Bleszinski: "More developers need to be known"
Former Epic Games design director Cliff Bleszinski says industry stands to benefit if "rockstars" like Ken Levine and David Jaffe get more mainstream recognition.
Outspoken former Epic Games design director Cliff Bleszinski believes developers should receive more mainstream recognition for the products they create.
"I think more developers need to be known," Bleszinski told CNN. "I think Ken Levine is a total rockstar game designer. More people should know who he is because BioShock Infinite is genius. David Jaffe; all these folks."
Jaffe was a principal designer on the original God of War and Twisted Metal games.
"And I want to get to know them and I remember as a child I wanted to know more about Shigeru Miyamoto, who's the genius behind Mario," he added. "I just think it's common sense to put these developers out there."
Bleszinski is no stranger to the public eye. He has graced the stage at various E3s throughout the years, has appeared on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, and most recently gave the keynote address at PAX East 2013.
He left Epic Games in October after 20 years with the Gears of War studio.
