LawBreakers and Gears of War creator Cliff Bleszinski has announced his next step after leaving games is a venture into theater. The veteran designer has signed a co-production deal for a musical titled Hadestown, coming March 2019.
After revealing that he's done with the gaming industry for the third time, Cliff Bleszinski decided the next step in his career. And no, he's not joining any development studios and he surely isn't making another game after the whole Boss Key fiasco.
Instead, Cliff is taking a totally different route and will put his production skills on test in the theatre buissnes. To be more specific, Bleszinski announced that he will be co-producing an upcoming Broadway musical, Hadestown. He further clarified that he's filling the investor position within the production team.
Hadestown is based on an opera album by Anais Mitchell and the story is an adaptation of the Greek myth of Orpheus and Eurydice. As the name suggests, it's set in Hades where Orpheus sets on a journey to save Eurydice.
How Bleszinski will handle this new endevour remains to be seen, as he brought up his love of theater on many occasions. Cliff admited that he gets quite emotional when watching musicals and even struggles to hold back his a tear at times.
Well, hopefully, he finds his peace on Broadway and gets away from the "toxic culture" which is his description of gamers and the gaming industry. Fans of Gears of War and Unreal would probably love to see him work on games again but this could indeed become a third-time-lucky retirement for CliffyB.
