Epic needs to work closely with them for the first title just like good ol bunjie did with 343i for halo anniversary. I trust it will turn out great. Thanks to epic and congrats to ms/black tusk.

I am glad that Epic is moving on. I did not care for the Gears series at all. I did end up playing the first 3 because I got them all used after I got a free xbox 360 with the purchase of a PC. The series had high production values but poor writing like a summer action flick. It was the gameplay that ultimately caused me to dislike the games though. I hope this means that Epic is going multi-platform with the titles they are working on this gen. Not sure how this is a megaton announcement as this was exclusive last gen to the 360.

no doubt Epic will make a successor franchise like Bungie are doing with Destiny

New promising team in Black Dust and the creator Rod leading the team sounds good to me.

Gears of War 1-3 was one of the greatest series ever created, judgement proved there's nothing left to say.

Don't be a ho about it. Didn't mean to offend the fanboy. And I like how you focus on that part of my comment as opposed to future epic games on ps4. Idiots.

Gears generally sells well with the exception of Judgement. Here's hoping some fresh blood brings some fresh new ideas to the table. I didn't think 343 Industries could do it for Halo but I honestly enjoyed what they added to the Franchise. So hears hoping Blacktusk can do the same for Gears. Great play by Microsoft and hopefully it pays off for them.

This is good for gears, judgment was a let down and I wasn't liking the direction it was going. Rod ferguson leading the team is the best news gears is in good hands.

I didn't like how part 3 ended. Never played Judgment. Perhaps fresh perspective is necessary.

There will always be locust hordes...

waiting for the next installment of the series..

Hopefully when the hardware matures a little bit...I'm sure I'll be ready. Nobody has done it like "Horde Mode".
