    Can't say I saw this one coming. Rest...or, take break in peace.

    It was weird when Rod decided to leave. Now things are kind of scary, yet hopeful at the same time. The guys responsible for the SO/Retro aren't involved anymore so hopefully things can move in a different direction.

    I honestly cannot believe this.

    But, congratulations Cliff and good luck to you on your future, you made great games and made a lot of people happy with your creativity that you put into your games. Thank you.

    Am I allowed to cry? I guess its good I got to meet him twice in the highlight years. I hope Epic can still continue to churn out amazing games! I have no doubt, however with Cliff and Rod gone....something will be missing.

    Surprised by this news, I alway's thought Cliff would be here for the next few years at least. Sad to see him leave too, even if it's a 'break' as he says.

    Well then,

    Good Game Epic, it was tons of fun while it lasted.
    One of those times when you realize what happened in all of those years.
    I don't know what else to say, I'm just shocked.

    I remember when Rod left I made a post saying, "Now what next?! We'll be reading about Cliffy B leaving!"

    And now I'm incredibly sad to see this.

    He was and is really something Unreal, not only for Epic but for all the VG industry!

    Good luck to whatever it's next!!

Apparently you can report spam and spam is frowned upon but here EPIC are, rewarding the spammers.

    Cliff I just want to say thank you for everything that you have done for the gaming universe. Without you and everyone at Epic Games there would not have been an E-Day 2006. Thank you again and good luck on your new adventure, hope its bigger and better and more bad ass than the first one.
