Microsoft Wants Gears of War to Come to Xbox One

It would be a shame for Gears of War to end on the note of Judgment, a game many of us would like to forget. Gears of War still has much story to tell. (Dev, Gears of War, Gears of War 2, Gears of War 3, Gears Of War Judgement, Industry, Microsoft, Xbox One)

Of course they do, Gears was Microsoft's flagship series along with Halo. They would be stupid not to bring it back and miss out on the stupendous amount of $$$$$ it would bring. If it turns out to be as much fun as i had on Gears 3 Multiplayer, then bring it on i say.

Lukas_Japonicus  +   250d ago
Yeah, this website is my ENTIRE life..../s

Not my fault that my life doesn't consist of working 9 hours a day in a dead end job that i hate, is it?

And actually, GAMING is my life, so of course im going to spend a lot of time here. Waiting patiently for next gen. Then ill be too busy PLAYING games instead of TALKING about them.

I am 99.99% sure we will see a new gears on XO in a year MAYBE two if what they say about giving it a break is true.

But one thing I didn't like from Microsoft the last two gens was the fact they have started and owned a few IPs that I loved and just let it sit or die... mainly MECH ASSUALT, CRIMSON SKIES (LOOOOOOVED), and Kameo. also they own perfect dark wtf they are sitting on so many good ips!

maybe they will resurrect some more games seeing as how they brought KI back from the dead.

I love gears of war!!! In my eyes it the best game on Xbox 360.
If a new game gets made, hope they bring it to the playStation4.

first i heard that ms said "Gears is irreverent"
now that epic is talking ps4 they changed their tune...smh

I like Gears of War waaaaaaay more than Halo.

If there ever was a way for me to play it on PS4, I'd love to hear about it!
creatchee  +   250d ago
Gears hasn't run its course, but it does need a little break. I hope that they wait long enough to figure out the X1 hardware so that no compromises or excuses can be made.

I concur with WalterWJR. Kind of sad.
Hicken  +   250d ago
Doesn't do you a lot of good to concur with someone who's off-base.
Tctczach  +   250d ago
Why? Because I feel like someone would be better off getting a life rather than sitting on this website all day? Ok, that sounds logical.
Hicken  +   250d ago
... Because Walter was off base, as I said. If you're agreeing, then you're just as wpresumptuous as he is. Kind of sad.
Tctczach  +   249d ago
No. It's sad to spend a whole day on here and say it's your entire life. There is so much more than sitting on a site for the comments. If that makes me sound like a bad person so be it. Go to college or a trade school and get an 8 hour job you love. You can do all of that and still have time to enjoy video games.

Omg seriously wat is wrong with Sony fan boys he just said he liked gears of war 3 and everyone saying BS about him please do get life Sony fan boys if u r gamer at least spend some times on ur console not coming to N4G and try to ruin someone opinion about the game which he likes and it's not on ps console that's one of the reason I won't join ps community because is full of immature and rude and selfish fans
lilbrat23  +   249d ago
I'm so sick of Gears and Halo bring something new to the table. Sheesh
colt-of-tipton  +   250d ago
Would be cool if they based the next game on actual emergence day so we could see how the COG first fought the locusts.

No!!! No more prequels! We move forward, can't risk another GOW:Judgement.

Deadpoolio  +   250d ago
Scratch that they only have Forza and Halo.....Epic owns the Gears IP...So technically since Micro$haft just said Gears is basically irrelevant and ran it's course, Epic could decide to go ahead then and put Gears on PS4.....

What about Viva Pinata 2 for xbox one? =P
DOMination-  +   249d ago
Already released on 360 and it was a great game
falviousuk  +   250d ago
your all right, Ms only have Forza and Halo

They absolutely DO NOT have

Kinect Sports series
Project Gotham Racing
Perfect Dark
Alan Wake
Black Tusk Game (who knows what this is)
Kinect Adventures
State of Decay
Viva Pinata

There are mmore games that MS DO NOT HAVE. A quick google and you will find them, a lot of Rara back catalog, as well as Lionhead and MS own catalog are all available to them.

But you keep spouting your fanboy crap.

And as much as i loved some of those titles. Alan wake in particular that list is pathetic. Those titles date back to the 360 launch window with kameo and crackdown. You would think spanning the best part of a decade that list would stretch much further. I loved my first year or two with my xbox then it got left for dust in a sea of multiplats i could play online for free on my ps3. Halo 4 was the only game to bring me back for a brief period.
History is repeating itself with the xbox one if you ask me with microsoft bringing forth their exclusives from current gen to next with ryse and dead rising 3. As usual they dont seem to look into thenlong term they want to rope us in now to be forgotten again in a few years. I could be proven wrong and would be delighted to have to admit it but i wont bite just yet this time
falviousuk  +   250d ago
@monkey all of those games are ripe for a new version now, I persoanlly would love to see another viva pinata, perfect dark and Kameo and as for An xbox one version of crackdown would be excellent, as long as its better than crackdown 2.

I was really just trying to make a point that MS do have a larger catalog at thier disposable than the sony fanboys would try to have other people believe.

MS also have their own Microsoft studios titles they could draw upon, such as their excellent RTS WW2 game (name escapes me as im typing this)

monkey602  +   250d ago
Agreed i think they are all well overdue. But theyve been left for years with nothing. Instead forza. Halo and gears have been churned out over and over. I would have loved pgr5 instead of another forza. Be careful wishing for another viva pinata though. Trouble in paradise was the very same as the first and i was bitterly dissapointed. Microsoft need to take more risks. For a few years now with the exception of halo 4 there have been no games i felt i must have an xbox for. And with third party i need to know i wont play these alsewhere sonetime to warrant a 2nd console purchase. E.g. bioshock. mass effect. Condemned and many others
DinoNYC  +   250d ago
Crackdown is good, Infamous is better.
Fable went to trash after the 2nd in 2008.
Kinect Sports is trash. Get a wii or something for that.
Forza/Gotham is a joke in comparison to Gran Turismo.
Perfect Dark was good, but compare it to Spyro, Crash, FF7, etc. for PSN.
Alan Wake is good, but Heavy Rain is better.
Other games mentioned were trash.
GraveLord  +   250d ago
Gears of War IP is owned by Epic Games.
They could put it out as an exclusive on PS4 if they wanted to.
Cueil  +   249d ago
but they wont.. the brand is tied up with Microsoft and Microsoft has shown a willingness to get behind a game far more then Sony...
wtopez  +   250d ago
All Gears games should be on PC.
Midgus  +   250d ago
this i would like, cba to buy a xbone lol
OsirisBlack  +   250d ago
They better hope this isn't Epic games big announcement at the PS4 conference seeing as Epic actually owns the IP. Also Didn't Microsoft just say that Gears is not relevant anymore?
Brix90  +   250d ago
Seems like MS were distancing themselves from Epic and another Gears title after Judgement even Phil says he was disappointed. So I wonder if that pushed Epic to make a game for Sony.
reckless_gunner  +   250d ago
Just not sure if there is room for another one. I was hoping for a "Microsoft wants Perfect Dark To Come To Xbox One". Oh well...
JoelT  +   250d ago
Phil Spencer during Podcast Unlocked on IGN,said that the series has "run its course on 360," so im not sure where this idea is coming from.
etownone  +   250d ago
Could mean exactly that.... Ran it's course on 360...

Next gen of gears will be only on Xbox One, and not the 360.
Mister_G  +   250d ago
Well duh! :)
IHassounah  +   250d ago
I hope I can get my hands on the franchise , you could expect great things from me and my team , we are now creating a project for the Xbox One but when the time comes to reveal our project , the people will review it and see if it's good or not

Would be awesome to have a next gen Geow using the cloud service.
TIER1xWOLFPACKx  +   250d ago
The cloud would not make that much of an impact tbh, it's going to be atleast 5 years till the cloud brings noticeable performance to games that cloud computing will become a viable option for improving the game. At the moment the cloud is going to be used for tiny little things like storing data for games like forza so they can use other peoples driving data for that drivatar feature etc

In other news, Sony wants Gran Turismo on PS4. I'm sorry I thought we were having a state the obvious competition.

It's a no brainer that xbox wants one of it's marquee franchises back in action, but when cliffy left the last gears game was palmed off to people can fly, and the result wasn't exactly brilliant.
OrangePowerz  +   250d ago
Was never a big fan of the Gears games so wouldn't mind a new IP instead or Bulletstorm 2.
Software_Lover  +   250d ago
Bulltestorm 2 would be great. Hell, bring back Blinx.
PsylentKiller  +   250d ago
Yes, Bulletstorm 2. The game had solid gameplay, crapy story, but great visuals. Just expand the gameplay a little with next gen graphics and this time it will sell better.

They should put Game of the Year on the box at launch. Lol.
Software_Lover  +   250d ago
I personally don't want it to. Just let it go and do something else. Like Crimson Skies, or Mech Assault, or pay Bioware for Jade Empire 2.
76erz24  +   250d ago
I hope Epic announces a new Gears game at the Ps4 launch, and I'm getting a Xbox1, I just wanted to see a new Gears game.
Ko_Uraki  +   250d ago
The right title should have been "MS: Gears of War for XBOX ONE is on hiatus" or "Gears of War is on Develpment Hell". Spencer said clearly that, despite they love the franchise, by now there is no real plan to revive Gears of War.
monkey602  +   250d ago
I bought my 360 for gears but as much as i loved the series (except judement that was crap) i wouldnt do it again
BG11579  +   250d ago
Funny that this came out today, when a rumor is circulating about a new exclusive game from Epic for the PS4.
Probably Epic is trying to negotiate a contract of exclusivity with MS. After all, how much did they pay EA for Titanfall? It seems that everyone wants a piece of the cake now.
Revolt13  +   250d ago

but not gears

Midgus  +   250d ago
if they took a note from the books, gears could be such better games (story wise). i loved gears to pieces then judgement came out and ruined the plot and backstory completely so i sold my xbox, wish they would bring at least 2 or 3 to PC as well, need my gears back and i certainly don't want to have to buy this console lol

obelix01  +   250d ago
The first Gears brings back great memories. I hadn't seen anything like it before. The way you would sprint in 3rd person was awesome. The way you would cling to the environment for cover was a first. The level of violence was terrific. Using the lancer to saw someone in half was so much fun to do. Part one & part 3 where my favorites. Two brought us horde mode & that was great fun. X1 deserves another Gears game.
monkey602  +   250d ago
No game ever had before or has since got such a satisfying headshot as the first gears did. The frantic gnasher showdowns were amazing too.

that is very possible! Gears of war is a ip from Epic, and epic can make gears for ps4 and Xbox one whit no problems.
unless, ofcorse, microsoft give then a lot of money.
H4zZz4  +   250d ago
I think that with gears they should make some new characters and enemies. They just need to be more creative and utilise the platform and give us something new.

DialgaMarine  +   250d ago
EPIC should definitely go multiplat with the series, espexially seeing as M$ doesn't own the IP. Can you imagine how good a new Gears title would look on the superior PS4 hardware? Hell, it would probably look amazing AND be in native 1080p XD
