The Gears of War series is of course second only to Halo in the affections of the majority of Xbox gamers. It essentially launched a sub-genre of cover based third person shooting games, but according to Epic Games it may not stay within that genre forever.
When the executive producer of the series Rod Fergusson spoke to OXM, he told them “never say never” when asked if the Locust-busting action title could ever make the leap to first person shooter territory.
“It’s all about what’s interesting in the industry at the time and where fans want us to take it” said Fergusson. “We don’t want to say never but it’s not on the top of my mind either. We look at what makes sense and move in that direction.”
The next Gears of War game is of course still a third person shooter, however it is being developed by People Can Fly studios. Gears of War: Judgement will be a prequel and released next year. Would you like to see a Gears of War FPS, maybe for the launch of the next Xbox console? Or would you rather see the series sticking to its roots? Let us know below.
