Gears Of War on Xbox One: E-Day ‘really interesting to explore’
Gears Of War on Xbox One is only a few weeks into production at Black Tusk Studios, but there’s already much debate about when the game should be set and what subjects in Gears lore it should tackle. Favourite among all the options so far is Emergence Day, even among those who used to work on GOW like Joshua Ortega, former writer on Gears 2 and the scribe behind many of the Gears Of War comics.
“E-Day would be a really interesting one to explore,” Ortega told X-ONE in an exclusive interview. “It has a lot of emotional impact, it was the day that Dom and Maria lost their children, when humans had been fighting humans for so long. The war was finally over, and then they had to take up arms against a greater threat. I feel like that’s the most compelling gap to fill for sure.”
