Gears of War creator Cliff Blezinski, currently of Boss Key Productions, took to his Twitter yesterday to share in the announcement of Gears of War 4 on Xbox One.
I hope Cliffy gets to work with Rod again on one of the future GOW titles.
Nah! It is time for fresh hands to take it over!
I thought the same when I watched it but didn't say anything incase the zealots here attacked me. But glad the co-createor of Gears could see it and was open about it?
@donthate I agree. I believe Rod and the team will do a great job.
I feel it's more like Bungie working on Halo in the future. The ones who had a passion for the project stayed. All the ex Gears leads who've joined The Coalition are what means the passion will always be there. Who knows if Cliffy/Bosskey ever work with The Coalition in the future, much like Certain Affinity(Halo 2/3 Multiplayer team) have with 343i.
After a certain amount of years working on the same franchise even the most passionate and patient of developers want to work on something different.
What Perjoss says is definitely true. Just look at Beenox; under Activision, literally the only games they've done in the last 10 years have been Spider-Man games. They did wonderful work with Shattered Dimensions, but that was their last good one. Their most recent iteration literally feels like they phoned it in. They clearly weren't enjoying developing that game.
There is only 1 bungie employee at 343, there used to be 4 but they left.
Also, are you trying to say that only the "passionate" devs want to work on the same game for 30 years, i can see why Bungie & Epic moved on.
The Twitch stream failed for me yesterday, in adiition to blocky streaming it stopped completely on several occasions. Gears 4 looked awful because of the stream; a blocky dark mess. I switched to Youtube live streaming afterwards...everything came through crystal clear in HD.
That looked like a generic third person shooter bro. Best part of that was the storm.
fully agree.. looks and plays like the previous ones. nothing wowing from that gameplay sequence. it's generic and really lacking innovation.
I loved the previous Gears but my expectations for the first next-gen entry were a bit higher tbh. I'll still play it with friends but I'm not sure whether "Been there done that in 1080p" can keep me interested for too long. Horizon is a prime example of proper videogame evolution.
Lol. Generic FPS. Ok bro.
Like most debuts, we've really seen nothing. Just a taste to wet our lips, nothing more. Kind of hard to pass judgement on something when you're holding nothing.
Generic tps? bro please, get out of here its gears, this game freaking madeit for tps!
Gears of War judgement was garbage. You can say bc it is gears of war they can do no wrong, but judgement made me quit the franchise because it was poorly done and I don't see them improving the series for the better.
This alone put the nail in sonys e3 conference imo
Haha No :/ gears gameplay did not blow any minds what so ever.
Only a blind fanboy would even say that Gears 4 and Halo 5 gameplay shown during the conference were anything amazing or mindblowing. As 2 of the biggest Xbox franchises there is, what they showed back there was a huge let down. It screams GENERIC
It's basically the same Gears of War with the same art style, the same steroid one dimensional character line up and probably the same next to non existent story line game. Nothing made me go... "WTF!! I need an XBONE NOW!!" when I saw it... That BC announcement on the other hand though, now that got my attention...
It's basically the same Gears of War with the same (amazing) art style, the same steroid one dimensional character line up (who cares?) and probably the same next to non existent story line game (probably weren't paying attention). But you forgot to add the greatest third person gameplay possible ever. You do know we play games for GAMEPLAY right? So there fixed.
It certainly wasn't COD. Might be best to not deduce an entire game based only on a few minutes oF a gameplay trailer. I'm sure there will be hours more gameplay that the game gives. Let's wait and see.
I thought it looked really terrible You literally couldn't see anything. Gears of NoLights Besides, straightforward third person shooters are kinda outdated
See that's what they have been saying for a while now it's going to be dark and go back to it's roots which means it should be up there with the first one, hopefully they can get the MP right like gears 1 which was easily the best MP game of last gen.
Gears 1 was a hit because it had incredible graphics for its time. It won't work this time
Gears 1 was amazing because of the multiplayer. .. If you missed out on it. That's your loss. Gears 1 was easily the best mp fun I had last gen.
Warhawk wants a word with you
I likled Warhawk too...Gears 1 was really ****ing fun tho.
Are you on serious? Have you ever played gears of war? One of the best moments of the game is darkness, it's a survival horror mixed with action. And you realize dark areas of any game look like that right? https://www.youtube.com/wat...
I think they made it dark on purpose to cover up the bad textures.
Uncharted Vibe.....really ¬¬ If they didn't have their massive armour on and the movement was more freely where you could climb over things and jump to new platforms with ease THEN he could say that. It wasn't bad though but it was a bad demo to show us...far too dark to make out what was going on.
I'll say UC was not the first game I thought of to compare it to when I watched the game play. I even went back and rewatched it with that in mind and it didn't have that vibe. No platform elements or sarcastic remarks from the lead character or his sidekicks. Only thing it had in common with UC was it was TPS, and it had some set piece game play...nothing that gives UC it's vibe. Can't say I was super impressed with what I saw, as it was dark the first time I watched it, and I went in biased the 2nd time due to CliffyB's tweet. It was OK, and I'd be interested in seeing more. Since I don't keep up with the series I can't really say how it compares to the prior ones.
I think he meant, the banter between characters, and little more set-piece style moments.
Gears,QB and Scalebound are the only xb1 exclusive that would make me buy an xb1 but IMO that Gears 4 showing was weak. I couldn't see a damn thing.
it just not the same without marcus fenix. it's like uncharted without Nathan drake. not quite the same.
Weather effects and atmosphere were pretty awesome. Can't wait to experience it myself.
Those are what really impressed me the most.
Really? I couldn't even see anything.
There is no shame in wearing glasses.
The game looked good because it looked heavily influenced by TLOU. I never liked the Gears games which seemed to stupid fir me but I can see me liking this, Still paled compared to the expectations on that franchise.
I think the gears 4 looked great! You people that are complaining that it didnt show anything new are most likely not a gears fan and wont/cant buy it anyway. Uncharted 4 looked exactly like all the other uncharted hames, nothing new it terms of gameplay shown uet im sure U4 will be just as good as ever.Gears 4 will be one of the best games next year better beleive it...
It was awesome. I enjoyed the demo.
"nothing new it terms of gameplay shown" That's odd cause I played every Uncharted game and I dont recall ever doing any of the stuff they showed in the gameplay trailer. But as you are clearly making excuses for Gears and putting down Uncharted its pretty clear you have a bias and most likely an agenda.
So u dont recall hiding behind walls? You dont recall climbing buildings? You dont recall melee combat? I have to question exactly what trailer you were watching. The only new gameplay i saw was a vehicle section that went on just a few mins to long, a grappling hook, and maybe air executions. Its safe to say that there was VERY little new in terms of gameplay in the U4 demo. Once again like u i have played and beat every uncharted game "check my gamer tag deethagee" and im sure U4 like gears 4 will both be great games.
The very same argument could be made for Gears nothing new really, all I'm saying is you're nit picking and making excuses to dislike something if that's your thing then so be it. But I think the thing I like the most about your reply is the fact that you claimed there was no new game play and then you went on to list new game play so you pretty much proved my point for me.
I'll say, Uncharted blow Gears 4 out of the water. The driving sequence was awesome.
Who the hell were those characters?
LOL, he wishes.
Wait didn't UC4 freeze lol and they had more time to polish whereas G4 didn't and looked awesome. It's gears Why change Coalition just got rights....stop stop
I see some gears of war haters in here,more than likely sony fans smh.gears4 looked great.uncharted is washed up sorry.u can't compare that game to a high caliber game such as gears.the last good uncharted game was 2,then they ran out of ideas with 3 lol.
Agree gears definitely trumps it. Even Tomb raider looks better then uncharted
Gears looked like Resident Evil and was graphically unimpressive. Uncharted is graphically best looking action game to date.
said no one EVER
Those glasses you have on must be sponsored by Microsoft.
His reaction was so unique and interesting! /sarcasm
Uncharted's looking way better than Gears – at least I could see it.
Even though i am a gears fan, the footage of GOW4 was underwhelming for me. it just looked like the same ol' same ol' (Aside from the improved graphics, etc.) they really need to increase the scale of the campaign.
The new Gears of War gameplay trailer was so damn boring. Good thing the Ultimate Collection is coming to PC :D
Are you for real? It was exactly what gears should be, dark and gritty. They showed like 2 minutes of a teaser, its a year and a half away. They could've showed a CGI trailer but they were honest. Seriously don't know what people want these days. I was crazy excited and I come on here and read stuff like this. Oh well doesn't matter, it was amazing to me.
