Nearly two years ago, Cliff Bleszinski, better known as CliffyB ’round these parts, left Epic Games to take a “much needed break” as he had been in the gaming industry since he was a teenager.
Fast forward to July 4 when Bleszinski has announced Boss Key Productions, a new game studio, alongside Guerrilla Games co-founder Arjan Brussee.
According to United States Patent and Trademark Office documents, the company will focus on online and downloadable titles, with the full description of the company’s services as follows:

CliffyB also posted to his Twitter account that he is going back to work “because I don’t want to be the guy who “says” things, I want to be the guy who *does* things.”
He also teased the launch of something for early next week:

We’re going to go ahead and assume it’s Boss Key’s first game announcement, but really it could be anything at this point, knowing Cliffy and his wild personality and eccentric ideas. Stay tuned!
