Epic Games will be closing their Gears of War forum and handing all social media to Black Tusk Studios Monday, March 10. This will end their involvement with anything Gears of War.
Great! Now tell me when what Epic is doing and when I can get my meaty mitts on UDK4!?
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.
"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.
RIP Gears, you were a great franchise.
Nextgen Unreal Tournament for PS4 please. Thanks in advance Epic
I hope so. Just leave VR support off it, unless you want to use it as a torture device.
PC for me, but yes I couldn't agree more... I NEED another Unreal Tournament. I just hope next time they don't make the characters look like GoW. I hate that steroid look. Also, UT3 was so grey... The levels were so boring because of that. Hope they return to form if/when they do the next installment.
Just kill the GoW franchise already, its had its moment.
Epic has really changed since the UT2K4 days.
Microsoft has Brute Force one hell of an IP that they could make it shine,but they had to go and buy a dead franchise like Gears of War.This just shows they dont know shit about getting gamers envolve it there IPS.
gears is dead.
