The Gears of War trilogy, whether you like it or not, has to go down as one of the stand-out IPs of this generation. It introduced cover-mechanics that are now industry standard and it was one of the first games to make us appreciate what this new generation of consoles could do.
So it’s only natural that Microsoft wouldn’t let the fact that the Gears trilogy is ‘done’ to stop them making another. Heck no. You can’t keep a good game down, especially if their team-mates move next to them and press ‘X’. So, come to the stand, Gears of War: Judgment; we’re about to deliver our final verdict.
