Epic Says Gears Series is “in Great Hands”


After the megaton announcement by Microsoft that they now own the rights to the Gears of War franchise from Epic Games, a lot of fans are now worried about the direction of the series and how well Black Tusk Studios will carry on the legacy.



Epic has always had a pretty strong rapport with their fans, and has always held their fans as equally important as their IPs. So it’s understandable that there’s a lot of apprehension about how Black Tusk Studios will handle the franchise, and more importantly, how active they will be in listening to, communicating with, and engaging with Gears fans.

Will Kinsler, Community Manager at Epic Games, is doing his best to assure Gears fans that the franchise is in the right hands with Black Tusk Studios and MS.


Here’s to hoping. We’ll find out soon enough when the announcement and details for the new game in the series come out.
