Secret Gears Of War Game Cancelled

Look at all dat juice.

Not a fan of inappropriately enforced control methods being shoehorned into your AAA console exclusive franchises?

Then rejoice, as Gamespot is reporting that Gears of War: Exile has been cancelled.

The game, first picked up last January via a domain name registration, was believed to be an on-rails, Kinect controlled shooter in the Gears universe.

I love Gears of War, I do, but this really does sound that bad.

“Let’s just bury the hatchet now,” said Epic’s Cliff Bleszinski. “Gears of War: Exile was an unannounced game that I can’t give any details about that has since been cancelled.”

    Never understood the “it sounds rubbish, so obviously will be.” Didn’t we learn from Burnout Crash?

    Yeah, it wouldn’t have worked due to the nature of the Gears games. Plus, i think a large majority of the fans don’t like Kinect thus resulting in this being doomed if it wasn’t cancelled.

    But i wonder if they will use some elements from this for the next GOW? For example, plot, new enemies and weapons etc..

    I am happy that Epic admitted that they thought it wasn’t worth doing as it should avoid a split in the fanbase and splits in fanbases can become ugly. That and i think they would either dumb it down to get a wider audience.

    Gears and Kinect automatically screams fail in my ears. I was curious sure but I’d rather they do more awesome games. Stick to what you’re good at
