Cliff Bleszinski is leaving Epic Games, a company he co-founded and has been working with for 20 years. Most recently, he held the title of Design Director. “I’ve been doing this since I was a teenager, and outside of my sabbatical last year, I have been going non-stop,” Bleszinski said in a letter to colleagues, a selection of which Epic posted on its website. “I literally grew up in this business, as Mike [Capps] likes to say. And now that I’m grown up, it’s time for a much needed break.” Neither Bleszinski nor Epic said what the next step would be; Epic refers only to his plan “to chart the next stage of his career.” Read the full story at Joystiq.
