Xbox One Gears Of War ‘May Not Be Made By Epic’ – Microsoft
Microsoft’s Phil Spencer has talked about the future of Gears of War and said that an Xbox One entry in the series won’t necessarily be made by Epic Games.
While Spencer indicated that he felt Epic would be the “right team” to work on an Xbox One Gears of War game, he also didn’t rule out the possibility of using another team to develop the next Gears game.
Of course, the last Gears of War game, Gears of War: Judgment, was developed by People Can Fly, so getting a studio other than Epic to work on Gears of War is something that has already been done.
Spencer also told IGN that a new Gears of War would have to freshen things up a bit, given that the game “ran its course on 360”.
As part of that rethink, Spencer suggested that they would “maybe make it more gritty”.
It’s pretty gritty already, isn’t it?!
This isn’t the first time that Spencer has mentioned the possibility of a Gears of War game on Xbox One, so it’s certainly not going to be a surprise if we see one announced somewhere down the line.
We would be a little surprised, however, if it wasn’t Epic that ended up taking the reigns on the first Xbox One Gears of War game.
