Gears of War 2 Confirmed by Developers

During the Wednesday night Game Developers Choice Awards ceremony in San Francisco, Cliff "Cliffy B" Bleszinski, Games designer for Epic games collected four awards for the gritty Gears of War, including Game of the Year. The next morning Cliffy B was able to make a 9AM media presentation where he was able to confirm that the over 3 Million selling Xbox 360 exclusive would have a follow up by Epic games. There are no details at this time, gamespot have run with the story, which includes coverage of the Cliffy B description of the original concepts behind Gears of War. These include the fact that originally the game was to be more of territorial control style of soot-em-up with vehicles and more complex squad control system including morale. The game was also formerly to be in first person perspective, but once the graphics engine was installed Cliffy B and crew realised; "it would be a crime not to see" the game’s hero. This lead to the Resident Evil style over the shoulder camera position in the game. Microsoft have already hinted at a trilogy of "Gears" games, and given the success of the title, undoubtedly a trilogy will be the minimum - itwire.com Gears of War the video game with stunning graphics and effects, but now there is a second Gears of War. Here’s some more stories around the internet about this topic. Designer Cliff Bleszinski gave a presentation at GDC, during which he reportedly confirmed that Epic does "intend to do a sequel". But it sounds like our old friend Internet Reports was getting a bit ahead of himself, because Epic veepee Mark Rein soon popped up on the game’s official forum to deny it. "Cliff didn’t confirm anything of the sort," he wrote. In other words, you’ll have to wait a bit longer for official confirmation of the inevitable sequel. Epic has previously said that it hopes the game will develop into a lucrative series.
