With the success of Gears of War on the Xbox 360, and its continuing powerful surge, its no surprise that rumours are abound for more from the epic Shooter...
4 million sold, of course there's gonna be a trilogy
Microsoft already confirmed themselves they want a trilogy and its Microsoft's IP anyways. Also Cliffy said there would be a sequel.
Only person to shoot it all down was Mark Rhein but his word counts for nothing since Microsoft own the IP and it was Cliffy B's game in the first place.
if there are NOMORE gears games, thats confidence
Really now? Wanna come toss my salad for practice just in case there arent any more sequels? Just trying to help.
It's not even a rumour it's already happening.
and there's also a movie in the pipeline.
F*** the movie...will be a silly Hollywood crap!
anyways yea Gears of war 2 :D
This was confirmed so many times already. Gears 1 year, Halo the next.
Is nothing powerful if they put this on the PS3 the graphics will look the same or better anybody that thinks the XBox 360 graphics are superior would have to be blind considering Unreal Engine 3 makes the graphics happen like that, thats! why they call it Unreal Engine 3 and not the Unrealistic Engine 3.
hey kiddo, this is the grown ups section, so go back and play with the sony kids
why the hell are sony kids so jealous?
mmm... what's so powerful? mmm.. let's start by saying that Gears development started before the xbox 360 hardware was finalized... it's relatively an old game. The game was released in Nov 2006 (almost 1 year ago)..... here is the interesting part... no PS3 game match this game in terms of graphics yet.. and everyone was expecting that this was going to happen with Resistance... they didnt... now everyone is expecting KillZone 2 to be the one to set the standard in terms of graphics... we will soon know... I don't know what's your definition of power... Having the best looking game on any console.. running on an inferior console as you believe... and not match by the super computer with a brain on its own(cell) is power... don't you think..
and by the way... Gears is not the only game using Unreal Engine... many games are using it... Even on the PS3 many developers are using the engine... too.
Your grammar is lacking. Huked onn fonix don gude fore yu...
go on the ps3 forums and leave teh adults alone wesus wice i hate sony fanboys wii60 ftw!!!
That's f'in brilliant on MS's part. I didn't think of it like that. They can keep that going for the 360's entire life cycle.
Making the final Halo for 360 upgradeable when you run it on the next console. Xbox 1080.
I agree; MS is playing hard ball with heavy hitters for the 360. I wonder what next years big games will be? With all the good games for the ps3, 360, pc and wii its a good time to be a gamer.
is that if microsoft and epic release new missions game types and maps well eat it up.....marcus fenix and master chief should be in a game 2gether ill buy it!!
A downloadable expansion pack would sell millions.
As Bob would say: Gimmie, gimmie, gimmie - I need, I need, I need
As much that it would only be possible if Microsoft didn't own the IP secondly it would cost EPIC tons more money because of the GPU's inability to do HDR+AA and multi texturing all of which would have to be emulated via software and done by the CELL.
Why spend tons more cash when its easier just making it all work with the 360 hardware?
Disagree if you want but I notice that only the Sony PS fans who are seriously lacking in any positive comebacks in which they can hold a mature conversation of any sort.
But funny that I own a 360 and PS3 and still can get called a fanboy lol.
I say fu(k them. They act like that because they know the truth just as much as you but they fear it instead of accepting it. 1up for you my friend.
well duh. It's only a matter of time but it won't come out for another year or more. So I wouldn't hold your breath for it quite yet
u guys are right, it was gears last crimbo, halo 3 this crimbo and it will be gears 2 next crimbo, if you look at it like that then the next couple of crimbos are going to be very good for 360 sales
edit:: Haha yep...
I was thinking the same thing...
I wonder how they will follow the first game. Will it be a prequel or a full featured sequel? Even a spin-off is possible. Imagine a GOW special spin-off where you control locust in singleplayer and invaded the earth during Emergence day!
Thats a really good idea. I would think that any spin-off would occur after the original series is finished to get the last breath of life from the series. I would think that if they were to do a trilogy, the second game would be on the 360 and the last one of the next xbox. This would convince a large amount of people to get the next xbox just for this game, look at halo 3.
Can't wait for GoW2. What's so great about GoW's story is that there is a lot mystery surrounding Marcus, the Locust, the Locust Queen, and Marcus's father. I love stories that keep you guessing on what the plot is and how everything is going to fall into place later on.
My only request for the new game.
For the doubters, Gears gave me more of a sense of being in an intense "Battle" than ANY other game - more so than Halo and COD(both of which I also love)You HAVE to use cover.
Yes, Gears is pretty, but what is real special is the mood it creates - so the artistic vision. Kind of like RE4 - great grapics for last gen, but what made it a classic is the mood created.
Anyway, never mind me, I'm just having fond memories of a great game...I should put it in tonight...gotta try to beat INSANE...
This just in Gears of War 2 will be exactly 7 minutes longer than the first one.hooray......HASHAHAHHAHHAH AHH
Well I don't really care if GoW2 is the same length as GoW. Playing on insane (hardest difficulty) took me a while to beat, so I'm pretty much indifferent.
Bill when you get another bubble why don't you tell me the lotto numbers for tomorrow? After all you're so good at making accurate predictions.
(if you didn't note already that was sarcasm, i shouldn't have to put this message at the bottom of any reply *sigh*)
Hell yeah, such a popular, such a fun and interesting game why not an other one. I hope the rumors are true!
Around November'ish '08
IMO MS will keep up the big releases around the holidays.
Gears Nov '06
Halo 3 Late Sept '07/GTA4 October' 07
Gears 2 Nov '08
On a side note it was kinda cool seeing the kid in Die Hard 4 playing Gears Of War...lol
it would be nice for gears 2 to come out next Nov, but i doubt it. I think it will come out with release of movie maybe in 2009, but Nov 2008?? i just think thats too soon.... epic is going to need more time. I mean they got Unreal 3 coming out this year which i'm looking forward to almost as much as Halo. You cant expect them to dish out a new game every year? can we??
looks like this will be the real wilde an' craaaazeeee goat of all games !
gears of war 2?!?!?! sick! i hope it comes out soon or just like cartman on south park, i will freeze my self in the mountains until it comes out!!..... but i will awake for halo3 .....but uhh... still... ill do it!!!
I predict that there will also be a Mario sequel in the future.
