Gears of War skaberen Cliff 'Cliffy B' Bleszinski er ikke bange for at lade sin mening blive hørt. I et opslag på Instagram, spekulerede industri-ikonet på, hvad der fik, hans nu hedengangne studie Boss Key Productions' debut-spil til at fejle. Det multiplayer-fokuserede Lawbreakers tog aldrig rigtig fat, og Bleszinski mener, at han bragte sine egne politiske overbevisninger ind i en verden, der var blevet endnu mere opdelt og fulgte op med:
"Instead of the story being "this game looks neat" it became "this is the game with the 'woke bro' trying to push his hackey politics on us with gender neutral bathrooms." Instead of "these characters seem fun" it was "this is the studio with the CEO who refuses to make his female characters sexier." Instead of "who am I going to choose" it became "white dude shoehorns diversity in his game and then smells his own smug farts in interviews" instead of just letting the product ... speak for itself.
It's okay to be political when your company or studio is established for great product FIRST. But we were unproven and I regret doing it. (This will be quite the doozy of a chapter in the upcoming memoir.)".
Tror du, Cliff Bleszinski har ret i hans antagelser?
