Microsoft Acquires Exclusive Rights To Gears of War

Posted on Monday, January 27 @ 06:12:37 Eastern by Alex_Osborn


Microsoft has officially acquired the exclusive rights to the Gears of War franchise, including all previously released games and titles to come.

Developer Black Tusk Studios is the team that will be tasked with the development of new entries in the series from here on out. The franchise will be overseen by former Epic Games executive producer Rod Fergusson, who will "play a key studio leadership role at Black Tusk on the development of the franchise going forward."

Speaking to Polygon, Fergusson said:

I'm extremely excited to be joining Black Tusk Studios to oversee development on the Gears of War franchise. I've been privileged to work on a lot of great games with a lot of great teams, but Gears has had the most impact on me professionally and personally, so this really feels like a homecoming. I can't wait to share more with you all soon.

Do you think this was a smart move by Microsoft? Does the Gears of War franchise still have plenty of life left in it? I can only imagine how gorgeous a new entry in the series will look on Xbox One.
