Gears of War designer Cliff Bleszinski had a lengthy interview with IGN recently, and gave video gamers everywhere a little hope that he might be doing more before retiring. LawBreakers is first on the docket though, and Bleszinski has said his continuation with gaming does depend on how well the game does, as well as things in his personal life, the biggest being about becoming a father.


“I’m pumping the brakes on that as long as I can because as much as I love kids…they’re a lot of work. And I tell my wife, ‘What do we like right now? Video games, movies, travel, sleep, alcohol, nice dinners, time with friends.’ And from what I understand about having a child, it’s one of the most rewarding things you can do. But like I say, anything worth doing in life is work–it’s a lot of work, man.”

With all that being said, if LawBreakers does well, there might be more in store from Bleszinski, but no one knows what’s coming in the future. He made the smart move and invested in Oculus Rift in its early life, making a sizable chunk of money in the process. As far as how he feels now about retirement, it seems to be a ways off.

“I’m having too much fun [to retire]. I love pitching a weapon or a character and then seeing a sketch for it two days later. I want to see cosplayers with this game, I want to see tattoos, I want couples coming up to me telling me they met and fell in love online playing this game. That’s what gets me out of bed in the morning.”

Hopefully LawBreakers will do well, and we will have more to come from the man that brought is Gears of War. Only time will tell.
