No Gears of War 3 until Next Gen

I know Gears 2 had some issues with the online multiplayer, but it was basically my reason for buying a 360 (that and Mass Effect). Very disappointing news.

I just do not belive that. I think in 2-3 years we will get a "surpise" with GoW 3 on the way. Otherwise they are leaving $$$ on the table. Shareholders HATE leaving $$$ on the table.

No big deal. Whatever Epic's other new property is will be out next fall. Even if it doesn't say "Gears" on the box, it's still Epic. It's not like they make a variety of game types.

"Update: Epic Games president Michael Capps claims he misspoke during a Q&A session at the Tokyo Game Show today when he said, "If there were a next Gears of War, that will be for the next console generation, whenever that is." Speaking to Eurogamer after the event, Capps explained that if the next Gears of War - assuming there is one - were to be released in the next "four to five years", it would be for current consoles. Were it to be based on Unreal Engine 4, however, it would have to come out on the next round of consoles, because those are the machines for which Epic is targeting its next generation of money-spinning engine technology.

"If we ship a game in the next few years, it'll be Unreal Engine 3. If we ship a game on next [generation] consoles, it will likely be Unreal Engine 4," he told Eurogamer."



The original article is full of crap anyway, and is showing to be a bad game of telephone.

Good call. Still, if they're not working on Gears 3 now, I hope they get on it soon because I was hoping to be playing it around this time next year. Looks like that won't be happening.

Strange. I heard they were going to release a new campaign that involved Marcus going down the street to get a soda along with a new map and charge $60 for it...

I agree with that sentiment. Its all about the money and considering Epic Games and MS have steadily enjoyed the 1-2 punch of Gears of War and Halo in ever year of existence for the 360.. You can only expect that to continue.

Besides in 2-3 years.. the surprise will be the Xbox720.. not Gears of War 3.

The 360 is going into its 5th christmas season in just a couple of months. Hard to believe but time has quickly passed by. 2012 will be the year of the new 720.

You must not have been playing GOW2. It's more like lag and host advantage and lag and host advantage. I still play it though because I get host sometimes. The best games are when the host sucks.

Bungie is trying to make Halo better but it's the same game. I know they have their fan base but come on. Look at GOW1 compare to GOW2. It's night and day. Totally different. They actually lost players from 1 but gained alot of new players for 2. I can see why they want it to be on the next console. How much more can the xbox360 take? The technology has been beaten to death. Dont' get me wrong it works really well. Now is in it's 5 years. That's a hell of a long time. If they come out with a new xbox, I'll get it in a heart beat.

GOW2 was horrible. I'm really turned off by the franchise now. There's no way I would buy GOW3 sight unseen like I did GOW2.

x2. It's worth picking up when when I can get it cheap and that's about it. I have no desire to play MP on it and the campaign was meh at best with terrible boss battles.

Is Epic a public company? I thought they were private. Anybody know their ticker symbol?

Epic and Cliffy B did the same crap for Gear 2 even when the game was nearly done, so did Bungie with Halo 3.


saying the same PR lingo. "If we make a game"

when Cliffy B already said at E3 2009 that they are working on Gears 3 which will be ready for October November 2010

And it will no doubt be great, because they can finally Optimize the Unreal 3 engine

Gears 1 was Unreal Engine 3, with hardly any optimizations
Gears 2 was Unreal Engine 3.5, again not fully optimized
Gears 3 will be Unreal engine 3.5 fully Optimized

Like its used in Batman Arkam asylum pushing smooth frames and lots of detail.

Batman AA, Unreal Engine 3 (maybe 3.5) with 2xMSAA on the 360, no MSAA on the PS3 which is why it looks so terrible on the PS3.
