Rumor: Gears of War 3 in Development for Fall 2010

The latest EGM has a rather juicy rumor. Seems that Cliff and the guys at Epic are already hard at work on Gears of War 3 for the Xbox 360. Word is there are plenty of tweaks in the works to the engine and a new 5 player co-op experience. If true, Microsoft has at least another sure fire hit for next fall.


[edited] news post editing, it's actually fall 2010.

The story is too old to be commented.

well that would be good for M$ if they can get Gears 3 out next year , but if they're gonna be using the same engine then I fear they're wont be much improvement over Gears 2

the multiplayer is gonna play like gears of war 2 then i think ill pass till it becomes dirt cheap

SuperM3656d ago

Lets hope they dont rush it, they will need more then a year to finish both versions of the game :P

rhood0223656d ago

They could use the exact same engine and do nothing to the game other than rework some levels (I mean, so far the Gears universe as been contained to a few key locations so it's not like they would have to create all new environments). All they would really need to do is make new cut scenes and maybe add some new weapons and it's definitely possible for a year turnaround.

However, even if they don't add anything new other than the 5 player co-op, and it is literally "Gears 2.5" it'll still be considered the second coming.

Because Halo Wars (ROFL) is all they have for 2009.

Rhoic3656d ago

And Splinter Cell, Halo 3: ODST, Star Ocean, Alan Wake, Mass Effect, Forza Motorsport, Ninja Blade, Velvet Assassin, Huxley, etc.

And lulz... SOULJA BOY!

SullyDrake3656d ago

Splinter Cell: Conviction, Mass Effect 2, and Star Ocean IV are not 100% confirmed exclusives, and the rest don't matter.

It will be 2010, unless they use the exact same engine and graphics they have now.

MiloGarret3656d ago

From the article:

"[EDIT] - Seems it’s not 09 but 2010, which sure as hell makes a lot more sense. Well nice to know that the 360 has at least 2 more years in it."

There, now quiet.

You are such a fanboy. So why is the crappy Unreal Engine 3 licensed so much? It's been updated since Gears 1 on PC, and Gears 2 is running on an updated version(you wouldn't know), higher polygons on all characters, vehicles, weapons, environments, etc. not to mention destructible environments and all that jazz. The unreal engine doesn't chill and stagnate it evolves. Also, Unreal Engine 4 should be ready by next gen(soon). Gears 3 is not coming next year as the update now states, God forbid! we are still playing Gears 2.

A reminder to all fanboys: Gears 2 recently hit 3 million sold mark in four weeks, while Gears 1 hit that number in 10 weeks. Good for you Microsoft and of course Epic!

Danja3656d ago

UE3 is outdated dude...if they made Gears using the same engine they did for GEARS 2 obviously the game wouldn't be much of an improvement over Gears's a known fact..

Gears 2 wasn't even that much of an improvement over the 1st Gears graphical other than it had better lighting and more colors and bigger environments..destructible environments and vehicles...which can be found in just about every other war game...

and I made my comment before the article was updated , and I didn't state ne thing bad about the game....and I will say it again the UE3 is OUTDATED..!!!

mikeslemonade3656d ago

HAHA Gears 1.9 is coming out in Fall 2010. I don't see how it will look any better than Gears "2". What can they really add? The difference is Resistance 3 will be bigger and look better because the PS3 right now is only using less 60% power.

vhero3656d ago

who cares when its out as its gonna be multi platform as MS only had a license for 2 games as they didn't think the series was gonna be so big hahaha btw before you fanboys start that was a FACT google it.

BattleAxe3656d ago

I wonder when they'll anounce the PS3 version........

Koolaid3656d ago

The people saying "oh it won't look any better than gears 2" are idiots. I'm guessing those people are ps3 fanboys, and don't even play gears. If so, then your opinion in this topic means jack anyway. If you were a gears fan, you wouldn't even care. I couldn't care less if it looks the same as Gears 2. I don't care if it only has one new gameplay machanic. If it aint broke don't fix it. Gears is awesome. End of. Epic will no doubt top the Gears 2 campaign. You ps3 people can say what you want, every point you try and make is pathetic. You don't have a leg to stand on. I'll be enjoying Gears 3 when it comes, along with millions of others.

interrergator3656d ago

hope the ending is alot better and hope and the multiplayer could use a little work

RemmM3656d ago

They are just rushing out sequals to make more $$$$! Its a waste.. especially on the 360. They should wait for the X Box 720.

ia_studio3656d ago

ps3Owns3603656d ago

360 only have gears to seriously 360 only have gears 2 and fable 2.SONY BUY THE COMPANY EpiC!.OR HAVE A RELATIONSHIP with them.then epic can show the real limits of gears 3 on the ps3 engine.cliffy is a ps3 fan but again he has to obey his contract with yesterday on G4 channel cliffy said he would love to put gears 3 on ps3 to show all of his ideas that cannot be showed on 360.

jcfilth3656d ago (Edited 3656d ago )

and coming to PS3 :o lol

It will be a rushed mediocre game with nothing new or innovative like every other 360 game, a move of desperation by Microsoft just to fill up a little that big empty space in 2009 of no games. They will not care if its mediocre or not since they know that, if their costumers were stupid enough to by a faulty console and pay to play, they would buy a game that adds nothing new or better than the others, they know the name will sell by itself along with their well known overhyped-marketing strategy.

BLUR1113656d ago (Edited 3656d ago )


and also they claim 360 will not have EXCLUSIVES in 2009. Oh but let's just let the year 2009 hit please and then what will they say next.

Capt CHAOS3656d ago

They are all sitting around, waiting for xmas to arrive. All 100 odd (or more people) just sitting around, drinking some sherry and mince pies.


I'd be surprised if atleast ONE person wasn't already working on the designs of gears of war 2, 3 months ago..

ELite_Ghost3656d ago

stfu 1 bubble boys!!! LOL

Panthers3656d ago

Pumpin them out. I hate this. At least take enough time to make a significant upgrade.

SuperM3656d ago (Edited 3656d ago )

Yea 2009 sounds like atleast a year to early. Before we know it Gears of war is the new need4speed. It will sell like hotcakes though, but lets hope epic is not trying to take advantage of that and will make a significant upgrade instead.

Edit: I actually think they might just make some sort of expansion though for next year. Could be the Gears2 announcement on the VGA show. Tbh i think MS might be a little concerned about their lineup vs sony in 09, so it wouldnt surprise me if they pushed epic to make an expansion or something, so they have some more stuff to give out next year.

JeffGUNZ3656d ago

Well yeah, I expected a 3rd GoW when they said it was going to be a TRIOLOGY

shovelbum3656d ago

Now we know when the Xbox 720 releases - Fall 2010.

pixelsword3656d ago

Must be a new character, or the redshirt...

Either way, interesting development... and in '09 at that.
