Gears of War was one of the bigger franchises to come out of the last generation of gaming consoles, and showed up exclusively on the Xbox 360. Now with the new generation getting started, Microsoft has acquired the rights to the IP and assigned it to Black Tusk Studios, a newly formed company under Microsoft’s umbrella of developers. It is stated that they will still work closely with Epic so that the series stays as an example of what the Unreal Engine can do.
When this information came my way, I was both excited, and a bit worried. The Gears of War franchise consists of four games so far, but after the release of Gears 3, I must admit I had some fatigue from the series. So much so that I skipped over the latest release (Judgement) and haven’t had an urge to play it since. With that said, the Gears games have all been pretty good, high scores from critics and much adoration from fans, the series definitely deserves some attention for its next-gen iteration.
So what’s your take on this? Are you pumped to see Gears coming to Xbox One? Or are you tired of the franchise after four games released thus far? Sound off in the comments below and let us know what you think.
