EMGN: Gears Of War On Xbox One – Will it be the same?

News fresh off the web, Microsoft studios have acquired the rights to the Gears of war franchise. Along with this news, Rod Fergusson (Former Director of Production at Epic Games) has followed the franchise over to Microsoft.

The story is too old to be commented.

I think what they need to do is make it FAMILIAR, not the same, because 'the same' will become stale. People should recognise it as Gears straight away, but have some aspects fresh and innovative so that it feels like a next gen Gears and not just Gears with a new lick of paint.

The thing i care about most is Horde 3.0. It was easily one of my favourite MP modes last gen along with BC2 Rush mode and MW2 TDM.

Black Tusk have a daunting job ahead of them, i really hope they can pull it off.

Well, Mark Rubin is back so the author shouldn't have to worry. It will be way better than "the same" since an extremely talented studio is now working on it.

I am so, so hyped for the next Gears.

They just need a new storyline and new characters. The online experience above all else most remain the same just improved.

I loved overrun and capture the ring!

The strategt required in those games was fantastic. Not just run and gun!

Although that is fun too! :D

It should be greatness

Black Tusk is supposed to be composed of some industry veterans and Phil Spencer said the series is going back to it's dark/gritty tone that made the 1st Gears so special

I hope so too cos i want this to be the best in the franchise. I know ms will pour in enough resources to make it great. They will even get cliffy b onboard if they have

I'd figure make the campaign as epic as Gears of War 2, make the mp a balance between Gears 1 and Gears 3. Get rid of beast mode, go all out on Horde 3.0, and inject a great story for the campaign.
They do all of that, they'll have a winner.

Couldn't agree with you more. They are working with UE4 so great graphics are a must but what I truly want is a Next Gen Gears game. No corner cuts, keep what EPIC did right:Campaign, Horde, weapon balance (except for the OP shotgun from 3) build on things. Innovate the cover system, Change how we play the game without changing the game. Challenge us as gamers. God I'm Excited, days like this I feel happy I bought an Xb1.

nothing wrong with mixing the old with the new.

Just like every other Xbox game it will try to become more and more casual in at least one way.
