Want Gears of War on Xbox One? "Ask Epic", says Microsoft

Your comments on our articles.

"We hope to bring it to Xbox One in some form."

Gears of War on Xbox One will happen when Epic says it'll happen, Microsoft Studios boss Phil Spencer has told Japanese mag Famitsu, as passed on by Dualshockers - the implication presumably being that there's little chance of a Bungie and Halo-style parting of the ways 'twixt the franchise and its creators.... read more

GOW 3 was such a grind and the story was very unsatisfying. Never played Judgement and judging by the sales Im not the only one. Definitely not a franchise I'm in any hurry to get back to.

I found the 2 comments above me surprising, I thought Gears was almost universally loved by XBox people, but then I thought about it and Gears 3 WAS a bit of a grind. And I'll probably get round to Judgement but I'm in no hurry.

I suppose if Epic are waiting for people to polish their ego a bit by asking for Gears back, they'll be waiting a while.

I guess if Gears was to resurface, it ought to reinvent itslef somewhat. Maybe set itself in the Pendulum Wars and give the player more to do than just shoot stuff.

I love Gears of War, but it shouldn't get another game for a few years. Take time to refresh and put together new ideas. They should really listen to fan feedback. In 3 to 4 years, I'll be ready for another Gears of War game.

Didn't find Gears of War 3 much of a "grind", but the ending boss was annoying.

Gears of War 3 felt like a step back from GOW2 level design wise, and the plot felt like it was rushed. Suddenly Marcus' dad was thrown to the forefront of the story with little leading up to it, heck I barely remember anything about him from Gears of War 2. All things considered though I'm willing to give Gears another chance, but I just don't see where they could go with the story.

Gears 3 was so bad that im done with the franchise, I just don't care anymore. It was horrible and judgement was more like 3.5 and it had alot of stuff cut off the game before release, it's a half baked mess just like Halo 4. Epic fail games, go rip off borderlands.

The storyline went unnecessarily nuts for Gears 3. Dom had no need to die and in killing him of they effectively stopped the series. Judgment was an abomination and should never have had "Gears of War" attached to it.

With the last two games they tried to cater to COD style kids who want super fast movement and quick kills - the opposite of what Gears is. Gears 1 and 2 were awesome (rosey specs on) even with MP issues, which were commonplace in most games at the time anyway.

The next game has to go back to the dark, gritty, survival horror esque style which made it stand apart from mainstream shooters like BF and COD. Oh and bring back Cliffy B.... :lol:

Cliffy B was the one who wanted Gears to become like Call of Duty so I say let him rot.

Got a problem, what did you enjoy the magical journey that is Gears 3 and Judgement or are you just all formal and never throwing insults or get angry when people ruin things you like.

No I don`t throw insults at developers because they do not care no matter what you believe and I don`t rant about it continuously on an internet forum to level up my self esteem.

Yea because that's the only reason im bashing them, so what you just sit there quiet and never complain even when there are problems just because you know they won't listen. That's just stupid, I know you probably mean what's the point if they don't listen but you have to even if they ignore you because doing nothing won't get you anywhere even if you have no success in doing so.

There is a huge difference between voicing your concerns publicly in a rational manner and just throwing petty insults at the developers. Developers *might* listen to people who talk to them rationally, but they're not going to pay any attention to someone who just runs and throws insults around. You're only hurting your cause doing that.

I was referring more to why are you doing it here?It`s not like Epic/Microsoft/343 continuously scout out websites for advise on how to run their company.

Why do it here, do you expect people not to rant on games negative features on gaming websites. It's hard not to because they PO us off all the time, I'll stop ranting here though.
