The new Gears of War game for the Xbox One, has many players salivating for more info as the days lead to E3. It is understandable that many people are speculating about the new Gears, but will some of it actually be true?

Rod Fergusson the big wig at  Black Tusk Studios stated in an interview with OXM UK that “This isn’t a great way of phrasing it but I always talk about shipping a sequel to customers as ‘managing betrayal’. They want something new but they don’t want something so new that it doesn’t feel like what they want. But if you put out something that’s very familiar and is the same as the game they just had, then it’s like ‘I’ve already had this. This isn’t new enough.'”

He further added, “You actually have to betray them enough to give them something new and surprising but not so much that they disconnect, and I think that is a big thing that we have to focus on. It’s how we can innovate and bring something new to the franchise while at the same time really proving that we understand Gears – that this is the franchise that you know and love.

“So I’ve already given multiple speeches to the team like ‘here are the core tenets of Gears, here are the things that won’t be changing, and here are opportunities for us to innovate that we think we can knock out of the park.'”

The main question on everyone’s mind is that, will the new Gears of War knock it out of the park, or will it be a foul ball? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.

      Fittingly, not only does the Xbox One have better AAA exclusives, they also have better indie games too: Super Time Force and Below, in particular.

      It’s the truth

      They both have good exclusive games.

    • coip

      One has more than the other. Xbox One, that is.

      First you guys bash the indies on PS4 and then you boast about 2 xbone indies one of which is only timed exclusive… how about you just enjoy your games and stop going like ‘ours better than theirs’ etc.. its all a matter of preference

      No one ever bashed indie games. They bashed the fact that the PS4 had very few AAA exclusives and Sony tried to compensate for it by pushing mostly mediocre indie games, whereas Xbox One had a ton of exclusive AAA games. Indies are great, but they’re not a reason to buy a next-generation console. That was everyone’s point. On top of that, with Super Time Force and Below, Xbox One has not only the better AAA exclusives but also the better indie exclusives too.

      PS4 has the superior version of all console AAA multiplats, more dev support including indies, a large number of first party studios, free to play games and MMOs like FFXIV and Warframe, and unannounced 1st party games (Gran Turismo, God of War, Media Molecule, Quantic Dream, etc.) Titanfall 2 and future 3rd party games will almost certainly be on PS4.

      PS4 games not on Xbox One: Killzone, inFamous Second Son, Dynasty Warriors 8, Final Fantasy XIV, Warframe, DC Universe, Yakuza Isshin and other Japanese games, MLB 14 The Show, Bound by Flame, Injustice Gods Among Us, Knack, Natural Doctrine, Transistor, Planetside 2, Dragon Ball Z, MotoGP, Deep Down, Driveclub, The Last of Us, The Witness, The Order, and a ton of indies including Resogun and Transistor

      Recently Sony has filed trademarks or had leaks for no less than 6 games. Entwined, Kill Strain, Blood Borne, Dark Chronicles, Project Beast and Guns Up. Expect a big E3 reveal of new games.

      Don’t worry, PS4 will keep selling like hotcakes on superior multiplats alone. Marketing deals and bundles with Watch Dogs and Destiny (the two biggest AAA multiplats of the year) will help.

      The only game on ps4 that even remotely interests me is Shadow of the Beast, because it brings back happy memories from my childhood. other than that Microsoft/PC should release Gears of War on PC as well as Xbox one
