I'm so happy that MS is saying that they will not rush this game and it will be in development for a good amount of time. It seems we won't see another Gears game for at least two years maybe longer especially with Halo 5 coming in 2015.
Here's the deal in another 2-3 years from now we will have an actually craving to get back to playing some Gears. By then it will have been several years since we seen a Gears game and we all should have built up that mojo again by then. This is great MS will finely tune a new Gears game and give it a spit polish shine with added innovations and new ideas.
This is a really great thing glad to see MS making wise choices and looking to keep a high caliber franchise just that high caliber and taking time and not trying to burn out the franchise.
Should be great.
