When Microsoft bought the Gears of War franchise from Epic Games earlier this year, we knew that they could be possibly looking to gear up the franchise for its “Next Gen” debut.
Black Tusk, the new developer of the Gears of War franchise, head up by past Gears vet Rod Ferguson, is looking to make it’s debut “very soon”. How soon? My guess would be at the E3 event set to take place from June 10-12th in LA.
Some concept art for the new game has already been hiting Microsoft’s front desk and Ken Lobb of Microsoft Game Stuidos said in an interview, “I actually have tons of respect for [Chuck Osieja, creative director] and all the guys up at Black Tusk,” Lobb told Edge. “I think the reality is what we have is innovative Gears Of War. That’s what I believe they’re going to make.”
No other news about the upcoming Gears is known at this time, such as if his is going to be a continuation of the prequels, or if we will see a reboot of the franchise. Stay tuned to E3 for news on the upcoming franchise.
