Gears of War overlord Cliff Bleszinski has poured cold water on any hope of seeing the brutal blaster set up shop on PlayStation 3.
Quizzed by GameTrailers as to whether or not developer Epic Games may consider porting the series to Sony's console or bring a new IP to the system, Bleszinski stated, “I would love to work on new IP, I'm a big believer in just creating new universes."
"We have a great deal with Microsoft. It's a great setup, I mean multiplatform games... Call Of Duty's huge, right?"
"But the way that we have our setup with Microsoft, when you combine the marketing benefits, the usability benefits, them helping out with dedicated servers... it just makes more sense [to us] for Gears Of War to remain an Xbox exclusive for the foreseeable future."
Bleszinski’s bombshell comes following Epic Games bigwig Mike Capps’ comments at GDC earlier this year, where Capps admitted he would “love” to see Gears of War make the transition to Sony’s black box.
Gears of War 3 hits Xbox 360 in fall 2011.
