Black Tusk Producer Rod Fergusson Talks About Future Of The Franchise

A lot of people thought the “Gears of War” franchise was dead after a fairly poor showing in its third installment. After being sold to Black Tusk Studios by Microsoft the newest installment is in the works.”Gears of War 4″ is in the early stages of development after recently being sold to Microsoft’s Black Tusk Studios.

The most recent news is a screen capture from Gamescon private showing with a November 7th date on the bottom, which may mean that there will be a big announcement or reveal about the game tommorrow, so make sure to check back in and find out. Check out the picture and sound off in the comments if you think they are going to announce something.

Since the IP changed hands recently a lot of fans have been wondering what to expect from the franchise in this latest installment.

Black Tusk producer Rod Fergusson told Polygon in a recent interview, “There are some things that even though people try to copy us, we don’t think they’ve nailed. I think the cover system, there’s a feel to a Gears of War game that I’ve yet to find in another game where it feels the same. Whether it’s the fluidity, the weight, the heaviness to the characters, the way that it feels like to be in cover, the roadie run character, those sorts of things.”

A big problem was that the most recent installment of the game attempted to change the basic mechanics, and fans generally did not like it.

“With Black Tusk, we have to show that we have a legitimate claim to this IP and be able to show we know how to do it right before we do it differently,”Fergusson told Polygon in an interview. “So I think there’s a combination. It’s about finding the right things to change. And there are some things that even though people try to copy us, we don’t think they’ve nailed. I think the cover system, there’s a feel to a Gears of War game that I’ve yet to find in another game where it feels the same. Whether it’s the fluidity, the weight, the heaviness to the characters, the way that it feels like to be in cover, the roadie run character, those sorts of things.

“So there’s things that I think are uniquely Gears that you just have to double down on, and then there’s things we go, ‘Hey, is there a way to be more contemporary with other mechanics that have maybe found their way into the genre that you have to take notice of?’

“Gears of War 4” is still in the infancy phase, and the release date would be late 2015 at the absolute earliest. However there were reports that it was coming out earlier, which turned out to be the result of a hack.

According to IGN Spencer and Fergusson have also discussed “getting back to something,” he continued. “I think [about] the story and the setting and what they’re going through as a band. Gears of War, the name really meant something to what that game was about. We need to get back to that.” He also reiterated that the next Gears of War is not a reboot.

Spencer is aware that “Judgment didn’t hit everybody’s needs and desires,” but said “I think we can continue, but we also have a new team. Rod’s there to really help with the continuity. We can really invest in this thing for the next decade, which is how I want to think about it.”
