Epic Games Open to Gears of War on Next Generation Consoles

"Gears of War has been one of the top franchise this generation. Epic Games, the developers behind this franchise basically re-invented the third person shooter genre with their pop in and out cover-shoot mechanics. With three commercially and critically hit games in the series, Epic Games are all set to release Gears of War: Judgement, a game which focuses on Cole and Baird instead of the series protagonist Marcus Fenix." (Gears of War 5, Next-Gen, PS4, Xbox One)

It would be a megaton x9000 if they finally bring the series to the Playstation platform, can't wait for E3.

Wonder what Gears would look like on PS4? GeOW1 was the first game that felt 'next-gen' (this gen) for me, can Epic step up and create that feeling again?

@disagrees Are you saying Gears 1 didn't feel next gen or that it wouldn't be a big deal if it went multi-plat?

I have Gears of War for PC. Was never able to bring my self to finish the game though...I think a lot of us will be fine if it doesn't come to the Playstation. I kinda wish I could get into it though. The fact that I have no interest in Gears or Halo is the only reason why I don't own an Xbox.

Since I'm considering going PlayStation-only next gen, I'd really like to see Gears of War go multiplatform. I'd also like to see them remove the retro lancer and sawn-off from the game as well but I suspect that would be wishful thinking.

Gears 1 was amazing. Gears 2 was a complete disaster. Gears 3 was fantastic except for the dumb new weapons that ruined the balance of the game. Gears Judgement looks utter garbage.

Very inconsistent franchise for sure, but it has its charms...
MikeMyers  +   1073d ago
They don't own the ip but like the relationship they have with Microsoft. I think there's something more to it than that and Microsoft probably gives them incentives for keeping it to the Xbox 360. If it does come to next gen consoles it should be on other platforms besides the Xbox.

Microsoft obviously had some input since the PC often got neglected too and Epic are more of a PC supporter. This is another sign that Microsoft needs to start investing in their own ip's instead of trying to control 3rd party content and withhold DLC and full games in favor of timed exclusives.

@ GalacticEmpire

Yes, but Microsoft claimed on the announcement of "Gears of War 3" that they already had plan's for the future of the franchise.

Soon before "Gears of War: Judgment" was announced, rumours circulated stating "People Can Fly" where developing a "Gears of War" trilogy.

Also, lets not forget that screens for a "Gears of War" RTS being exclusively designed for Xbox were leaked and the game is rumoured to be in development for the Next Xbox...

Whether people choose to accept it or not, Microsoft aren't giving up Gears, and Epic realise that it'd be stupid to waste the resources developing the franchise for Sony consoles when their fan base is primarily on Xbox.

Sony fanboys have been circulating rumours of the Gears franchise since the release of the original, all they have achieved is sounding dillusional. If only the first game made it to PC, what are the chances of the franchise making it to Playstation?

How do they let their biggest devs even have the possibility of going mutil-plat??

Bungie on ps4 and maybe gears?? Cool! I wouldn't mind slamming my back to a wall on ps4!

I played the first one on xbox and loved it! Just not enough games to want to buy xbox.

Played gears 3 multi-player at cousins apartmaent and man it kick ass(better than uncharted 3 multiplayer but uncharted has better single player). This is the only game I want on xbox.

Epic already said they would keep the franchise with Xbox because they appreciate what MS did for them (e.g marketing).

But considering Wada and Kojima where convinced to bring Final Fantasy and Metal Gear Solid to Xbox, if Sony can afford it I'm sure it could make the jump but I'm sure MS will pay to keep it exclusive unless they think they don't need it.
Heavenly King  +   1073d ago

Microsoft and Epic have a "Strategic Partnership" and by that Microsoft pays Epic's overhead cost and Epic makes a ton of money without spending a ton of money... I don't think Epic would risk losing that kind of relationship to move the franchise over

LAZL0-Panaflex  +   1073d ago
Correct. Gears 1 was and is awesome. Gears 2 campaign was good. Gears 3 campaign was too much like waterworld and mad max. I dont think gears will evergo multiplat simpily because it lost its appeal. Too many other games overshadow it. I think it would be a better move to go multiplat because it makes sense financially but they wont. I would bet money on it staying exclusive.

Its a shame i like the reconfigured ps controller. I plan on going ps4 and steambox this gen.

It's not going to happen.

Epic were never restricted to Microsoft, but have often stated that with the Gears of War franchise, they feel no need to spread to other communities. They could have ported Gears 2 and 3 to the PC, but chose not to. Their fan base is primarily on the Xbox, and those of who are truly motivated on playing the franchise bought an Xbox. Marketing-wise, they couldn't do better than to pair with Microsoft, and Microsoft helped make Gears what it is today.

Not only is it possible (see link in my comment above), it makes financial sense what with the installed base of both next gen consoles likely to be relatively small initially.

You seem almost terrified of this happening, the only reason I can think of for that is that you are a fanatical Xbox guy, am I right? In which case, screw your fanboyism I think all gamers should be able to enjoy this franchise!
NateCole  +   1073d ago
And Sony made GTA what it is today so what's your point?.
Nathaniel_Drake  +   1073d ago
You know this gen when the PS3 came out was a gen that they lost a lot of 3rd party exclusives, it goes both ways. And probably Sony releasing the PS4 early and people already hyped for it would make any developer want to go to that system.

Only having a few 1st party exclusives established next gen is going to bite MS in the butt. If they do start to create new IP's for next gen the new companies have to first establish themselves as being good and have a fan following, something Sony has been doing since PS one. They would allow a company nurture and grow and even if sales are low for a game if it's good they will keep at it whereas MS would not have any patients and scrap those game for low sales and tell them to either make a game that will sell or they will close the studio down
It's going to be hard for MS this time around not having the benefit of better third party exclusives because of hard to decipher hardware from the PS3 and a year head start
omi25p  +   1073d ago
Sony didn't make GTA it was on pc first made by rockstar.

Nice try though
Why o why  +   1073d ago
I think he said made it was it is today..... nice try yourself. . . . if you dont understand its like xbox made mass effect before it went multi and gears what they are today or sony making most of the ex exclusives turned multiplat games some were craving at gen start what they were today. If you've been a gamer long enough you'll know what I mean and him. Ill always associate gears with xbox like I do a whole heap of games with playstation whatever platform the games are released on.

I game on Xbox 360 so I am gonna try and remember back but is Epic and Gears not a Microsoft exclusive franchise??

Maybe not a 1st party developer but is it not something that you could call a "2nd party developer" because they have a very strong relationship with Microsoft but are not exactly tied down to them??
kupomogli  +   1073d ago
They've already stated Gears is not a Microsoft owned IP as others have stated. They're also not a second party developer, they've released Unreal Tournament 3 and Bulletstorm on all platforms.

Most of Epic's money comes from their game engines rather than their games. They develop graphics engines for developers to create games on all systems.
UnholyLight  +   1072d ago
I don't even really know what a 2nd party dev would be but I just mean that Epic just has one of those relationships that would likely keep Gears near and dear to the Xbox only. That's me viewing it in an unbiased way. But of course, Mass Effect began on Xbox but did not stay so I see your point but I just can't really see Gears going multi plat any time soon.
The_Infected  +   1073d ago
It wouldn't be a megaton because Gears is nothing great. It would just leave Xbox with Halo and Forza. Idk what Xbox is going to do next gen if they don't announce tons of be IP.
Cueil  +   1073d ago
clearly you don't get out of your sony community much... Microsoft has a ton of IPs that they could bring back at any time. There are many would would love to see Mechwarrior come back or Age of game make a reappearance or how about Killer Instinct or Lost Odyssey... they own the Motocross series as well as PGR and Battletoads... lets not forget Crimson Skies and who wouldn't want another Crimson Skies game? Lets not forget they still have the Shadowrun IP that I would love for them to let Bethesda get a crack at or at least Obsidian.
sGIBMBR  +   1073d ago

While all those are a possibility, do you actually think Microsoft will bring any of those back, or even create any new hardcore IP's next gen? I really hope so, but I can't see it.

This gen the Xbox has been my primary gaming platform, next to the PlayStation for it's exclusives, but I must admit, and it pains me to say, I'm getting fed up of Microsoft's bullshit!

If what they show at their next conference is anything less than stellar awesome!!! I am official gone from Xbox. I can no longer continue to support them while they blatantly just piss on the core fanbase, the fanbase which has gotten them where they are today in the current generation market.

I will continue to get all my multi platform games on Xbox for the rest of this gen, while getting GoW, TLoU and maybe Beyond on PS3.

I hope I'm not forced to leave Xbox, but I'm not loyal to any company, I just play where I think I will enjoy my gaming the most, and to me it's looking like PlayStation next time around.
Why o why  +   1073d ago
cueils point is the reason many have fallen out of love with ms. The fact is they sat on all of these ips and done ef all with them for a whole gen. Who did that really benefit.... I guess at least your list is long aey and yes many of those games would be welcomed back with open arms it just seems ms wont make that effort unless they're certain it will sell a ton. Not enough risks from them this gen in my opinion so go play your prospects list. I'm into tangible games

crimson skies was needed this gen...bloody classic btw

joab777  +   1073d ago
It will be interesting to see how these juugernaut ips r used next gen. Halo was a crossover, but this gen saw many huge new ips that were very successful. How ell will cod fare? Can Respawn's new game be one of the first new ips that chanhes gaming? Destiny will be very big. Watch dogs looks exciting. But, the economy is bad and new consoles r a risky endeavor. We were shown killzone and infamous already. Many older ips may be leaned on for revenue early on. I am patient though, as long as Irrational gets to work on next gen Bioshock starting April

Your point has no merit.

Gears Judgment isn't even out yet, so I will reserve judgement. You can't call a game bad when it isn't even out yet, that is just idiotic beyond belief.

Also, there is the fact that you are never to warm to anything MS or Xbox related... so go away.
Hydralysk  +   1073d ago

I'm not a fan of Gears for many reasons, art design and story mostly, though I do respect that it pioneered third person cover mechanics, but it's not a terrible game by any means.

That said while I don't think gears is a bad game, you really shouldn't try to use metacritic scores as proof of a games quality. For example, Fallout 3 has a way higher metacritic score than NV despite most people I talk to prefering NV.

I like Gears of War franchise but I have no interest in judgement day at all. Since this Gen is coming to an end it just feels like Microsoft have paid epic to make another geow game to fill the gap between now and the release of there new console as they have very little exclusives coming out this year and went with an established ip rather than create a new one....

Geow needs to go on a break.

Gears needs a rest. If they do bring it over to next-gen it needs to have new characters and everything. Gameplay also needs a next-gen flavor.

DigitalRaptor  +   1073d ago
What's wrong with saying it needs a break? Games like Call of Duty also need breaks at the rate in which they release. Gears of War series will have had 4 games on a single platform when Judgement comes out, and that game looks mediocre by comparison to the rest of the series which i actually enjoyed somewhat. The series reached its peak at GeoW 3, there's no need for Judgment as i doubt it will serve the series well, whether you're looking to get your Gears fix or not.

and yes Uncharted has comparable market penetration and following, and yes it is more awarded and scored across the industry. It also has more varied gameplay.

Gears of War is one of the very few Xbox defining exclusives that Microsoft actually promotes. Some people think it's trash, so what?

And Left 4 Dead came at a time when Valve were unhappy with Sony's PS3. since then, Valve have brought Portal2 and Counter Strike GO, to PS3 and future games including L4D will come to PlayStation .

Future Gears of War probably won't come to PlayStation but, there's still a slight chance they will and Epic have stated their positivity about PS4 AND Vita .
Jek_Porkins  +   1073d ago
Some people speculate that Cliffy B left Epic because he didn't want to work on the Gears series for the next decade, and that Microsoft already paid to keep Gears coming. I have a feeling they already have the next chapter mapped out in the Gears universe, and considering Microsoft's deep pockets I doubt they'd let it go to a competing platform.

Mike Capps who is the president of Epic said Gears will never be on a PlayStation console, so take it for what it's worth.
porkChop  +   1073d ago
Mike Capps left Epic as well, and Rod Ferguson. During the past year Epic has lost quite a few good people at both Epic and PCF. Something's definitely going on over there.
Jek_Porkins  +   1073d ago
He's still on the board of directors. They could have very well wanted to make something new and a new contract with Microsoft would have really limited their creativity.

Don't kid yourself into thinking Microsoft wouldn't do what it takes to keep Gears exclusive, I mean they have a prime time show tonight on Fox dedicated to Judgment.
clintagious650  +   1073d ago
That would be great for those who dont own a 360 but that would suck for MS seeing that this is a franchise that made me buy a 360. If they lose this, im afraid kinect will be also the nextbox is main focus. Lets hope not but a phat check should shut them up.
jc48573  +   1073d ago
I hate when there's a game where it has only been in one console for all its eternity and suddenly it becomes multiplatform to another console where gamers there probably have lost absolute interest towards the series or not have the slightest intention of getting into the series that they know for sure they won't like. If it was a established multiplatform series, then I wouldn't mind, but I think it's best they stayed in one console for the sole purpose of maintaining that quality control.

There's a reason it says "re-invent". No one said Gears invented anything. Killswitch & Windback are irreverent. Why? Because they didn't do anything to spark the genre. Yes, they had a cover system first, but they didn't get it right. Gears got it right, and got it right very well.
Monstar  +   1073d ago

Gears popularized and reinvented such a cover system. Doesn't feel NOR control like killswitch, instead epic games used a bases from that game and perfected it. When killswitch debuted, no one mentioned nor credited the cover system. So STFU.

Gears of War is TNT in XBOX 360, the story is amazing and the characters are great with a tons of personality, Marcus, Baird, Cole, Camine and Dom( RIP) are the best squad characters ever created. But the game is overexploited, the history was closed with the destruction of the Locus. The last GOW Judgment is OK because is a retrospective of the history, but for a new generation Microsoft must create a new IP or almost a new history with new enemies in a future era's Sera.

i have nothing against gears of war, but its universe is not interesting enough to merit more games. it really isnt. just move on to something else.

Who didn't see this coming? They have no choice that's one of 3 of microsofts IP's. I was just hoping this wouldn't be the case but we see now it is...

ok so we got gears but what about halo 567 and 8 and 9?

I would love to see Gears on my future PS4. AS I recalled, Epic said in order to properly run UE4, 2 TFLOPS is optimal and the PS4 with its 1.86 TFLOPS processor will makr the game shine. It will certainly performs better than the supposed 1.2 TFLOPS processor of the Xbox 720. I have no reason to get 2 consoles if Gears is on the PS4.

Which is why gears wont come to ps4. Noone would have to buy xboxs.

Which is why im getting steambox and ps4. Steam for all the old crysis games and steam games that were better than ps3 and 360, and of course im getting ps4,...killzone, infamous (my two favorites), then all of the other exclusives by sony, 8 gigs of ram, CROSSGAME CHAT, xbox type headset, bigger control = i dont need the new xbox, halo....dont need it,....forza ...good but dont play it much......gears will miss but not for $400.

But if ps4 or steambox releases a gears collection,....yes i would buy it.

MS must resolve this quickly , I don't care if Epic wants to become more MP oriented but Gears of War franchise ,Shadow Complex franchise must remain XBOX Exclusive no matter what .

Not just Gears, but also Alan Wake. If MSFT looses both of those titles, then it is pretty much game ova for them.

I just hope they put a stop to this crazy crap about support a game & then let it go else where. Like what happened with the Mass Effect franchise, they need to keep those that they invest in real close.

i will be more excited to see a new IP from Epic Games but not Gears of War on multiplat.

Sweet more gears is welcome for me.

Another one bits the dust....not very surprised if this does turn up multiplatform.I was actually thinking about this the other day I got that weird feeling same when Square Enix announced FF13 for the 360.M$ does have deep pockets so anything is possible considering how this generation turned out.

It's hard for me to get excited for another Gears on 360. But Gears running on Unreal 4 next gen stokes the flames.

I really don't believe Microsoft would let this franchise go however (for those speculating a multiplatform release). Would be a huge bomb if dropped thats for sure.
