Who was the father of Gears of War now asks someone to save his most notorious bump
Cliff Bleszinski He is well known in the video game industry, although not only for Gears of War. The father of the Microsoft and Epic Games saga will be remembered for his outbursts, loud comparisons and excessive hype with his first great work beyond the beefy Locust-killing soldiers: LawBreakers. He hero shooterhowever, it has returned to the news 5 years later, to end in nothing, in a insurmountable legal problem.
“CliffyB”, as the creative is called in a somewhat more colloquial way, tested the ground last week by announcing that he was speaking with his lawyer about the IP. A new installment? A remake? Perhaps a triumphant return from the dead? We do not know what Bleszinski wanted to comment because the rights of the game belong to nexon and if they don’t want to it’s your decision.
In his last tweet published on Saturday about this issue, the developer announced that those intentions fell on deaf ears. “Well, it turns out that Nexon owns the rights to LawBreakers.“, he commented without much encouragement while “winking” at the CEO of Nexon, the Korean studio that published the game, to talk about LawBreakers.
With Overwatch 2 settled, but still struggling to grow its player base like the first did, resurrecting the hero shooter that it already lost when competing with that Blizzard game back in 2017 sounds like total madness. We don’t know what the plans are, behind the scenes, of the Boss Key Productions studio and “CliffyB”, but it reminds us of the case of Alice: Asylum and american mcgee.
The latter paved the way for a third installment of a license to which they did not own the rights. After entrusting himself to EA, McGee received a resounding “no” that led to a significant wave of negative comments towards the American company and the developer’s retirement after several years of “lost work”.
