Art director Chris Perna on "the subtleties of the female form"

With a flashback frame narrative, Left 4 Dead-style adaptive spawning, class-based multiplayer and new tactical trappings, you could be forgiven for calling Gears of War: Judgment a brand new IP. Providing you steer clear of screenshots, anyway.... read more

Gears of War - Epic talks copycats, Berserkers and female le

Do you think you'd ever make a Gears game with a female lead?

That's certainly interesting but I don't know. If you look at what sells, it's tough to justify something like that.

This is why nothing will change, if studios aren't willing to take a risk then of course things wont advance. just ocasionally people should look beyond money, I mean look at the success of the new Tomb Raider - proof that female led games can and do work without taking anything away from the experience

and if someone refuses to buy a game because it has a female lead then they shouldn't have the right to game at all

Really enjoyed that interview. Gears of war judgement looks amazing, and am glad it isn't a complete copy and paste of gears 3.

No one is saying that female leads are bad and I feel like you are overreacting. I would enjoy to have more female leads in videogames, but in a game like gears where story doesn't really matter as much its not really necessary.

I see a female Gear with a helmet on, could this be the famous D Carmine?
