Cliff Bleszinski may not be taken as seriously as he deserves to be, simply because of how outspoken he can be, but the man is a veritable genius of a game developer. He was behind the Unreal and Gears of War series, and now, after departing from Epic Games, he is working on a new game- a new PC exclusive shooter in the vein of Quake.

Talking on the latest Pointless podcast, he described his newest project:

“I have a pitch, I have concept art, I know pretty much what I wanna do.  It will be a PC experience that will harken back to a certain type of game that we cut our teeth on, if you know what I’m saying.

“[I want to do] a first-person shooter. It’s in my DNA. It’s one of those things – a lot of these kids playing Call of Duty, I don’t think they’d know what a proper arena shooter is if it’d hit them across the fucking head.

“I want to get funding, I don’t want to do a Kickstarter. With the speed and style of the title, it would not be a good fit for the [Oculus] Rift. I can confirm that,” he added, when questioned about supporting two of the newest trends in PC gaming.

“I’ve shown [the project] to various parties, and there are nibbles. I wanna do something. It’s just I’m not gonna do it if the time is not right and if the funding’s not right.”

Can Cliffy B usher in the return of the age of the arena shooter? One can only hope.
