Bleszinski: Any New Gears Game Would Have to “Switch It Up”
Cliff Bleszinski expressed Saturday night at the VGAs the desire to continue making Gears games, but he said they wouldn’t be able to keep doing the same old thing if they did.
In the future, who knows? We would certainly love to make more experiences in the Gears universe.
I want to make sure we switch it up sufficiently so it still feels like Gears DNA, but it feels fresh and new.
He also said they’re going to keep the franchise with Microsoft until they find a better deal elsewhere, but that they probably aren’t going to find a better deal, and so there it will stay. And that’s fine.
So I would like to see a new Gears game, one in which Marcus has to wrestle with committing genocide against an entire race of people who are probably related to humans in some way in Gears 3. They were sentient beings, for Christ’s sake! Maybe my game idea wouldn’t be so terribly action packed, but it could make for a nice little RPG. “Marcus roams across the countryside looking for redemption.” Yeah.
