Bleszinski: More Gears Of War Is Top Priority

Epic Games' Cliff Bleszinski has stated that more Gears titles are priority number one once Gears of War 3 is released.

Talking with RipTen Bleszinski stated;
“I mean, we’re business people."

“Gears 1 and 2 sold about 6 million copies, so if this game comes out and, God willing, sells 8 or 10 million it would be completely dumb to not do another one, right? It’s just business 101.

“So, I mean, the key is figuring out what’s appropriate. What makes sense for this connected world that we’re moving into? So, that remains to be seen. That’s the million dollar question.”
Bleszinski wouldn't go into specifics when asked what could go into another Gears title.

He then spoke about the changes Gears 3 will have over its predecessor;
“There was an image that went around on the internet a while back that showed a FPS map design from 1993 of DOOM E1M1. It showed this really cool kind of porous environment that you could kind of explore around a bit, and then it showed 2010 and it was like ‘line, cut scene, line cut scene, line, cutscene, line, cutscene.’

“And I feel like, you know, not to slag our old work, because we’re still proud of it, but there were sections of Gears 2 were a little more of the latter image and less of the prior image.”
Gears of War 3 is out September 20 exclusively for the Xbox 360.
