No Gears Of War at E3

Weird how there was no Gears showing of any sort at E3, especially considering it's MS' 2nd biggest gaming franchise. Really weird. Even a teaser trailer would have accomplished confirmation of the series continuing.

Meh, We don't need any more Gears of War, story is done, gameplay is stale imo

It's obviously in no state to be shown, and they're doing the right thing by waiting for the right time when they have more to show - Like gameplay.

Smart Move.....

Hey maybe they'l just hold their own conference outside of any gaming convention....... Its the best way to ensure it doesn't get overshadowed by anything.....

If I were Microsoft I wouldn't wait until E3 to announce anything...... Just put the damn thing on You Tube and hold my own convention where every body can get a taste of that sweet, meaty, Xbox-y Goodness !

They should do these things on their own terms on their own turf.

It was a good move, I can't believe the gamers that bark about games when they won't see them until months down the line. 2015 doesn't mean as soon as the ball drops on that year--it doesn't guarantee any dates really. That just so very well could mean Christmas 2015. I would have loved to see a new Gears game, but I agree--not if it's not ready. I have enjoyed two new games...Titanfall and Ryse was good for me. I'm going to give Sunset Overdrive a try as well when it releases. A new console, new gen--I'm glad that Microsoft brought new games into the fold. Not just rehashes of older games. Not that we would not like those older games, but at least they allowed new franchises to put their fingerprints on this gen the same way Gears did on the 360.

No it wasnt...

Couple months ago they said black tusk will be working on it. There is absolutely nothing to show. Expect a teaser berxt e3 for a 2016 release at the minimal

and I'm glad it wasn't. We need a very long break from Gears of War IMO.

I was extremely let down by this. Maybe they are really early in development though.

I was a little disappointed as well, but I imagine we will get something next year at E3. Meanwhile we have a bunch of other great games to play.

They just announced a couple of months ago they acquired the IP and named a studio that was working on it. The game not being shown at E3 wasn't a surprise it's probably not going to come out until at least 2016.

Towards the end they flashed the Gears logo but that was about it. This was a huge let down for me since the only reason I bought X1 was for Gears. I may honestly get rid of my x1 until Gears comes out since I know the earliest we can see a new gears is holiday 2016. This year's e3 was a letdown for all gears fans..

Gears can take a rest for another year or two.

I think if they had shown gears, it would be more gears?

You do know their are more shows coming up including MS's own event. Maybe they don't want to show all of their cards. Id say that Sony blew their wad at E3 and have nothing else planned. I predict announcements of Gears of War 4, Perfect Dark and Battle Toads sometime this Fall!! Would love to see a Mech Assault X1 exclusive as well!!

New developer making GeoW, so they aren't ready to show anything.

Whatever, it's coming and I don't care about trailers.

Well there was a little picture of the logo at e3 but that doesn't really mean much.

I am not getting excited for a new Gears since a new developer is making it, I am glad they didn't show it at E3.

It won't be shown until next years E3. They had just started working on it before the E3, so there really wasn't anything to show yet. I can wait.
