Currently unemployed Gears of War game developer Cliff Bleszinski has received a package containing a phone apparently sent from Ubisoft. While enjoying his ongoing break from the industry, the former Epic Games design director tweeted ‘Hotel called my room. A package for me? Inside? A fully charged phone with one # programmed and the Ubisoft logo on the backdrop. Now what?’ Obviously, pics or didn’t happen, so...
Cliffy later said he would call the number and tell them: ‘I do have a very particular set of skills; skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me an asset for people like you.’
Cliffy B left his job as design director at Epic Games at the start of October, saying it was time for “a much needed break”.
Could this be a job offer from Ubisoft? Could Cliffy B be coming back to games? Was the package even delivered to the right room? Perhaps it’s all part of some completely pointless hoax?
