Might Gears Of War Go Multiplatform?

Angie Santiago reports from SpawnFirst: "Considering Mass Effect, Dead Rising 2 and Dead Rising: Off The Record went multiplatform, there’s a big chance that PlayStation owners might get to experience Gears of War as well. The fact that Epic declined to comment when asked directly from Microsoft is something of a hint. This isn’t concrete proof that it will go multiplatform, but it definitely makes that glimmer of hope shine just a little brighter." (Gears of War, PS4, Xbox One)

Hard to tell

VGAs incoming and as always bombs will drop!

With MS putting their money into other exclusives and timed exclusives they might pass on renewing the GoW exclusive seeing how Judgment was kinda the worse one.

Maybe with it coming to PS4 they will renew a storyline? New characters and war? or point of view of the war.

But Microsoft owns the Gears of War name
CGI-Quality  +   545d ago
No they don't. Epic owns the IP. Microsoft only published the 360 titles and those publishing rights expired or will expire (depending on the game). They can renew those, if they see fit, but it's 100% Epic's IP.

Never mind that it also says so directly in the article. :P

Super Mario's mustache is owned by SEGA.

See I can make things up too.

@ CGI-Quality
I didn't read the article lol and I was told it was owned by Microsoft. Thanks for clearing that up

Well, technically,
Isn't Gears already 'multiplatform'? (PC)
Mr Marvel  +   545d ago
I thought only the first one made it to PC.
TrueJerseyDevil  +   545d ago
the only one that came to PC was Gears 2? or am i wrong i'm not sure
Evilsnuggle  +   545d ago
Epic owns grears of war . The Only way that would should be a xbox exclusive is if they get a deal like titianfall . That makes them money if not they should be a new game for both PS4 and xboned. That would bring some attention to the series and add new fans from PS platform

It will happen with a new cog team etc.
Kayant  +   545d ago
That will make me happy has a massive Gears head but I don't know if I trust them after the mess up that is judgement. Still happy about this news :)
BluRaven77  +   545d ago
I don't know if Judgement was a mess. I actually enjoyed the game. It's not the original Gears but it's not bad either.
Kayant  +   545d ago
I bit strong worded :p but SP was not bad. MP was very mixed. Weapon balancing was well done but I don't like how the shotgun works personally & the verticalness with the dropdowns & whatnot.

I love Gears 3 and still play it to death even though lag is a big problem for me & the damn OP retro lancer. Those are probably the worst things I feel about the MP for Gears 3.
classic19  +   545d ago
first gears was the best, i played gears 1&3 so i skipped the second one, i went in got a ps3 after rrod.
ELCUCO  +   545d ago
I need this to happen.
MisfitsInc  +   545d ago
i hope not.
Hellsvacancy  +   545d ago
Same as, I'd rather they made a new ip, like The Samaritan http://www.youtube.com/watc...
TheLostCause  +   545d ago
I'm not really sure how they could continue the story tbh, I was a huge Gears fan last gen but after playing Gears 3 and Judgement I think it's ran it's course. unless the locust are still alive somehow?
Revolt13  +   545d ago
Nooooooo, please noooooo
CGI-Quality  +   545d ago
Why? It will also come to the Xbox, it's not like your life will end if it does happen. As I told PlayStation fans with FFXIII: "life goes on". You still get the game.

Gears is my favorite game from last Gen, I'm a full on beast online. Let Microsoft hold on to what few exclusives it has.
tehpees3  +   545d ago
It depends if Epic is seeking a publisher other than Microsoft. At this moment its unlikely given how much backing Microsoft have given the series.

Just because it can doesn't mean it will.
mshh4  +   545d ago
My hands is ready to take the Ds4 to play gears of war 4 in my ps4.
2pacalypsenow  +   545d ago
I had a few guys that work at epic buy an xbox1 at my best buy, i asked them if the rumors were true they said, we cant tell you anything about that..
talhat2  +   545d ago
I hope it happens Gears is one of my Fav games of last gen
TheRatedD  +   545d ago
QUEERS OF WAR WOULD ONLY TAINT THE PLAYSTATION'S GREAT LEGACY OF HIGH QUALITY EXPERIENCES.
VonBraunschweigg  +   545d ago
WHAT?
creatchee  +   545d ago
What, Knack?
classic19  +   545d ago

"The fact that Epic declined to comment when asked directly from Microsoft is something of a hint."

Is there no integrity left in journalism? No where in the article does it say that MS asked Epic that question. The interviewer states that he himself tried to contact Epic and they declined to respond. Nice try at some spin buddy.

That being said they may very well take it multiplatform just for the sales. The last Gears Judgement was not very good IMO so they may need it to bump up sales. I skipped the 3rd game but the first two were great.
EazyC  +   545d ago
Cool, I'd love if it was more horror-ish like the first GoW, and not a Michael Bay style action orgasm.
I_am_Batman  +   545d ago
I'd rather have a new Unreal Tournament that is more like UT2004 first.
DarkBlood  +   545d ago
if they made a next gen collection for the ps4 i would buy it.
Mr Marvel  +   545d ago
I'd so buy this again just to play on PS4.

Especially if the up the resolution and improve the frame rate.
BlakHavoc  +   545d ago
Never truly cared for Gears but glad people that never tried it on PS systems may get that chance.
Nocando  +   545d ago
Wait, what happened to Gears being a "dude bro" game? I thought your lot hated this series.
christocolus  +   545d ago
Not this again..love cliffy B though. Great guy...imo Ms needs to get him on board under the ms umbrella..get him a new team and make fresh ips
