Epic On Gears Of War: We Own The Rights To It

It all depends on which company owns the rights. That's one of the reasons for the current Activision/Infinity Ward war.

So when we all wonder if a currently exclusive series might go multiplatform, the first step is to determine the whereabouts of the title rights. Who's got 'em? Well, in the case of the critically acclaimed and immensely popular Gears of War, the developer has a firm grasp on the rights. Epic VP Mark Rein said as much at this year's Game Developers Conference last week, and added that they "can do as they please" with Gears. That being said, he added that they "have a great relationship with Microsoft" and they're "pretty happy with the way things are going." so to assume they will automatically take Gears to the PS3 is erroneous. The possibility is there, but for now, that's it. For the record, though, Epic does work with multiple platforms and other publishers, as evidenced by the People Can Fly shooter (supposedly known as "Bulletstorm"), which is set to be published by EA. Rein referenced a project "with EA" and although it hasn't been announced, they'll provide us with more information "soon." So it's not a matter of Epic being stuck creating games only for the Xbox 360, and Microsoft does not have the rights to the Gears of War franchise.

Just thought that was worth a clarification. The series in question really is fantastic and one of my favorites of the generation. Many might say Uncharted 2: Among Thieves took the third-person shooter crown last year but most PS3 owners would very likely welcome Gears of War 3.

The color palette is fine to me, its part of the 'ambiance,' if you will, of GoW. The games are freaking awesome. I love UnCharted, but I'd gladly welcome GeoW. If it ever came to the PS3, I could sell my xBox once and for all.

Cliff: Well Jack, let's just say that I would like to add one more to that big ass list of exclusives you have!

*shows some game*

Oh and one more thing...everyone take a look at this trailer -

*Gears of War 3 trailer*
*PS3 fanboys erupt*
*Regular gamers - "ok..."*

Jack: We're so happy to have Queers of- I mean Gears of War 3 coming to PS3. *this is a parody of the moron (M$ spokes person) who messed up "Metal Guild Solid."*


By the way - please excuse my imagination. It can go a bit insane at times. =)

I would love gears 3. It would be awesome too if they released 1 and 2 on a single blu ray. That would make my day! I actually said this in an earlier story published on this site about what we thought the gttv game announcement would be. I hoped more than believed, but now that epic said this, then why not. It's funny that sony can't keep any of it's third party exclusives because the companies can't afford to stay exclusive, but Microsoft has all these third party developers that are content as a cucumber to stay exclusive. Might there be a bit of microsoft's endless supply of the almighty dollar being slipped under the table?

I'm not sure how many copies Gears 2 sold, but COD and Halo, and even Mass Effect, seem more important to MS's brand-loyalty and overall sales.

Gears 1 was great for it's time. Stylized visuals, and cool camera effects made it play like a comic book in motion. Gears 2 sp just felt more of the same, with it's whack-a-mole gameplay, and felt as if the series was already stagnating. The online suffered, too, but happened to get worse, due to the lobby, and no dedicated servers.

Personally, as a 360 owner, too, I'd say that Bioware's Mass Effect franchise has more legs to it. But just as I wouldn't care much if we never got it on the ps3, we wouldn't be missing much if we never got Gears for the ps3. They are excellent 3rd party exclusives, but not quite at the level of MGS4, or Sony's first party exclusives.

I say this because I got a 360 just so I could find out what is so great about 360 exclusives. Frankly speaking, while great, they still feel very "3rd-party". Slightly better than multiplatformers, but still in the same ballpark in terms of look and feel.

On a side note, I wouldn't be surprised if Epic took Gears 3 in the same direction as Mass Effect, to reinvigorate the series with fresh game play ideas.

That is not to say that Halo or Cod hasn't stagnated as franchises, but if one looks at their popularity rankings on Live, it's obvious which franchises have retained a greater following.

from what i heard, those Gears fans bought their copies but hated online because it was so broken like an over powered shotgun. i believe theres just too much kids that think this is THE GAME to get. mostly through word of mouth from other kids, same as halo. I know gears is a good game and it deserves its praise. but the ratio of gamers to those kids is heavily in favor of those kids. i know alot who bought the game because their friends told them to get it.

I have a somewhat different view of the halo series. I've seen it played, even tried. I personally dont see the big deal about it. the gameplay experience, at least when i played, is either pretty fun or just a mess. never had a decent game. all those screaming and jumping around just put me off. run and gun just isnt my kind of games as of late. i already gave up on MW2 in favor of MAG and BC2.

There are too many people giving up on cod (or maybe just on this and other sites). While I think BFBC2 is a great game in its own right and MAG is fun just because of the chaos of 256 players, COD is more for the casual gamer. Even casual gamers can be good at games. Just because a game doesn't have vehicles or more than 18 players, doesn't mean its outdated and crap. Yes they should have had proper servers unlike the hosts but the host system works well for me. It is a let down but the whole experience is so great it doesn't put me off. I only really play search and destroy and I'm happy with the 12 player maximum for that mode.

I don't wont more players because I think that would ruin the COD experience. And I don't want vehicles because I feel that would also ruin the COD experience.

I just like the game the way it is and although at first I did prefer the first modern warfare once you've been playing for a while and you become better and used to the (STUPID!) heartbeat sensors you'll enjoy yourself and you wont have so many cheap deaths.

Of course that's my opinion but you can't argue with the amount of players on the MW2 servers.;)

COD's have been given solid reviews here at Psxextreme, and we do have quite a few ardent followers here of it, too. At 60fps, it is the perkiest shooter out there. I just don't dig the whole jar-head motif about the series, so I myself would rather go for Resistance series or KillZone 2 (w/o the dumb voice overs).

A little off topic here but who else has seen the rumours on various sites regarding Insomniac going multi-platform? If it's true, I find it strange because why would you want to develop games for other consoles when they have less power than the one you currently develop for? Either way, I'll never understand why Sony never went to Insomniac with a big wad of cash to buy them.

Insomniac has said before that they want to remain independent. That said, I would be utterly floored if they went multi-platform. Right now they are treated as if they were Sony first party, and I know that grants them a lot of advantages. Altering their platform status would definitely end that kind of close relationship with Sony. Who knows what the future holds for them? Sony recently purchased Media Molecule, so Sony is still buying up developers. Insomniac might still decide to take the money.

TEG3SH,

why does it bug you when your thumbed down? I'm thumbed down often for no apparent reason. Don't let them bother you. :)

@Highlander, i think they should. Sony just keeps adding on to their empire of 1st party developers and obviously have some kind of standard above the rest when it comes to quality. Just look at how great their exclusives usually turn out to be. Then you have MS exclusives like Gears that in my opinion are really no better then your average multiplat made with Unreal.

I think that if there was even a whiff of reality to Insomniac going multi-platform, Sony would simply call the guys in and ask them; "How much? How much for the company, the rights and the back catalog? You guys stay in control, but we own it. How much?"

That's what I'd do anyway...

Will it come to PS3? Eh, chances are iffy. If Epic wanted more revenue, they'd do it. But seeing as they have a lot of cash, who knows. Also not so sure but I remember Epic signed a 3 games exclusive deal with M$ right? If Shadow Complex counts as one of those games, then we MIGHT just see it happen. This is also after rumors flying around saying how Gears 3 tech demo was also running on a PS3. Guess we'll have to wait for E3.

I think everyone just needs to get a copy of Unreal Tournament on PS3 and download all the user created maps and mods available for it.

All I know about gears is that it's a 3rd person shooter with a dude in a huge futuristic outfit.

It looks like 3rd person halo without the helmet.

If it came to ps3, I'd probably get it off amazon or newegg once it was $15. Too many ps3 exclusives to take my money as it is.

3rd person Halo without the helmet sounds like it must be a whole generation ahead of Halo. I mean, how good a developer are you if you have to cover your character's face with a shiny helmet & visor instead of rendering a face? Seems like Bungie would want to show off their prowess by having a beautifully rendered and animated face on their hero. At least Gears of War shows the face of heroism, Epic didn't take the easy way out and rendered a face.

Oh c'mon highlander, that master chiefs helmet has a lot of edges, those can be tricky. ;)

Hey highlander I kind of disagree with you there. I think the helmet and not showing the face kind of adds to the mystique. You know like some wrestlers and some superheros. I could be wrong as to their true reason though...

I think I was burned out on shooters by the end of the PS2 era. If I wanted one, there are like a thousand of them available on the PS3. I guess that tells you how excited I am about this game possibly going multi-platform.

Give it a few more months and the PS3 will have outsold the 360 globally and it will be a hand-me-up...

I played the first Gears and wasnt too impressed by it. 90% grayscale, terrible dialogue, dull story... I just dont get why people love it so much, the whole thing just had me bored to tears.

i wouldn't lmao because the second that happens then it would come back and bite me on the a$$

for instance look at FFXIII, 360 fanboys erupted with "what now?"s and just plain laughter.... the result? ps3 has a superior version of the game, even though we all knew that before hand anyway ;)

This will never happen. Cliff Bleszenski has already stated he doesn't like working on Sony's machine. Also note that Epic's Unreal Engine is in about 60% of the games made; Epic has made so much money from royalties and licensing that there would be no need to waste time and development costs on a multiplatform Gears of War. The Uncharted series is an intelligent, well written shooter that is unparalleled in breadth and scope. Gears and Epic might have ushered in cover based shooters but Uncharted and Naughty Dog perfected them. Gears and Epic should stay on Micro$oft system(s); that's the demograpic they are looking for and I'll reiterate: "Do we really need another shooter?"

Man, it would be of "EPIC" proportions if Gears came over here!

And by not only giving MS a taste of the same rotten karma they have caused all the PS3's fan-base, but also some great "payback" right back up the ole MS wazoo too.

Except that Epic created the Unreal Engine on the PS3 as well, and have a PS3 commitment. Insomniac has zero 360 commitment.

Gears is one of the few great exclusives on the 360, Microsoft will do anything to keep it.

It would be nice for it to come to the PS3 though.

Never played Gears. Gotta say though, it looked like a solid game. As for the lack of colors in the game...maybe that was just the artistic preference? Although I probably would sit better with a more lively canvas in front of me, it probably wouldn't bother me much. So instead of saying I don't want Gears...I'll say that I don't need Gears. I've got my hands full with Uncharted and all these other shooters out here so I don't necessarily have to have it. However, if it came to the PS3 system it would be a welcomed addition IMO. If any 360 exclusive title could come over to the PS3, I would grab Fable. Can't have enough awesome RPG's nowadays. Especially after they recently buried the true Final Fantasy franchise. What a waste!

I love Uncharted 1 & 2, but if we ever see Gears 3 or maybe 4 come to the PS3, I'm not gonna pretend it's nothing. I'd be happy to give it a try.

i would literally scream so loud all the windows on planet earth would shatter if gears 3 was indeed coming to ps3, and actually utilizes it none of this crappy port BS.
gears 2 is my favorite shooter of this gen, it actually forces you to change your tactics, plan ahead and not cover camp unlike another game *cough* killzone 2 *cough* sorry i got a really bad cold.

I'll say this for the idea, let it come over to the ps3 just to bring about an outpouring of rage from the xbots.

Then to further cause insult to injury we can all play something else instead.
