Anyone think Gears of War will get the remaster treatment?

Remasters are a big thing these days and MS owns the GOW franchise now. And they're doing the Master Chief collection, 4 remastered Halo games in one package. Anybody think they'll do the same with Gears 1-Judgement or perhaps just Gears 1-3?

@Wickerman777: Sure, I can see a GeoW 1-3 Remastered package after Black Tusk finishes their work on their first game which happens to be the new Xbone GeoW game.

I would be nice if they did that. But I don't expect it.

Sort of like the Halo: Masterchief Collection is coming this Fall to bring people up to speed and bridge the gap to Halo 5, I expect a Gears of War: The "___" Collection to bring people up to speed and bridge the (likely) long gap to a new Gears of War.

Microsoft has to know that this would be a hot seller on Xbox One, and therefore I fully expect it to happen. After all, not only do I expect it would sell very well, but the series is worthy of a remaster for Xbox One. It was, to be sure, one of the very best game series of last generation, played and loved by millions of people. Not bringing it to Xbox One would be a bit of a travesty, and most certainly a missed opportunity.

I know I would be a day one buyer and be more than happy to devote the necessary hours to replaying this great series once again.

I sure as hell hope so because it's the main reason I own a 360 and a solid reason to finally get the XB1....just as @nyc05 said, it would be a day1 buy for me.

I really hope they remake it. Even if it's not the whole trilogy, at least remake the first. GoW1 was the only and main reason I became a Xbox guy. This will be a Day 1 Midnight launch purchase for me, guaranteed.

I hope not.Getting sick of remastered games coming out.As much as I would love the Halo remastered collection,I don't want to see it on every game franchise.Honestly,what's it going to be like when the next gen consoles come out in 8-10 years from now,nothing but remastered games.Enough already.

It looked nice but hated how control how you hid behind things.

I'd love to see this, though I'd have very high expectations if they did it.

  • I'd expect the campaign section to have full remakes of the Gears 1 (including the currently PC exclusive mission) & 2 campaigns as well as Gears 3 and RAAM's Shadow brought up to 1080p.
  • A new multiplayer engine, with EVERY map from all three games (including DLC) remade for it, and all multiplayer characters (including DLC characters and the ones from Judgment) included.
  • Game Modes to be reduced to Warzone, Execution, Annex, Guardian, Horde and Beast (I also wouldn't want it, but I'd tolerate TDM's return)
  • Multiplayer also needs to be CoG vs Locust (shouldn't even need to say this, but after Judgment...)
  • Weapon skins could return, but only if they are included in the package and not sold later, armor skins should not be brought into this.
  • Also, though not part of the main wishlist, I'd be OK if they also added in Judgment's Campaign and Overrun. Also doing that they could also bring in Judgment's multiplayer maps, as long as they where remade to work with traditional Gears multiplayer, rather than Judgment's.

It would be pretty cool if they did a Gears of War Collection for Xbox One. My guess is if they do, they may redo the visuals of one and two to bring them in line with the technology used in Gears of War 3. All DLC will probably be included (i.e. the expansion packs and map packs) and it will be one of the 1080p at 60 frames per second affairs. I doubt Gears of War Judgement would be included (just like how ODST, Reach, and Halo Wars are not in the Halo Collection) but obviously that could also happen.

If this is done right, maybe with a beta access to Gears of War Xbox One (I.e. the new game being made for the Xbox One) and launches around holiday next year (with the next Gears game launching in the early/mid 2016) then I could see this being something done to bring people back into Gears of War (or bring new people in for those that missed it).

That is how I see it could potentially go down, but obviously I do not know for sure. The more content the better though and as long as it is done at a reasonable price I would be interested.

Hopefully GOW3 does, love that multiplayer, it would have an increase of popularity again

Personally, i think gears is dead. It just felt like they were churning it out cor the sake of it. Without thought for a proper grounded story just plugging things out of the air.

They should let it die

If Gears got the "remaster treatment", they would be by far the most gorgeous games this generation would see as they were probably the best looking games last gen. Id love the Gears series to get remastered!!
