I’ll tell you what we’re not going to do—we’re not gonna be making a Wii game, we’re not going to be doing an Xbox Live game, we’re not going to be doing Jazz Jackrabbit, we’re not going to be doing a fucking puzzle game, and we’re not going be making a Gears of War RTS.

I’ll tell you what they ARE doing:
They’re finding an Unreal Tournament model they can do some minor modifications to so they can have a main character.

PT32 on 14 Nov 2008 at 03:46

That’s a (-)’ing stupid…
I think Cliffy’s overreacting. It can’t possibly be true…..

You guys need to grow up…

master sven on 14 Nov 2008 at 10:04

Seems like he’s talking about ‘ at the moment’

Slaz on 14 Nov 2008 at 15:34

Really, this was known for a long time.. And this doesn’t even mean Cliff dislikes the Jazz games, in fact, after the release of GoW1 back in 2006 he stated the name ‘Jazz Jackrabbit’ various times in interviews involving ‘past successes’ in his job.

PT32 on 15 Nov 2008 at 05:42

Yeah, seriously!
I think he was just a bit heated. He can’t possibly have been serious.

master sven on 15 Nov 2008 at 09:01

If there will be a new Jazz Jackrabbit Epic will probably only licence it, but another company will make it. (Jaleco)

cooba on 15 Nov 2008 at 11:48

Jaleco was only the producer for the JJA game by Game Titan (who already announced that they won’t make a new Jazz game)

CrimiClown on 15 Nov 2008 at 17:23

… finally some of us see the light.

nakke on 15 Nov 2008 at 21:56

Wait what, somebody was thinking they’d make a new Jazz game? Seriously?

Slaz on 15 Nov 2008 at 22:21

Wasn’t some kind of indie company making a ‘rebirth’ of the Jazz3 project? Nah it’s not like an easy thing to consider pushing good old Jazz from the shareware market to the next-gen world.. Still I’d like to see it happen.

PT32 on 16 Nov 2008 at 02:36

We all would.
Say, why don’t we have a petition-have everybody sign their name on it-and send it to Cliff asking him to at least work on JJ3 [if only to allow Ambesoft to do it]. I can draft it and have it ready within a day.
Sound good? I will post it in rabbitjournal if people want it. [hint hint: admins, push it to front page when it is written =)].

PT32 on 16 Nov 2008 at 02:50

the petition is written, pm me if you want to have your name written on it. I will send you the petition.

Vegito on 16 Nov 2008 at 12:22

Seriously, that you even believed there would be a jj project still alraedy is sad ;\

Jindo on 16 Nov 2008 at 15:10

I thought everyone knew that Epic weren’t making anymore Jazz D;.

as previously said, if Jazz is ever made again, it won’t be by Epic.

Nonomu198 on 16 Nov 2008 at 17:59

Epic Fail.

Viva la rabbit!

Stijn on 16 Nov 2008 at 19:15

nakke, it wouldn’t be the first time an old series gets resurrected, though with Epic’s new focus on testosterone-fueled hulk shooters it’s unlikely they’ll be the ones to develop it.

I could imagine them licensing the franchise to another developer though, there is certainly a market for games about fluffy animals, and it would make for a decent Xbox Live Arcade game I guess.

Lark on 18 Nov 2008 at 16:45

honestly, a third jazz game would only ruin a classic series. that’s just my opinion though.

STMVK Allana on 18 Nov 2008 at 18:57

All you uses drugs allot =P

MC on 19 Nov 2008 at 04:18

I found an article that says Cliff “seemed to imply it involved Jazz getting into trouble with the Turtle Mafia, suggesting that his concept for Jazz Jackrabbit 3 is completely different from the version Dean Dodrill was working on in 1999.”

(from http://www.videogamesblogger.com/2008/05/29/a-new-jazz-jackrabbit-3-still-in-cliffybs-plans.htm)

MC on 19 Nov 2008 at 04:27

Does anyone know what the ‘Jazz 3 Revived’ Project idea for Jazz3 is? And then what was Dean Dodrill’s idea?

~[GpW]NinjA on 19 Nov 2008 at 10:37

Damn, guys. Jazz Jackrabbit was CliffyB’s big break… There’s no way he hates Jazz Jackrabbit. He would love to see a new Jazz Jackrabbit, but there’s no way publishers would think it was worth it.

spejsboi on 19 Nov 2008 at 13:29

no new jazz? o shocking

DennisKainz on 20 Nov 2008 at 10:08

The Jazz Jackrabbit cast is a bunch of doofus. I hate them.

~[GpW]NinjA on 20 Nov 2008 at 13:00


nakke on 20 Nov 2008 at 19:57

Stijn, I didn’t mean that it would be totally impossible. But IMO it’s still far too optimistic to hope for a JJ game from Epic.

Unhit on 21 Nov 2008 at 18:48

pretty clever not to do a rts though, couldnt beat wc3 (or compete with sc2) anyway (y)

Ron97 on 22 Nov 2008 at 15:37

So what,no new JJ. I mean,if they really wanted to make it they would finish JJ3 or make patches for JJ2…. =(

DennisKainz on 25 Nov 2008 at 09:11

Please, Epic, give all the rights of Jazz Jackrabbit production to Naughty Dog. They will surely make it a great game and not disappoint all of the fans around the world.
Epic: 2 Jazz Jackrabbit
Naughty Dog: Crash Bandicoot 1-3, crash of the titans, team racing, tag team racing, Twinsanity and more.

cooba on 25 Nov 2008 at 11:17

Epic: Epic Pinball, Jazz Jackrabbit 1, Jazz Jackrabbit 2, Unreal, Unreal Tournament, Unreal Tournament 2004, Unreal Tournament 3, Gears of War, Gears of War 2, and more….

PT32 on 26 Nov 2008 at 04:36

We should make our own JJ3 game.
Wouldn’t that be something?
J2O Games presents…
Jazz Jackrabbit 3D!!


SPAZ18 on 26 Nov 2008 at 11:00

That would take YEARS to make.

FawFul on 26 Nov 2008 at 15:05

in those years i am trying frustrating to learn things and “try” that, then i would Die anyway because i am getting to old.. or a sudden heart attack by frustration :l

DennisKainz on 27 Nov 2008 at 10:33

We should use “Blender 2.48” to make JJ3.

~[GpW]NinjA on 1 Dec 2008 at 10:44

You guys are a joke.
