Permalink CliffyB to do Reddit "AMA" on Friday September 12th 2012

Source: Epic Community

Update: It’s now over. Nothing new was learned.

This Friday, at 1:30 pm EST, Epic’s Cliff Bleszinski (CliffyB, design/artwork/co-producer/adviser on various Jazz games) will be going on Reddit to do an “Ask Me Anything” session. A random participant will win a signed weapon from a dudebro game, but you’re really just reading this because we might be able to get some Jazz thoughts out of him.

At the risk of departing from description and entering into prescription: asking when we’ll see another Jazz game or why they’re not making one is unproductive. We’re covered this story in the past: CliffyB would like another game too, but Epic isn’t big enough to make one at the same time as all its other products in exchange for the limited sales they expect it’d receive. A few dozen (to be realistically optimistic) people saying they’d buy it on Reddit isn’t going to change their mind on that.

However. What they never tell us is why Jazz has never appeared on Steam or GOG, and this seems as good an opportunity as any to try to find out. Remember that JJ1 just turned 18, JJ2 will be turning 15 in a few months, and there are literally thousands of votes for the games to appear on GOG. This should basically be an opportunity for them to get money in exchange for doing hardly anything, and if we can get CliffyB’s attention, maybe he’ll talk about it.
