Your PAX East 2012 Keynote Speaker: Mr. Cliff Bleszinski

That’s the news coming from the Penny Arcade yesterday, where Tycho also announced the musical lineup for the March convention.

Bleszinski has been pretty quiet since announcing his departure from Epic back in October. For 20 years he was a fixture at the “Gears of War” and “Unreal” developer, and some of us have been curious what he’s been planning for his next act. His presence at PAX would at least indicate he’s not taking a full leave of the game industry like the BioWare doctors, but beyond that, he’s been keeping his head pretty low.

I wouldn’t expect to hear a full-on announcement during Bleszinski’s keynote, but it might give us some insight into what he’s been thinking about for the last few months.

PAX East will take place March 22-24 in Boston. You can get more details here.
