Cliff Bleszinski Accuses Epic Of Poaching Boss Key Staff
Cliff Bleszinski, former Epic video games design director and co-founder of Boss Key Productions, has publicly accused Epic of hiring away Boss Key team of workers.
The accusation came from this tweet, the place the Boss Key head wrote “Howdy @epicgames, may you please forestall looking to rent away my staff? We simply introduced @Radical_Heights on #UE4 and are actually proud of the way it’s going.” The tweet features a gif of actor Jensen Ackles pointing on the digicam and announcing “No longer cool!”
Bleszkinski then adopted up with another tweet, announcing “There is room at this style for various video games SMH.”
It’s unclear who particularly Bleszkinski is regarding in those tweets, however a literal studying of the tweets is that Epic is hiring away folks operating on Radical Heights, Boss Key Productions’ early get right of entry to combat royale recreation to paintings on their very own mega-popular combat royale identify, Fortnite.
Radical Heights launched as an early get right of entry to identify this previous week. You’ll watch us playing the game just after it became playable right here.
Whether or not Epic is or is not hiring away Boss Key team of workers, bringing it up on public social media feels needless. I’m not sure if it is a line within the sand or intended to engender sympathy however it does not actually accomplish both.
