Phil Spencer: Next Gears of War Probably Third Person, but Black Tusk’s IP “Paused” For the Right Time

by (2 hours ago) 0

Microsoft Game Studios head honcho Phil Spencer is probably the person that best knows what’s going on with the the next Gears of War on Xbox One, and with the studio working on it, Black Tusk. Today he took to Twitter to give a few more details on the whole issue.

First of all he responded to a user asking if the next Gears of War would be a strategy game, and luckily the answer was quite different:

I’d imagine we’d start with a building on the 3rd person roots of the franchise.

He also answered to a question about the possibility of Black Tusk’s own IP being scrapped in favor of Gears of War, mentioning that there’s still a chance for us to see something come out of it in the future.

We never really “scrap” anything we do, we might hit pause and wait for the right time but we keep all the work.

Hopefully we’ll hear more about that IP soon enough, but I wouldn’t expect much at least for a year or so. It definitely looked impressive when we saw the tech demo at E3, even if theoretically it wasn’t a game announcement.

So basically he is saying: "We don't care about new IPs as long as our old IPs make us more money than third world countries..." Come on MS, you have tons of money, you should be supporting new IPs :/

Oh well, I guess a new gears will sell more units than a new IP at the end of the day

I told you guys the new IP was dropped but the people here "No they have two teams" lol... they are a small studio with only one team and MS dropped the new IP to favor of Gears.

I'd rahter have that new IP.



Well at least they won't shoot off all their new IP load early in the generation like last time. That way people are still gonna see new IPs in mid-gen.

 I don't think that way, I just type that way.

My first bet.

Uncharted 4 will sell around 8-10 million with the rejuvenated playstation brand.
