OXM UK: Judgement is the "last great Gears" for current gen.
That's good to hear, but it was pretty much a given.
EPIC have so much talent why dont they make a new IP, Gears was amazing but dont milk it, a trilogy and a prequel has to be enough
I have no problem with a new Gears trilogy or standalone after Judgment. However, I want it on next-gen consoles. Even though Halo 4 looks like a huge leap forward graphically for the series, I don't think that as substantial an upgrade would be possible for the Gears franchise on current-gen hardware.
They showed a new IP a while back: Fortnite. Basically think of Gears 3 horde combined with Minecraft creation and then the enemies attack at night. I think thats a good way to describe watch the trailer. Doesnt really show much but it gets across what the games is all about. Wish it was shown at E3 though :(
Fortnite looked awesome!
That's some lame xbla thing.
Im sure they will soon. Part of it is they really only have one studio. Now they will have another one in boston though that will have people from 38 studios in it. And people can fly as well but I think it also boils down to what's popular right now. I do agree though they have immense talent and should make something new. Bulletstorm was new and great but noone really bought it. Kind of sad.
Baltimore is where those from 38 studios are going to the New Baltimore site.
I knew it started with a b. Thank you for the correction kmcroc.
Agreed: The trilogy ended perfectly with the exception of the Queen not having a complete character arc. An origin game focusing more on her rise to power and motives would be most welcome but anything else would be milking the franchise dry.
MS better buy some studios like IDK Bungie and start some new IP's I love gears and i would love a trilogy but i need more than this.
DUH! I dont understand why they would even continue making the series next gen either.. Halo & Gears have run their course & microsoft needs to hire devs that will make NEW & EVOLVED IPs.. Their offerings are stale to me so i wont be investing in the future xbox.. Im now a Sony guy & used to hate them.. The user interface sucks but they provide where it counts.. NEW GAMES
They have, MS have like 7 new studios working on new IP for next-gen. http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...
yes but if theyre all about killing aliens with guns, its not much different
@tgonzalez - Do you also think that all Gran Turismo games are about driving Skylines, all God of War games are about killing the same mythic creatures over and over, and that all MGS games are about sneaking through the same corridors hiding in the same boxes? It's easy to generalize. What do you want Halo to be about? Sports? "microsoft needs to hire devs that will make NEW & EVOLVED IPs.." Isn't Forza Horizon a great example of an evolved IP? Polyphony should have done something like that long ago instead of just adding a coat of paint and a couple of skins to each iteration of GT.
Glad to hear. Far too much hearsay about the 720, wish they would just come out and announce it.
I wonder if Gears of War 4 will be a launch title, or whether Halo 5 will be too. I'm fine with keeping the same franchises going, as long as they keep getting better. And it's hard not to when they release on Next-gen.
trust me, judgement IS gears of war 4. it's the fourth game, they just don't want to embarrass themselves by releasing 4 games on one console. also they want tie it into the "unreal engine 4" number thing.
Isn't God Of War Ascension the 4th game, and they are omitting the 4 as well? They are both prequels in a long running series. I highly doubt they would be embarrassed to call it Gears 4, but you don't count up when you label a prequel. By the time the game releases, the Xbox 360 will be around 8 years old. Having 4 games release in 8 years isn't too bad. When you consider we will of had 8 Madden and Fifa titles and 8 Call Of Duty titles. Gears seems to be on a 2 year cycle, and I think its something that looks like it will bring quite a few changes to the series. If people want it, why not make it?
Chunkylover Yeah but is not on one console only Its spread. I dont really mind milk games. If its fun and new then whats the problem
Good game gears and looking forward to this last game on the 360. Some game you can milk and some you can not but gears is running out and its time for a change. I do like gears though.
