A Twitter exchange to warm your heart: Cliff Bleszinski and Evan Wells chat

Uncharted 3 and Gears of War 3 are both set to be the biggest blockbuster releases in videogaming this year, both releasing at the end of the year, and both exclusive to a single platform - both sure to be competing for your cash this holiday season.

That doesn’t mean that top developer talent working on these games can’t look forward to one another’s titles, and in a recent Twitter exchange, Epic Games’ Cliff Bleszinski (Gears of War) and Naughty Dog’s Evan Wells (Uncharted) remind us that, at heart, they’re just big ol’ videogame geeks like us.

It began when Bleszinski tweeted:

“Just caught wind that [Naughty Dog] folks are checking out [the Gears of War 3] beta. I hope not. Their asses had better be finishing Uncharted 3 for us! ;)”

This in itself is a heart-warming gesture - every gamer on the planet is looking forward to Uncharted 3, and Bleszinski is no exception!

This tweet was followed up by a reply from Naughty Dog’s Evan Wells:

“How could we not? Had a great time with it! But for now, back to work if you insist. Can we expect to see you in the [Uncharted 3] beta?”


Bleszinski is always keen to remind console war veterans that he’s just as much a gamer as anyone else and enjoys all titles across all platforms, so maybe we (READ: You) should too?

We’re desperately looking forward to both Uncharted 3 and Gears of War 3 when they release later this year! Are you?
