Cliff Bleszinski on the franchise's future.
In between talking about Wii U, PlayStation Vita and Jazz Jackrabbit on IGN Start's Up at Noon, Epic Games designer Cliff Bleszinski touched on the past and future of Gears of War
Source: IGNThe Gears discussion -- which can be seen in its entirety at about the seven-minute mark in today's episode of Up at Noon -- started with Bleszinski dispelling a rumor.
"I didn't always make these dude-bro games at Epic," he said. "The intent was to make [Gears of War] a lot more Band of Brothers and take it a lot more serious."
What happened is that according to Bleszinski, Epic just didn't know how to do that. The developers hadn't built a story-based game in a while and the concept art of a hulked out Marcus Fenix just looked cool.
However, that could change in the future of the franchise.
"If we get around to ever doing more Gears games, I hope we can continue to drift back more towards a Christopher Nolan type dialogue as opposed to a Tim Burton or Joel Schumacher Batman," Bleszinski said. "But that's way down the line."
