Gears of War for Xbox One

"You could question the fact that the latest/fourth game released in the Gears of War franchise; Gears of War: Judgment, certainly did not hold up to the popularity of the trilogy along with the lead on all three previous games, Cliff Blesinski as well as..." (Gears of War 5, Xbox One)

Hard to tell
Is this rumor true? Rumor votes 14

It is hard to say if Gears of War can recover from Judgment.
Abash  +   366d ago
I didnt even play Judgement so I cant say if it's as bad as I heard it is, but Gears of War 3 just ended the series for me. It felt closed and done with at the end, and I really have no interest in another game being made in the series.

If anything Epic should create a spiritual successor to Gears, with similar and expanded upon gameplay but in a new universe with a new (and hopefully better written) story
MizTv  +   366d ago
It ended for me after 1
Shit just went down hill
But will always love gears1
Dlacy13g  +   366d ago
I agree... Gears 3 closed the book on Gears. I am not a fan of prequels mostly because...I know the outcome of the major story.

That said...IF they really are going back to the early human wars... the game "could" be something of interest. I would love to see a Gears of War in more of a Battlefield kind of setting. By saying that I mean, vehicles and human on human warfare in some crazy big open maps.

Yea, next-gen Gears of War doesn't sound appealing because of the past Gears of War. LOL

Completely agree.. Didnt buy Judgement based on the fact that 3 was the end and it shouldve been done and dusted.

All gears games were fantastic buy milking franchises like GoW and Halo etc with prequels etc just ruin it
koolaid251  +   366d ago
I like judgement if you're a real gears fan you're gonna like them.
onyoursistersback  +   366d ago
i hope if this game ever gets made, its dose not stay exclusive. (fan of this franchise)
:/
CGI-Quality  +   366d ago
If you're a fan of the franchise, why would it matter if it's exclusive or not?
Heartnet  +   366d ago
75%+ it will be exclusive lol... why would they release it on anything else when no other console has the ones beforehand xD

What didn't you like about Judgement? I just started playing it this week. Been too busy and just now getting around to it. I'm only on the 3rd act / chapter so I can't give my full opinion on it yet.

On topic
I would love to see a Gears next gen but it the story has to make sense. Anyone that has played them all knows that wont be easy but we will see.

If only they could recapture the impact of the original. The original was my favorite. Each iteration since has lost a little luster for me personally. Maybe Epic will go in a different direction completely kind of how Bungie has with Destiny. That would be the ultimate path for them IMO.

It's not horrible, but it's not as good as the first 2/maybe 3. A bit like God of War Ascencion, it's more of a filler game until next Gen.
JokesOnYou  +   366d ago
First time I agree with you Hammad, its not horrible but nothing near the greatness of the original and Gears2 which are my favorites. I expect next gen will raise the bar and have the series back to its usual badassery.
Cmk0121  +   366d ago
One game that dipped in quality and still pushed out over a million units. Not a lot went into making it, gears franchise is fine
HammadTheBeast  +   366d ago
I agree, just like GoW Ascension, this was a filler game which was good, not great, and leads up to the next Gen.
Dobgamers  +   366d ago
No, you're wrong... Gears of war judgment was awesome but not as good as gears 3, and it can recover easily.

Would you look at this, killzone is milked too... But the only difference is that killzone will never have have ratings or fanbase or sales like gears of war.

Now lets imagine gears of war running in unreal engine 4... Dat would be... Ammm... AWESOME!

No one is asking for Gears man. He was just stating a possibility. So take your Gears of War and shove it right up your poop-shoot pal.

Edit: LOL at thecowsaysmoo.Spin that shit Mr. DJ. That's not even what you said. You said: "KEEP DREAMING PSLAVE." Good try, but not good enough. Some other troll got caught doing that same move of yours.

Killzone better offline gears better online!gears doesn't have the mega following because of its challenging nature is a turn off for fps squirt fighter gamers IE the majority.

Yeah it could go multi but MS won't let it since they got the rights to publish. The franchise is boring anyway so they can have it.
PraxxtorCruel  +   366d ago
Alright so GOW: Judgement didn't do as well as everyone was hoping. Still doesn't mean I give up on the series. I'd still be excited for another. What about GOW: Ascension? That game wasn't particularly amazing too but still I'd bet you lot would be happy to hear another God of War announcement.
Skips  +   366d ago
Difference is, people actually liked, even loved Ascension.

Judgement is universally hated by even the most hardcore Gears Of War fans...

For example...
http://www.amazon.com/Gears... = 2.9/5
http://www.amazon.com/God-W... = 4.2/5

When a game is rated lower than Duke Nukem Forever by fans, http://www.amazon.com/Duke-... = 3/5

... you know it's terrible. lol

@dark-hollow

I never said that. -__- Where in my comment do you see that?

All I said was comparing the satisfaction between Ascension and Judgement by fans or gamers in general is like night and day.

dark-hollow  +   366d ago
Oh I see, I didn't play judgement although I played the trilogy. I don't think it is worse than the pile of steaming crap that is duke nukem forever.
ceedubya9  +   366d ago
I didn't find Judgement bad at all. I didn't touch the multiplayer though, so I can't comment on that portion. The single player on the other hand was pretty much standard Gears besides a few changes here and there.
nukeitall  +   366d ago
It's hard to please fans that are set in their way.

if you look athe iteration of Gears 1 all the way to 3, there are changes mostly minor. Judgment on the other hand was a huge change and as a huge gears fan, judgment made many many good changes.

I have hard time choosing between my favorite of gears 3 or judgment.

the fresh feel was definitely awesome, and gears 3 feel very slo mo now.
D-riders  +   366d ago
praxx
what are you talking about gow is not one of five franchises it one of like 15 so if one game is bad who cares. and the people who make gears arent even there anymore. new franchise needed. also why would you make a xbox one game exactly like xbox 360 new franchise need. bring gears back in five years. like sony did with gow
dark-hollow  +   366d ago
@skips

So one bad game means it's the end of the whole franchise?
D-riders  +   366d ago
halo 4 had the same outcome
pedrof93  +   366d ago
I don't think so.

Halo 4 may not be better than reach, but doesn't go down hill.
CalamityCB  +   366d ago
Halo 4 was a brilliant entry to the franchise, people are quick to be disheartened from it but from a fans point of view it's brilliant:
They continued a story that was left on a cliffhanger, they did it perfectly and didn't rely on the "SAVE HUMANITY" stereotypical sci-fi story line. It was a heartfelt story between John and Coratana, the survival of
cortana and a story the Didacts rage fueled vengeance thrust upon him as the true last of his kind.
They improved on story, gameplay (I can understand if you don't like multiplayer but the campaign was solid) and character development, chief wasn't just some shell like the previous games, he showed emotion and Steve Downes has definitely improved as a V.A (I swear chief was pretty much in tears at the end but the visor lol).
Gears of War Judgement was a spin off, it should not have been expected to sell as much as a main title entry and should have taken a different gameplay style.
Rant Over.

Allsystemgamer  +   366d ago
So many people dislike halo 4 and I just don't get why. The campaign was the best since 1. The story was very well executed and written. I actually felt for a hero of who's face you never see
ma1asiah  +   366d ago
I loved the opening level of Halo 4 but after that it kind of slowed to almost a stand still for a little longer than it should have. The epic battles felt almost non existent. In fact as an example in one level you come out of a portal a big battle is underway and once you enter it is like everyone magically disappears leaving just you fighting.

The story between John 117 aka Master Chief and Cortana yes definitely was rock solid but some parts of the campaign seemed kind of lacking.

Another issue I had with Halo 4, is the repetitive level design and finally they seriously need to get rid of the jump from FPS to TPS every time you switch to vehicular combat. I mean if Battlefield can keep it FPS why can't Halo.

I still love the Halo franchise but it really needs to steps things up campaign wise at least in a big way before it gets left behind.
xReDeMpTiOnx  +   366d ago
So I get disagrees just for stating something that's true lol?
warewolfSS   366d ago | Personal attack | show
TheSuperior  +   366d ago
I would give it a shot regardless. Judgment wasnt great I didn't even like 3 that much but I play so many games that ill rent it and if I put it down in a few days big deal if it ends up being good then great I won't put it down in a few days x)
ma1asiah  +   366d ago
GOWJ was not really an EPIC game but a People Can Fly game. The reason most fans were upset was due to lack of content at launch and changes to the formula that seemed a little to drastic. The game was ok but just didn't feel like a real Gears game.

It did bring in some changes such as a change in control scheme, the removal of stopping power to name a few that were great. But with so many buggs, no horde mode, a campaign that was servicable at best, and only four multiplayer maps that were designed around free for all then you can see why fans of the series were bent out of shape.

If the rumors are true and they go back to the Pendulum Wars then I would be super psyched. As this would not only revitalise the series but take it in a whole new direction.

Read the Gears novels Anvil Gate or Aspho Feilds by Karen Traviss and you to will know that this would be pure awesome.

Redemption is right, though with Judgment and the titles being for "Xbox One" it leads me to believe that maybe they signed another contract with them... but I just don't know how it can come back after Judgment. ALL 3 games in the trilogy were always on the top Xbox Live most played games nearly every week (it was always Halo, COD, & Gears). When Judgment came out it just went down hill... then they release patch after patch to try and make Judgment as much like Gears 3 as they can (spawning with shotgun & rifle, etc.) ...why they changed all these aspects from Gears 3 after Epic worked so hard to get the game just right I will never know... maybe that is partially why Cliffy B left, Rod Fergusson as well as a ton of other Epic developers that were there from the start of the first game.

Who knows, but a good story/campaign is not going to be enough to revive the franchise at this point. It need good multiplayer... which Judgment just couldn't put out.
H4zZz4  +   366d ago
I think that they need to come up with some new characters and new ideas to get gears on the right track.
FrigidDARKNESS  +   366d ago
A month ago MS said they had no plans for a GEOW at this time.. Would welcome another GEOW with next gen graphics.
xReDeMpTiOnx  +   366d ago
I'm no fanboy it just appuals me how i state a simple fact that's true without bashing anyone or anything and everyone jumps "like omg that kid just insulted gears and Microsoft get him 73$;@!&$@"

People are too sensitive, what happened to playing good games for good games? What happened to playing games for story and gameplay? Instead of graphics .............

Get over ur self people

People Can Fly did the last GOW. That was the main reason it sucked. Then people couldn't connect with the main character Baird because of his personality. If Epic does the next GOW on the Unreal 4 engine and bring back the classic multiplayer modes like horde, along with a likable character it'll be great.

People Can Fly did the Campaign... Epic did the Multiplayer... that is why Epic Developers have a live web show every Thursday about Judgment with updates, taking input from fans.
Funantic1  +   366d ago
People Can Fly actually did collaborate and had a major influence on the multiplayer. I heard Cliffy B. talk about it once in an interview. Here's the first link I ran into. You can skip to the 10th paragraph.

TheGrimBunny  +   365d ago
Then that is why it is so bad... i guess. What is that saying, "don't mess with it if it's not broke"
ADirtyJunky  +   357d ago
I think there could be a lot to come from epic games, maybe not a gears game as such, a game maybe in the same sort of world but maybe a parallel universe. I don't know if it's just me but a game based loosely on gears of war with the same/ similar play style but an RPG, a massive open work game
That gets me a little wet
