CliffyB would like to see Jazz on XBLA

10 Mar 2007 at 11:22

Your Favourite Jazz Jackrabbit Developer, Cliff Bleszinski (better known here as the infamous bunny suit-wearing CliffyB) has, at the 2007 Game Developers Conference, acknowledged that he’d love to see the game it all begun with back at Xbox Live Arcade, the online game distribution service of Microsoft for the Xbox 360.

“Honestly, I’d love to see it, too,” said Bleszinski, but noted that Epic is too busy to take on the task themselves. “If anybody knows a person out there that can do it for us, more power to them,” he said, stating that Epic was currently focusing on Unreal Tournament 3 and a “potential sequel” to Gears of War.

So, if your brother happens to be a game developer with some spare time, be sure to mention this to him!

Made by Epic or not, the potential new Jazz game would still have to be supervised by CliffyB to make sure it doesn’t go awry like JJA did. But then again, didn’t CliffyB once say “JJA is looking great so far”?

Nevertheless it’s still good news :)

CliffyB actually supervised JJA :P

Or at least he was credited as “Executive Producer” or “Creative Director” or something, wasn’t he?

Good news, since I own a Xbox360. Now let’s just hope there is a good developer who is up for the challenge.

Looking at the games made with XNA for the four day challenge Microsoft held, remaking the engine using XNA is probably the best option if anyone is going to take up the task

No Virtual Console, Cliffy? =(

I think the person who program the game Aran of Gurilla games said he wanted Jazz on PSN.
