    Gears of War for Xbox One

    http://www.gamersbliss.com/2013/07/1...-the-xbox-one/
    Would welcome another hGEOW but want MS to concentrate on more new IPs.


    You could question the fact that the latest/fourth game released in the Gears of War franchise; Gears of War: Judgment, certainly did not hold up to the popularity of the trilogy along with the lead on all three previous games, Cliff Blesinski as well as, franchise manager Rod Fergusson among many others had left Epic Games after the trilogy ran its course. Though the franchise is still considered a Microsoft exclusive. We are coming into a new generation of gaming and it appears that though there has been little to no info circulating regarding a Gears of War title for the Xbox One; now there seems to be a confirmation to a certain degree of a new prequel to all the games in development for the Xbox One.

    A journalist from MyXboxLive seems to have spoke to a source close to the development of the game and was given some information about a Gears of War prequel on Xbox One. Apparently the way the original trilogy focused much on Marcus Fenix the Xbox One game will focus on a new character as the franchise is “taking the story back to the emergence before locust” according to my source. This will open up a whole new world of possibilities. While the game will be taken fairly far back from the days of ‘Emergence Day’ it will not be completely unrecognizable as “fans will get to see Dom’s Brother and a few other fan favs”. Dom Santiago’s brother, Carlos Benedicto Santiago will be a playable character. In the book series, Carlos died saving the life of Marcus Fenix in the Aspho Fields Wars two years before the emergence of the Locust. With that said, seeing the return of Marcus Fenix would not be so much of a stretch however he will not be the main character the game focuses on.

    Not only does the time the game will take place leave an open book when it comes to the plot and where the story can go, but Carlos who is not even to be the “new” character the game will revolve around, though since he will be playable in the game he has been in many different scenarios in the novels. Not only did Carlos fight in the Aspho Field Wars saving Marcus, but he fought in the Dushin and Sarfuth border as well. So with no official title, or plot, it leaves the game open to go in many directions. Carlos, Dom and Marcus join the Coalition of Ordered Government together according to the novels. While none of this information has been officially confirmed by Microsoft or Epic Games, it seems to be that the game at least is some stage of development as the Gears of War franchise is still an exclusive one to Microsoft. With the right development and direction, a new Gears of War game could revitalize the franchise as well as giving gamers even more of a reason to purchase an Xbox One.

    I've always enjoyed the series so I wouldn't mind another one. The game does get repetitive, though.

    I would like to see a new one, but only that. I was pretty tired of the franchise after 2, I was struggling with 3.

    Epic can do better than rehashing this again.

    I think a new story leading up to the current plot would be awesome.

    No, I'm pretty sure he's just saying exactly what he meant. GoW has always looked pretty great, it would be interesting to see how it looks on XBO with UE4.0.

    Story really hasn't been Gears of War's strongest asset, the setting and everything else is definitely a good set-up for one.

    I do hope if they bring it back next-gen, we get some better characters.

    With the most of the good developers gone from Epic they should just make a new IP and go back to Gears later. I actually was one of those people who enjoyed Bulletstorm.

    I'm a little burnt out on gears. The third one was a bit meh to me, but I'd rather see a new Unreal Tournament. Gears would look insane though.
