Molyneux is a name that some outside of the gaming world may not be all that familiar with. However, inside our industry, his name is synonymous with quality. Now, we get a bit of insight into how he sees his retirement years panning out from the man himself.
On the subject of retirement, Molyneux suggest that here won’t be one. In a recent interview, he reveals, “I'm not retiring; I'm just gonna die.

When asked about the game by journalists Jason Schreier, Molyneux breaks down in an emotional pitch.

He's a gamer, and if I ever make a game where he turns around to me and says, 'You over-promised that,' it would just kill me." He struggles.
