When it comes to making the next Gears of War, Black Tusk Studios is serious about it being Epic. Literally.
Awesome news! I can't wait for the next Gears.
Im so excited! Gears is one of my fav shooters of all time.
That's actually a very good move by Microsoft. What it means is that when it comes to cinematics, the new Gears maintains a consistency with the previous games. The more original staff the more authenticity and it can avoid the criticisms of Halo 4 being good but 'different' from previous games.
I would get a (cheap/used) XboxOne just like I did with last gen, with the Xbox 360. " proudly just for Gears of War!"
I would say Gears is worth $350
@evilway I would pay a thousand dollars if they made it that expensive just to play a new gears game
That's actually a good idea, I did this with PS3 last gen to catch up on all the exclusives like God of war, uncharted, and resistance. I'm in the same boat as you, just reversed.
Great news looks like the old Gears of War Developers love to back work in the franchise i hope they will do great job with Gears
Gears 4 confirmed 2016 release still hiring people. Gears was the best looking game on 360 should be the same this gen.
Halo this year, Gears of War the next? Seems like a pretty good road ahead for Xbox One.
I think Halo 4 might've taken that crown, but GeOW was typically the best looking series on the 360.
Now the question becomes when Cliffy B will be hired on.
It seems they have everyone from the Gears team except Cliffy.
Rod has opened his doors to EVERYONE who's worked on Gears before. Chances are Cliffy will get hyped for Gears once they release their first at BTS.
Usually im pretty skeptic when an established IP goes to new hands but from what I have been reading I have been getting hyped instead of doubt. I honestly hope they keep up the awesome development on this game. They are showing me they are thinking about the fans.
Considering the mess The last gears was, I'm not going to hold my breath just yet. I do hope we get gears collection (gears 1-3... No more than that lol) on xbox one though.
The last isn't a main gears game and was made by People Can Fly so it is not the same. This one has a AAA budget and many people that worked on the previous Gears 1-3 are onboard. I say no need to worry.
@Rookie Good point, I look forward to putting GoW:Judgement behind me. I think that was doomed to fail when they picked the least liked/interesting character and based a game off of him.
Rightfully so.. The game will be nothing short of a greatness.
Great news. Always loved gears since the first. I remember getting into the MP, those executions were brutal. Some of the most fun I had last gen. Brilliant games
Awesome news. Seeing that Spartan Locke armor trailer earlier today made me even more anxious for the next Gears. cant wait to see the first trailer for Gears 4. its going to be so amazing.
Nice to see some of the old crew getting back together again.
Know Black Tusk was formerly Vancouver Studios, did they create anything under that banner?
They had an unknown IP in development until they postponed it due to Microsoft handing them the reigns to the Gears series. In short, no. Lol.
Please just hire someone else to do the story. I'm still upset how badly the atmosphere and story deteriorated going from Gears 1 to 3. It went from an incredible game with a highly interesting story to an average one.
That's what I said in my comment
Gears of War is a great game but I wasn't never interested in the story and the game started to get stale after the last one. I Just like the multiplayer and gameplay . I'm sure it will sell well regardless who makes it. Microsoft needs this franchise to stay relevant especially since the other console is almost at 30 million sold. As far as story theirs a lot of other TPS with better story and decent gameplay I actually liked The Last of us and Mass Effect a lot better especially the stories. Btw I'm a PC, Ps4, Xbox fanboy I'm not trying to troll.
Well you're right about the better story in Last of us and Mass effect, but gameplay-wise and multiplayer-wise Gears is still untouched. No other TPS comes close to the visceral smooth gameplay and competitiveness of Gears.
@Kingscorpion 1981 Oh come on now... with the story crap (i luv me sum Gears) but Gears is like the new freak on the streets. I ain't got time to tell her a romantic story just give me the drawls dammit... But Judgement is the one most likely to give you the claps. So always keep in mind kids... Latex keeps a Player Alive!!
@kingscorpion 1981, LMAO, please! The Last Of Us was overrated, linear, bad controls, terrible multiplayer, no Campaign Co-op, companion AI was friggin stupid standing in the middle of a room doing nothing, garbage, etc... The story was good, it was just funny as h**l! It wasn't funny when Doms Wife died in his arms! I was Pissed; I beat down some Grubbs for months because of that! If they brought Cliff back, I wouldn't be able to control myself!
Not going to be the same without cliffy B...he had that magic touch and vision. Wish it kept the same team, etc. We shall see....i will fucking kill them if they make it like judgement. KILL!
Literally the reason I own a Xbox One
