In what may be one of the most shocking announcement ever made, Epic Games design director Cliff Bleszinski told RipTen that if Gears of War 3 is a success, he would be up for the idea of making more games set in the Gears universe.
“Well, theres always the Peter Jackson route, right? Do The Hobbit or something like that,” Bleszinki told RipTen. “I mean, were business people. Gears 1 and 2 sold about 6 million copies, so if this game comes out and, God willing, sells 8 or 10 million it would be completely dumb to not do another one, right? Its just business 101. So, I mean, the key is figuring out whats appropriate. What makes sense for this connected world that were moving into? So, that remains to be seen. Thats the million dollar question…”
Seeing as how Gears of War 3 is the fastest pre-ordered game ever on the Xbox 360, I don’t really think there’s much worry over the game’s success.
