Making new Gears of War 'refreshing' after departure of former Epic leads

Steve Watts:

Gears of War: Judgment is a "first" for the franchise in many ways. It is the first prequel, and the first game in the series to come from Epic subsidiary People Can Fly. It's also the first game to release after the high-profile departures of many key Epic employees--an opportunity to change things up for the franchise.

"It feels to me like [People Can Fly] brought fresh blood, fresh perspective, and progressive evolution," producer Alan Van Slyke told us. "They're familiar with the Gears franchise but they're fresh to Judgment." (Alan Van Slyke, Gears Of War Judgement, Xbox 360)

And by "refreshing" they mean making it more like cod which is the exact opposite of refreshing. I honestly don't see why they think it needs refreshing, the game itself is a breath of fresh air and there is nothing quite like it on the market, taking stuff out like DBNO is nothing more than a giant middle finger for long term Gears fans.

Pretty much. A giant middle finger to veteran fans of the series.

Aren't you people clamoring for new game play mechanics?

Are you one of the same people that would as easily complain about CoD annual releases being too similar?

Damned if you do and damned if you don't!

Just keep improving on Horde mode. Make it bigger and badder and harder. I want to be able to build more items.
