The tweets were very vague, not giving us any real hints as to what will be announced but theories were flying, as fans took to major gaming forums hoping for a Perfect Dark or Crackdown 3.
The announcement has been made and it seems Microsoft have purchased the Gears of War franchise from EPIC Studios. Xbox Wire has a brief interview with Phil Spencer, Head of Microsoft Studios, Hanno Lemke, General Manager of Black Tusk Studios at Microsoft Studios, and Rod Fergusson about the news that has just landed.
Black Tusk, which is compiled of world class developers has been given reigns to continue the franchise. This means that any future titles in the franchise will be handled by Black Tusk Studios and it guarantees that the franchise will remain exclusive to Xbox.
Microsoft feel that by acquiring the franchise they can continue to offer the fans more of their favourite games and entertainment from the “Gears of War” universe. The franchise has grossed over $1B (US) dollars worldwide, so it seems like a smart move for Microsoft to keep this franchise close to them.
Following the announcement, Epic Games shared the following statement
“Epic Games has reached an agreement to sell the ‘Gears of War’ intellectual property rights to Microsoft. We’re very proud of the franchise we built in close partnership with Microsoft over the past decade and are happy that this agreement enables Microsoft to forge ahead with the ‘Gears’ universe on their industry-leading platforms as Epic concentrates its efforts on new projects,” said Epic founder and CEO Tim Sweeney. “Epic remains totally dedicated to supporting Xbox One and is licensing the Unreal Engine 4 technology to Microsoft in support of their future projects.”
