Gears of War is now the sole property of Microsoft with developer Black Tusk taking up development. But can it survive without the touch of Epic Games?

Good article as always by miller, at least the article eased my worries about the next gear of war a little bit.

Never saw the appeal of these games, played the first one and found it terribly clunky with a uninteresting story and ridiculous looking character models.
Gears of poop.

Franchise sure is in an odd scenario, however you would imagine that MS have enough money to ensure it succeeds, and given that they just purchased the rights to it seems safe to assume that they are committed to it.

Although I am not a huge Gears of War fan I feel the series is in safe hands… however I feel the series needs more than safe hands. It needs hands that can take a risk and execute it well.

However change it too much and everyone will complain "it's not Gears of War", like they do with every game that changes its mechanics or characters. (DmC, Hitman, Resi 5+ etc)

As a massive gears fan I think the solution is easy. - Prequel.

Talking amongst other Gears fans you'll find that there is a huge appetite to find out what happened prior to the current trilogy.*

So give us what we want, Gears of War - The end of Pendulum. There is so much scope here that it could be another trilogy after all it raged for 79 years (I propose the last 4 or so years.) What's more you can keep Marcus as the main protagonists, Dom as a sidekick and introduce a raft of other support characters including some of the fan favourites. (Allowing us to play as all characters in the multi-player element)

I'm sure everyone wants to know why Marcus ended up in Jacinto prison.

(I'm not interested in Judgement - Seemed like something to keep People Can Fly/Epic Poland busy instead of creating a sequel to the fantastic bulletstorm)

Not really and the problem with Prequel's in any narrative for me is that you know who will not die and removes any tension in the story.

Just make "Gears of War: Online" scrap the story and just work on multiplayer.

Just my thought on it anyway dude.

Open world Gears of War game with the option to have Thrashball matches (much like FFX) would win me over… I am only half joking.

Yeah they already made the game you are referring too where they took a risk and it didn't come off well and that was Judgement.

Create something in between Gears 1 and 2 and they might be on to something on the multiplayer.

Sometimes a risk works beautifully though (Resi 4 for example). However I have a feeling the next game will play it safe due to messing everything up with Judgement.
