Gears of War: Bought by Microsoft, New Game in Development

by Cheats.co Staff - Leave a comment

gearsofwar

Gears of War has been a popular third-person shooter series since the first game was released in 2006 for Xbox 360. It dealt with humankind’s struggle against the alien Locust Horde on the planet Sera. Since then, three sequels have followed. The last game to be released was Gears of War: Judgment in 2013. The series won praise for both its single-player and multiplayer modes, with a particularly loyal online community.

Today we learned that Microsoft has bought all rights to the series from Epic Games. In fact, they already have the next Gears of War game in development. The Canadian developers Black Tusk Studios are working on it, and Rod Fergusson, who was previously the series’ director of production, will still be involved in a prominent role. Fergusson had been working with a new studio for 2K games, but has since left them to join Black Tusk.

The Gears of Wars games were always exclusive to the Xbox 360 and Windows, so Microsoft’s ownership should not cause too much of a change. The next entry will probably be made for the Xbox One, and it would not be surprising if the previous games were ported or remade. Since there were many rumors that Judgment would be the end of the series, most fans are pleased with the news – including us!!

Microsoft wants Gears of War on Xbox One

How excited would you be for Gears of War on Xbox One? Just a little bit right? We thought so!

Well it’s nice to know that the possibility of such an event is at least on the minds of some decision makers at Microsoft with Phil Spencer (head of Microsoft Studios) having the following to say when asked about Gears of War during at interview with Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu:

Gears of War is developed by Epic Games, and they’ve been our partners for a long time on Xbox 360. You should ask Epic Games about what they want to do. We haven’t announced anything yet about Gears of War, but we hope to bring it to Xbox One in some form. However, there’s nothing more I can tell you at this time.

The key words being “we hope to bring it to Xbox One in some form” and “you should ask Epic Games about what they want to do” . We all know that Microsoft is not afraid to spend a bit of money to get the games they want… and you could even read into it a little bit further and wonder whether Microsoft and Epic Games have been talking.

Fingers crossed!

Gears of War Receives PC Patch

September 21, 2008 by Cheats.co Staff - Leave a comment

gow

Gears of War has just received a patch that fixes some issues with the PC version. If you have a North American, South American, or Western European copy of the game, you can download this patch. We aren’t sure if Epic Games is working on a patch compatible with the Russian and Eastern European versions or not.

This patch contains no new content. Rather, it fixes the problems the game has with Windows Live and otherwise improves the gameplay. The patch is only 6 MB, so you might as well get the update for a smoother Gears of War experience.

Gears of War PC Rumor

December 12, 2003 by Cheats.co Staff - Leave a comment

gow

Gears of War has proven quite popular with Xbox 360 players. In its first two weeks, it’s sold over 1 million copies, and it’s taken over Halo 2’s place as the top multiplayer game on Xbox Live. Will Gears of War come to the PC now?

New rumors suggested it would, after PC Gamer published a story that included a picture of Gears of War PC box art.

However, Microsoft responded by saying it was an old image included by mistake among other assets sent to PC Gamer. As for Gears of War coming to the PC, Microsoft has “nothing further to announce […] at this time.”

The ambiguity of the statement leaves the possibility open for the future.
