first Unreal, but so many developers have already done this (Amid Evil, Dusk, Ion fury, Hellbound, Prodeus, etc) that he is far too late to make something that would stick out as new.

I think he sees the insane amount of money his former company is making with Fortnite and wishes he had that kind of cash.

Jazz Jackrabbit 2 levels were pretty good. Also, I liked a lot of his Unreal maps. I would trust him to make maps and levels again, just not games.

People who start businesses or innovate usually have a different view on things. They are usually risk takers and don't listen to historical reason.

There's been correlations between this sort of mentality and mental illness. could be argued with this as well.

I'll take it easy on this guy and say

"I need to create" = "I have a burning need to spend someone else's money, lots of it, massaging my bruised ego."

If he wants to "make, well, stuff", I've read that a can of Play-Doh does wonders for people with a similar "itch."

It is well known universally that I do not make mistakes--so, if you should happen across an error in that which I have written, please be assured that *I* did not write it!...:)

Yeah. We all need to "create". Doesn't mean we're all any good at it. Try your hand at pottery or something Cliff because you don't make good games. If at first you don't succeed, try, try again. However, if you keep failing at something than it's really not your thing.

After the failure of Lawbreakers and Radical Heights I am not sure Bleszinski can make a game that anyone wants. He massively misjudged the market twice in quick succession; he might not have what it takes to be a modern day developer. I think the industry has moved on and left him behind.
