Epic Games' Mike Capps, the big boss, broke many a heart when he declared the next Gears of War instalment won't be arriving until the next lot of consoles did.
Luckily he's admitted that was inaccurate to say. Capps has clarified that if a new Gears of War was to arrive in the next "four to five years" it would be on current gen consoles. Panic over.
"If there were a next Gears of War, that will be for the next console generation, whenever that is. If someone knows, please tell me! That’s about four or five years away, I think." said Capps originally, at the Tokyo Game Show. Mass rioting occurred, probably... somewhere.
However he came back and told "If we ship a game in the next few years, it'll be Unreal Engine 3." If they ship a game on next-gen consoles "it will likely be Unreal Engine 4," he said. UE3 is now while UE4 is Epic's future investment.that:
There you have it, another Gears of War is almost assuredly coming to Xbox 360 at some point but it will likely take a while to get here. Maybe it'll have some fun with Natal?
Gears of War 3 for "next console generation," actually that's wrong
