Former Epic Games design director Cliff Bleszinski has revealed his new project goes by the codename Silverstreak, and that his future projects will be different to what we've seen him do before.

"My first Transformer was Bluestreak - which was later changed to Silverstreak or something like that - which is the codename of the new IP I'm gestating on slowly," Bleszinski told G4TV.

He later added: "I don't want the chainsaw gun to be my legacy."

"Whenever someone puts together a 'Top 50 Weapons in Video Games' there's like the Halo sword, the Lancer, like it's there with everything else, like Doom BFG and that's really flattering.

"But a lot of these kids who have only been playing games for the last however many years, they think that's the only thing I ever did. They forget about Jazz Jackrabbit, Unreal Tournament that I worked on, things like Bulletstorm, a little bit on Shadow Complex and things like that.

"Moving forward I would like to work on something new and fresh and kinda redefine my legacy.

"Steven Speilberg didn't want to be known for just E.T right, so he made a lot of different kinda things."
