Yeah but Epic is still going to be working with BT for a while on the project and i assume BT will be using the unreal engine4 too.

what ever happens i wish both Epic and BT the best of luck.ill be looking forward to the next Gears and i hope we get to see a trailer or demo before the year ends.

Still don't know what to think or feel about this.

I've been part of Gears since it was first showcased.
I was strictly a PC gamer at the time and never touched a console but as more and more videos and info was released the more excited I became and the more I began researching the Xbox 360, the day Gears of War was release I bought it and a 360, in the first two weeks of owning the console I had beaten Gears three times.

When the Epic forums were established I became part of that and made lots of friends, many of which I still have today on my friends list.
Now that Microsoft owns the franchise I have to admit I'm very apprehensive, it's true Epic studios is not the same as the one that released Gears 1-3, GOW:Judgment is living proof of that but will new blood re-vitalize the franchise or bury it completely?

I guess time will tell.

Farewell Epic Studios/Gears of War, you were a friend for many years.

Gears of war Judgement was developed by people can fly games while they were, presumably, working on unreal 4. So Gow: Judgement might not be the best game to judge them on.

See, Alanis...THAT is ironic. ;)

Its the end of an era, from the time Gears was first introduced until now, 9 years. It was fun. Epic has lost so much talent and with the 50% buyout from an investment firm, I think their focus is now on game engines and supporting UE4.

There goes a part of me ... still a fenix action figure in my room. Creating a franchise with soul is the key in gaming.
