Aside from Epic’s recent news about its upcoming third update for Gears of War 2, all is relatively quiet in the Gears of Wars universe – but an admission from one of the game’s key writers suggests that Epic and Microsoft have plenty of Gears surprises on the way.
IGN reports that Gears of War 2 writer Joshua Ortega told attendees at the recent New York Comic-Con event that: You will not be disappointed in the next ten years. It’s a ten-year plan. Gears is long-term. The lancer is the new lightsaber.”
He also hinted that the immediate future could bring some new single player DLC to Microsoft’s title, though sadly no news of Gears of War 3 was mentioned.
Along with Gears of War 2, Ortega’s CV includes work on comic hits such as Spider-Man, Star wars Tales and The Necromancer, as well as the successful novel ((FREQUENCIES)).
