Gears of War has been a gold mine for Microsoft, with a series of games followed by a range of merchandise, including a board game. Initially owned by Epic Games, the creators of the Unreal engine, Microsoft purchased Gears of War from them earlier this year. Recently it has been rumoured that Microsoft are looking to relaunch the franchise with a series of HD remastered games, although they have been very careful not to release the details and to silence those who are responsible for leaking them.
This silence has now been broken. Gears Of War: Ultimate edition will bring not only the original game to the Xbox One but also visual upgrades and gameplay features from their latest Gears of Wars games. The Ultimate edition will also feature five campaign chapters that were never released on the Xbox.
In a slightly more shocking twist Gears of War 4 was also announced, with an initial date set somewhere in 2016. Find below the E3 gameplay demo shown for Gears of War 4.
With so many Gears of War games coming out its looking more and more like a continuation of the series is coming. Something I am more than happy to look forward to.
