Epic VP Mark Rein has told VG247 that there is no "ten-year plan" in place for the Gears of War franchise, despite comments to the contrary made by Gears 2 writer Josh Ortega at Comic Con last weekend.
how long has unreal and UT been going? pretty sure over 10+ years. I doubt they are going to just let gears go away without milking it for everything it's worth toys clothes movies ect...
They are already milking it in those ways..
I don't know why you fanboys complain about milking. If something is that good, continue to make it. Halo as we know it was a trilogy. And they made a RTS out of an amazing story. So what? It's good so it deserves it. How many mgs's have there been? How many tekkens? It's time to get over yourselves ppl.
And why shouldn't they? Everybody is milking, even that divine company called Sony of yours! As long as the games are good, you have no right to complain. All that merchandise ain't obligatory y'know, you could just, well, I don't know, not care?
well sony has a 10 year plan right? Maybe he was mocking them about that or secretly saying its going to come to the ps3 eventually which would be nice!
i thought it was Queers of war and gear 1.5?? everything changed because a possible gears 3 for ps3?? i dont think it will happen seem microsoft will continue to publish the game
I thought it was a 3rd party title and I was under the impression that MS didn't have rights to the franchise like Halo but I'm not sure just assumed. Why you diss'in gears mannnn but gears 1.5 is kind of funny haha
I dont know who has the right to the games but I know that at one point MS and Epic were fighting over the rights to it. MS saying they owned the rights and Epic of course saying that they owned the rights to thier game. They seemed to have come to some kind of agreement over it as they are working together again .
Rein talks mince. Of course there's no '10 year plan' because the plan is 'as long as it sells'.
...it's like movies and sequels...
They need to get a better story writer for the next game. I always laugh when developers start talking about how their games will have "emotional attachments" and "will make you cry" etc. The release trailer for the game was awesome with it's sensitive string music and 'end of mankind' feel. It really got me excited, but the story in the game was worse than the first one. Good thing the gameplay made up for it =)
you sound familiar...
theforum? I don't write in the forum.
i wonder if ms will do a deal for gears 3 or epic will go multiplat,there contract is finished now so there would be plenty more money for them to add ps3 along side pc and 360.
you're a retard shut up
Does he really expect us to believe that the team is only focusing on Gears 2 updates and that work hasn't already begun on Gears 3?
I would think story and concept art maybe but not Development... The engine is built and not much needs doing really until they know where they are going with it. Also adding a level and getting 10 bucks a pop is a lot cheaper then making a whole new game and marketing and packaging and so on... it's an easy money maker. Edit: IMHO They are probably devoting a lot of time the the PC version... optimizing and adding new content and such... that is just my best guess though as to why they have not started on 3 yet...
My guess would be theyre going to wait to launch their next major title on UE4 which is in development atm. Can't say whether it'll be gears related or not.
Wouldn't it be nice if Sony started sentences with: "There is no 10-year plan for...(insert variable x)" That would save on Sony BS. And for Sony, anything saved is a good thing.
