Forums - Microsoft Discussion - Next Gears of War to be on a next-gen console

Annoyingly, Eurogamer have ambiguously titled the article "on next-gen consoles" which suggests that it will be multiplatform and will fuel a "Gears to Playstation!!!" bandwagon.

Obviously it could be multiplatform (though I'm sure MS will secure exclusivity), but Capps' actual words were, while not explicitly "exclusive", also not explicitly "multiplatform".

He said "next console generation". That could mean anything.

That's my point. I'm saying people should wait before concluding how this affects Gears exclusivity.

This next gen or the next next gen?



He already clarified his speaking error. He meant to say if Gears comes out in the next 3 years it will be on Unreal 3, if on Next gen Console it would be on Unreal 4. If anyone thought a new Gears game was not coming in the next couple of years, I have a bridge to sell ya



I think the accountants at epic will tell you otherwise.

Turning down $300m to $400m is hard to do.



I'm not really here!

From Eurogamer:

Capps' comments came in a Q&A session following his speech at the Tokyo Game Show. He began by confirming that Epic has been working on Unreal Engine 4 for the past seven years in preparation for the next hardware generation.

"We're very concerned that the next generation will be massively parallel and most engines won't be able to adapt for that," said Capps.

"

What does that mean exactly? That he can't run Unreal Engine 3 on next gen hardware or what?

I think that's good! I wouldn't want a new gears of war before the next Gen (not saying that the last two weren't fantastic); they'll be able to do more with a next gen game and it's best to keep the franchise fresh and not overload it. It would also make a great launch title for Microsoft's next machine.

I'm interested in that bridge!

jkjk agreed to say no to Gears 3 in a year or two is like turning down a fat check with figures I've never seen before in my life. Gears of War 2 cost so little to make, why say no to Gears 3.

I thought Microsoft had a publishing deal set up with Epic or did I just imagine that? Anyway, releasing it on other consoles imo would be pretty pointless considering that most everyone that would buy it on other consoles would be a bit clueless as far as the storyline goes, but that's just me.



themanwithnoname's law: As an America's sales or NPD thread grows longer, the probabilty of the comment "America = World" [sarcasticly] being made approaches 1.

'if there is a next gears'

whys he even say that?

i think they shouldnt wait that long, the graphics and sales are fine, it should be a one gen trilogy

no guarantee i buy the next box thats for sure



Last year's game of the year turned out to be Silent Hill : Shattered Memories (online GOTY was COD 6).  This year's GOTY leader to me is Heavy Rain.
