Gears of War


 

Because Black Tusk’s Gears of War game for Xbox One must “reignite franchise and grow it,” the studio won’t be quickly producing a Gears title, Microsoft Studios head Phil Spencer said on Twitter.

At the end of January, Microsoft announced that they had acquired the rights to Gears of War from Epic Games, and that development would be handled by Black Tusk Studios. Rod Fergusson, executive producer for the first three Gears of War games, was hired back from 2K Games in order to manage Black Tusk’s Vancouver-based studio.

At the time of this announcement, Black Tusk had only been working on the next-gen Gears of War for about a week. It stands to reason, as Spencer indicates in his Tweet, that the project is still in pre-production—planning stages. As such, it isn’t likely that we’ll see a Gears of War on Xbox One sooner than fall 2015. More likely, it’ll release sometime 2016.
