Phil Spencer:

It’s Epic’s franchise. You and I both know that. I can’t make any assurances about anybody else’s franchise. I’m a huge fan of the franchise. I want to continue to work with Gears. I think there’s a lot of life left in that franchise. We had an internal discussion on it even yesterday. It’s something that’s active in discussion about what we can do with Gears. Obviously, I know [Epic's management] Tim Sweeney, Mark Rein, Jay Wilbur incredibly well, so nothing to announce yet and I’d say, yes, there’s nothing even pending that I’m holding to announce, but I understand the importance of the franchise to the Xbox platform and to gamers—I’d say gamers first. It’d be great to do something forward with that franchise.

XB1's just came out but already losing exclusives... How times change.

I was done with gears after the third game. They are going to have to do some significant changes to get me to play again.

Didn't we already hear this a few weeks back?

Also it doesn't say that Gears is coming to PS4

The lemmings have owned what?

Gears sucks.

But it'd still be funny to see it on Ps4.

I played this game when i had the Xbox 360 back then, i played the third installment again with my brothers 360 and i say this as an opinion, this franchise is boring

#10 Posted by _Matt_ (8867 posts) -

i) Gears is shite

ii) lack of confirmation

iii) please just stop.

@Gue1:

Epic didn't say that.

But, does it really matter? Did the world end when Sony lost Final Fantasy or Metal Gear?

#13 Posted by KratosYOLOSwag (312 posts) -

It's been rumored for a long time now that Gears will either stay dead or come to PS4. Even though the series sucks it would be pretty big ownage if it came to PS4 since its one of xboxes flagship titles. Many people would switch over from xbox.

oh epic games, get back to unreal tournement pc only please.

It says it's coming gamers as opposed to the xbone so I guess that confirms it.

Not sure it would even matter if Epic releases another Gears as mediocre as the last couple.

Epic seems to always do this. They create a genre-defining hit...then milk it and bleed away the things that made it enjoyable.

Case in point? Unreal Tournament. UT '99 was a classic. A defining game. 2003 and 2004 were solid, though perhaps a bit busy as they walked slowly away from what made UT '99 great and into vehicular combat. By the time they released UT3, they had lost the very spirit of what made UT '99 a game of legend. The easy to understand design and philosophy of maps in the early games turned into unwieldy mazes in UT3. Maps became often times too big or too ugly for their own good. Some vehicles simply broke the game in many ways (the War of the Worlds walker thing). The result? That game died within months of release. The community tried to embrace it, but had to walk away from that mess with great sadness.

So we see the same with Gears. Weapon designs and balance haven't been really enjoyable since Gears 1, and seemingly every release has brought more annoyances than enjoyment. I would not be surprised if the next Gears turns off long-time Gears players forever, just as the UT3 did the UT base which had been strong for nearly a decade.

Your story links through to this one from Kotaku.

http://kotaku.com/whats-next-for-the-xbox-one-1471212785

That story contains this quote:

"He deferred to Epic on the question on the state of Gears. I asked Epic what was next and if Gears would still be Xbox-only. They declined to comment. "

So there is no confirmation it is coming to PS4 yet. Correct?

Epic didn't even demo their new engine on xbone yet, must look pretty bad on it : )

#38 Posted by lundy86_4 (43009 posts) -

Epic didn't even demo their new engine on xbone yet, must look pretty bad on it : )

So, because they haven shown it on X1, it must be bad? Argumentum ad Ignorantium... Shit.

No other reason not to except for fear of it looking way worse.

So, Argumentum ad Ignorantium. Well done on the fallacy.

finally, the only reason xbox flirted in my mind was gears of war,

no if only shadow complex will break those chains and release elsewhere

#42 Edited by Jankarcop (8976 posts) -

xbox isn't meant for exclusives. its something you buy when you can't afford other systems.

This isn't even remotely confirmed.

every multiplat is worse on xbone and to have its lastgen graphics king engine look worse would be very bad news.

I'm not debating here. You're using an illogical fallacy. That's pretty embarrassing, in and of itself.

There is not much ownage, this would be an average game on the playstaton scale of games. Also there is no confirmation.

#47 Posted by XboxDone74 (2047 posts) -

Guh...I mean, this is great that TLHBO...but no way I'll be playing this series...not when I have Uncharted and Vanquish.

Yep, its illogical to assume the reason it has not been shown is because it no doubt looks worse just like every single other engine.
