Ever since PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds gained popularity, games like Fortnite quickly adopted the "Battle Royale" genre. Now there are numerous such titles out there, with Cliff Bleszinski's "Radical Heights" being the latest entry in an increasingly crowded market.
Bleszinski left Epic Games many years ago and, after a brief hiatus, formed Boss Key Productions. At Epic Games, Bleszinski worked on the Gears of War franchise. Radical Heights is the studio's second game after "LawBreakers". LawBreakers failed to gain a significant following so Bleszinski hopes Radical Heights will be different due to its free-to-play nature. LawBreakers was supposed to be a free-to-play game but the business model changed closer to launch.
During a conversation between Bleszinski and various Xbox executives on Twitter, the developer expressed the desire to bring the game over to Microsoft's console. Bleszinski wrote, "We want it on Xbox 😉👍". To this Mike Ybarra, Microsoft's Corporate Vice President of Gaming, responded that it was quite easy to publish any game on Xbox One.
Let's hope that Radical Heights makes its way to Xbox One because the latest Steam statistics are rather troubling. The title peaked at over 12,000 gamers a few days after launch, but now the player count is down over 80 percent to around 2,000. Hopefully the hypothetical Xbox One launch will give it a much-needed boost. The title seems like a perfect fit for Xbox Game Preview.
