CliffyB requests that Epic stop hiring away his Radical Heights team

4.5
Cliff Bleszinski has hit Twitter this evening with a tweet indicating that he’s unhappy with Epic Games trying to steal his employees.

CliffyB’s new battle royale game Radical Heights launched this week, and although it’s still very early in development and is very rough, it could turn out to be promising as far as battle royale games go. Radical Heights is competition for Fortnite, but it’s nowhere near close the same level of polish at this stage.

However, both are quite cartoony and quirky and the main difference is that Radical Heights is on Steam and still early in development. Fornite, on the other hand, is more polished and still improving but it’s also not on Steam and has still managed to pull in a huge audience.

It’s hard to tell if this is an attention seeking publicity stunt or not but CliffyB appears to be quite happy to air his views on this subject publically.

Ye Fortnite is just salty......Need new ideas


Lmao radical heights is trash


That's your opinion lol.. I'm not sure everyone would agree on that one. Is kinda a crappy move to make but its competition.. he should be offering his team better money but i suppose you can't really compete.. Kinda pathetic that the developers and people behind the scenes in the gaming industry only care about money...


IMO the game runs really bad. Even with a 1080 and a 1700 it can drop below 60 frames which running a 144hz monitor is bad. Ill prefer fortnite for the time being hopefully the game can run better within the upcoming months.

and to the guy above, if epic is offering a better job you best believe people will jump on it. Im not sure if you work but I left my old job for a job with more money. Its how the world works. Money is what drives people. Programmers develop the game, they dont care who they work for as they have no ties to it besides the job.

Can't blame the guy, I'd also be annoyed if your biggest rival in the battle royale game genre were trying to hire my team.

He can ask them, but ultimately its up to those employees and i imagine epic pays more or atleast has more job security
