we want new gears content!!!!
"Gears is a trilogy? Why would we have to stop at three?" says Epic's Mark Rein
Last week the first hint landed that our dreams of more Gears goodness might become a reality, as Microsoft's Corporate VP of Global Marketing Jeff Bell referred to Epic's series as the "Gears of War trilogy", suggesting at least two more entries for the (ahem) epic series.
After the expected internet commotion caused by Bell's comment, Epic decided to respond to the commotion with a post on its forum, adding even more fuel to the fire by asking why - after the shooter has managed to fly off the shelves and sell over a million copies - they'd leave the series at just three.
"Gears is a trilogy? If we can keep making quality games that fans obviously then why would we have to stop at three," said Epic VP Mark Rein.
"I don't see the Metal Gear Solid, Mario, Grand Theft Auto or Final Fantasy series (among others) stopping at three and they're still delivering compelling entertainment content that's easily worth the money (see Unreal Tournament as well). There's definitely, as many of you have pointed out, a lot more to learn about what's really happening on the plant Sera and in the lives of the members of Delta Squad."
For the moment Epic is concentrating on supporting the first Gears with download content and enhancements:
"In the mean time," added Rein, "we're working hard to support Gears of War (the first one) and come up with some great enhancements you'll hopefully see before too long. We're not ready to provide any details yet but I assure you we're on the job."
See, thats what should happen with most major games, is not stop on the 3rd game simply because they think it'd be shabby to make a 4th one. There is a limit, but no, trilogies shouldn't be a game standard.
