New Gears of War title to be announced by Epic at E3

by William Schwartz


Outed by Game Informer,  Epic Games will be unveiling the next iteration of the Gears of War franchise at Microsoft’s Press Conference prior to E3 2012.  It’ll be the cover story for next month’s magazine, so there are definitely plenty of details inbound about the upcoming title.

Details are scant right now, but expect much more information about the next game throughout E3.  The mysterious image doesn’t do much by of telling us who or where this iteration of the game will take us, so we’ll have to wait patiently.

A while ago, Epic had been rumored to have Gears of War: Exile in development for the Xbox 360.  A Kinect-centric Gears of War experience, a trademark for Gears of War: Exile was filed way back in January ’11.  Later in February, Kotaku revealed the game as an “on-rails” Gears of War game for the Kinect.

Is this the project that has finally come to fruition?  We’ll find out soon enough.
