He even helped create the Fallout series’ most iconic character, Vault Boy! Tramell brings with him years of high-profile game development experience, and we’re happy to have him as XPO’s keynote speaker. Boss Key Studio was founded in 2014 by veteran developer Cliff Bleszinski, the man behind Unreal, Unreal Tournament, Gears of War, and Jazz Jackrabbit. Boss Key’s first game will be Lawbreakers, an intense multiplayer shooter that has become one of the most highly anticipated games of 2016. (@PS_TRay)
