Microsoft’s Phil Spencer Hopes to Bring Gears of War to Xbox One, but it Depends on Epic Games

Many have been wondering if a Gears of War game will appear on Xbox One, and Microsoft Studios Honcho Phil Spencer made an interesting statement about it today as part of an interview on

Gears of War is developed by Epic Games, and they’ve been our partners for a long time on Xbox 360. You should ask Epic Games about what they want to do. We haven’t announced anything yet about Gears of War, but we hope to bring it to Xbox One in some form. However, there’s nothing more I can tell you at this time.

The statement sounds quite cryptic. Does he know something we don’t? Well, of course he does, but are there plans specific to Gears of War already in place? We’ll have to wait and see about that. But if Phil Spencer hopes to see Gears of War on the Xbox One, there’s no reason for us not to.

        You don’t know anything. Devil May cry was made famous by it’s fans on Playstation, that went to Xbox. Mass Effect was a PC/360 game and that came to PS3.

        Chances are the next gears game will be on PS4, though personally I don’t care all that much either way.

      The same day the 360 get’s MGS4.

    Gears 4 on PlayStation 4 would be a good look

    • Kevin

      Has always looked good on Xbox brand does not need the box from the east for anything. You guys can continue to play your Indiana / tomb raider rip off.

        You do realize that Epic has had a few people go on record saying they wouldn’t mind being multiplatform, and you do realize that Metal Gear Solid and Final Fantasy were made popular by multiple generations of PlayStations but eventually came to the Xbox?

        Exclusivity doesn’t last forever for third party publishers.

  • PhantomVash808

    Personally don’t care for this franchise but it wouldn’t surprise me if the next Gears is on XB1,PS4, and PC.

    • foureyes oni

    I’ve always thought Gears should just put out a PURE multiplayer game with NO singleplayer. I’m tired of games butchering their lore because they feel entitled to make another game. Just released it F2P (they already charge for skins and camo) and bring us the awesome MP. If not free, release it discounted and bring back some of the awesome maps that make the game fun. They finished the trilogy and butchered Judgment…. please go back to what we GEARS FANS WANT.
