Black Tusk Studios Is "Honoured To Be The Studio Chosen" To Develop Gears Of War
wait a minute is Gears What Black tusk has been working on?
Yes. It seems like they were the "new IP" was just a proof of concept stuff that they did at E3. They might be developing the next GEOW now.
Not necessarily. There is nothing to suggest that they aren't working on a new IP too.
"The thing we showed at E3 last year, it was something that was done in Unreal and more of a concept piece," Spencer said, calling it "an asset" created by the team to get their creative juices flowing, not necessarily an in-development game. http://www.polygon.com/2014...
I actually Microsoft Announced that Black tusk will be developing a new IP to go against Halo, GOW is just another project they will be working on.
I think they have been working on something else. MS hinted that they would have more news about the next gears at the end of this year. Which night mean Black Tusk will start working on the next Gears after their new IP.
it is confirmed that back tusk was waorking on multiple projects ,phil also staed that the trailer you saw was a new ip which was made to rival,halo and gears ,he said this buy himself.black tusk is a bif studio with multiple project and gears have just started to develop its producer confirmed ,may be you will see new ip from them in 2015 and gears in 2017.gears is still far away.
Great news, Gears needs a reboot that will get it back on track and deliver the greatness of 1 and 2.
If you read the acquisition article at xbox.com you'd think that they a FPS in the work also. Gears is a another IP to work on! Check it out man if you get a chance.
They will do a good job with Gears I'm sure.
Name 1 good game that came from Vancouver.
i wonder are they really happy to be working on it. its a pay check but seriously a game dev dont wanna make their own baby
Nope. They definitly have more games in development and the studio is also a lot larger than it used to be. http://www.shacknews.com/ar... http://n4g.com/news/1352683...
Gears is one of the games that they are working on along with this E3 preview http://www.totalxbox.com/64... http://www.youtube.com/watc... @Xsilver: Yes it is a concept. More like a tech demo but as stated in the article There is no reason to think that that engine will not be used for a new product because the article also says "Digging around in job listings suggests that the studio has a number of new IPs, and it's currently recruiting for people to create "outstanding single-player experiences in a core AAA game." So they are also working on a new IP.
What they showed at E3 is not a game that's in development its just a Concept.
They are working on more games, but that E3 preview ahs been confirmed today as being just concept for Unreal Engine.
Does any one know what games they have developed?
They haven't made anything yet
Which is the best part about everyone pretending like it will be great.
I'm a fan of most of the gears games, so it's good that they are keeping it going. However I'm not too excited about these guys developing it since they haven't developed any games before.
That's why it's hilarious that everyone is praising them so highly... Like it doesn't matter what they make it's going to be epic/s
I thought Gears of War was owned by Epic...
Microsoft fired the checkbook torpedos when no one was looking! I thought for sure it would go multi but anything is possible and going by Microsoft's words about gears not long ago, this does come as a minor surprise to me.
No new ip, what a let down. Can't say I didn't expect it...this is Microsoft. Halo gears and Forza, have been their only true exclusives for the past 5 or so years.
wait....THIS was the "big" announcement ? You see how they value news and announcements, and how we value them.. Worlds apart
Gears acquisition is much huger than announcing a new IP. Just the name alone is guaranteed to sell millions. What that means, is that millions of fans are going to be really happy to be getting more gears.
And Traveller's Tales were honoured to be chosen to make the next Crash after Naughty Dog.........they butchered it beyond repair. SHOW DON'T TELL.
Not at all. They were handed the Gears IP after it was purchased from Epic. Black Tusk is working on/with several projects/intellectual properties, the newest one being Gears. This is NOT what we saw at E3. That's something that's yet to be announced. "The next [franchise to rival the popularity of] Halo" according to those lucky enough to know anything about it.
Ok wow then that disappointing in an sense of new franchise but happy there at least working on a game
they're working on 4 ip's.
An untested studio working on four new ips I don't think so sorry, they are all of used on getting gears of war out. That's all their job is now, enjoy halo, gears rotation all over again
O.O Oh my!!! I would like to see what they can come up with.
They must be very talented with MS trusting them with Gears :) And the Gears producer was hired by Microsoft so no worries at all
Talented? Living legends is more like it. The Average AAA game experience of the devs working there is 12 years.
yep rod fergusson is one talented developer, good thing they hired him hope other devs at Black tusk are on on par with the older devs, i don't want another CoD MW3/ghosts, perfect dark zero, resi 6 etc... disasters happens when u change the team but i got faith in MS, they chose the right people for Halo 4 one question, what are the original gears of war developers work for right now??
Got to hand it to MS, they seem to understand the importance of retaining key personnel to maintain the essence of a series. They did it with 343 and Halo, and they're doing it again here.
Halo by 343 was by far the worst halo
I say halo reach was by far the worst halo. Everything felt broken. Halo 4 fixed that mess. Only difference is that there was no competitive ranking system to keep ppl playing.. The graphics and story were definitely refreshing in 4 as well.
Black Tusk has big shoes to fill. For exclusives, only Halo sold more games on 360, Gears sold over 20,000,000. Wii also has some bigger sellers, mostly bundles, and nothing on PS3 sold 20m.
Didn't you make the exact idiotic comment in another thread?
Gran Turismo sold more than Halo and Gears combine.
Mario looks down at you
Thanks for going back to 1995 and also the PS2 for sales. I was comparing apples to apples, last gen to last gen, 81m+ consoles to 81m+ consoles...get it? @combat...just showing the success of Gears in retrospect to a similar consoles install base
Last Gen? Absolutely false
That's not quite true Halo and gear have sold around 76 GT has sold around 70. http://www.vgchartz.com/gam... http://www.vgchartz.com/gam... http://www.vgchartz.com/gam... But all 3 are must own games and with ip's like Forza, Halo, GoW, GT, UC, GOW, Mario Kart, Zelda, pikmin ect on all 3 consoles its more reason to own them all and have fun gaming.
@green well GT5 did sell more than halo 4 and Gears Judgement not combined but it still outsold them and you guys really need to stop going after sales to state if a game is better which is a stupid thing to do because Your basically saying that COD is the best game ever because of its sales.
who cares wtf does that have to do with anything?
And it's still overhyped garbage
i dont hate GT but for last 2 instalments i'am little dissapointed and i think forza has done a better job ,gt5 sold well but it is obviosly not better than forza 4 ,i'am not hating them ,gt was my favourite racing game once and i want it to be great again ,but we cant chainge facts ,i enjoyed forza 4 more than gt5 and now just look at the sales of gt6 ,they are 10% less than the sales of gt5 ,the dissapointment of gt5 has effected in loss of fanbase,gt7 can be reviver of the series if they did great job ,but i fear that the real talent behing the first four games is gone and now anew team is looking over gt in the same studio.
What do the wii and ps3 have to do with this article?
Axios, Ohh yea sales? Sales? I mean you can't be comparing sales for a game that had 37 releases could you?
You make true fans look bad man.
Get some hand to hand combat in it, like dead to rights: retribution. (such an underrated game)
In Gears??? What?
yeah I'm sure they could utilize one in it somewhere. only in the single player, not the mp, think of uncharted 3's hand to hand. http://lazyreviewzzz.com/wp...
A little disappointed was hoping black tusk were doing something else... welp here's to a new gears :-)
they're working on 4 ip's (gears is probably included, so I guess 3 other projects).
I'm surprised they announced this as casually as they did. You'd have thought something as big as this would be saved for E3 alongside some sort of video. Hopefully that means Microsoft have so many things to show at E3 that they didn't even need this.
Its just that they are working on it. I'm sure they would show it off at e3.
Blacktusk must be working on atleast 3 titles now. The studio has grown over the last one year and yet they keep hiring by the day. Ms must really have a lot of faith in the guys there. http://n4g.com/news/1352683... Just do it right guys. Congrats. @ true samurai They have other games in development aside gears of war. http://www.shacknews.com/ar...
Good luck, Black Tusk. I've got faith in you.
Yeah that was a great move Microsoft. Too bad epic killed off the entire locust race. Aww, at least there's always prequels. (Mouth fart)
what are you guys talking about? How does them posting that they are excited to have been chosen to continue the Gears of War franchise mean they arent making a new IP? This just recently happened the trailer we saw of the new "black tusk ip" was being worked on ALREADY. Dont expect a new gears for atleast 2 years. You guys are so quick to assume things do you guys use your thinking skills?

that doesn't mean that they are working only one gears of war. that just means that the studio created a piece to show off their talent.
Sorry but your wrong. There is absolutely no way MS has been putting that much money into Black Tusk to wait that they MAYBE get the deal to own Gears of War. Black Tusk has been working on a new IP, and if you think they arent you have the wrong mentality of this situation. No way Black Tusk has been doing nothing and just waiting for this moment. Like i said this recently happened this hasnt been known for a year, maybe a week or 2 max.
I really don't get what you are trying to argue about. This is their next game. Never said they didn't have anything else in development but everyone thought the video from last year was the next game from Black Tusk. Gears IS their next game and I bet it will be out in 2015 since Halo is out at the end of this year. I don't know how you think your in a position to argue what exactly a company has been doing with their time and money. I don't know how your claiming I am wrong. It isn't my quote it is from them so who maybe you need to get on twitter, snail mail, email, or a make a youtube video telling them they are wrong.
http://n4g.com/news/1444837... Sorry Mustang but you are wrong. Gears was just acquired, Black tusk has been opened for a little over two years. And nothing in that linked article you provided suggests that Gears is their next game.
haha no gears for other platforms
