When a time comes in a video games’ life where it reaches a third installment, many wonder if it is the last game to the series or will it just continue down the line with the same character and plot elements. Luckily, we won’t have to wait until Gears of War 3‘s release to find out. Developer Epic Games has enlightened CVG about the outcome of the third Gears title. In short, the Gears‘ universe will stay but Marcus’ story will come to a satisfying end. Although Epic Games producer, Rod Fergusson, did not reveal unto CVG if there will be definitively more Gears of War games or if the overall series will end. But what if one were to read between the lines on Mr. Fergusson’s statements? Check them after the break.
“The third Xbox 360 exclusive is going to answer all of the questions, bring the story to a closure and go out with a huge bang. We’re not blowing up the world so Sera and the Gears universe will live on, but for us we didn’t want to betray our customers and community by having a cliff-hanger ending where you’re like ‘argh I just got duped, now I’ve gotta wait until the next game.’ We wanted to have closure, we wanted people to have some satisfaction that they were along for this ride and they lived through a story. We’re not going to reveal everything because we want some mystique left in our universe, but this is the Marcus Fenix story and people should feel satisfied after playing through that.”
Be sure to pick up Gears of War 3 for the 360 on September 20th.
