Will Gears of War ever come to the PlayStation brand? …probably not.
Despite what Epic Games president Mike Capps said about the possibility of bringing the excellent franchise to the PS3, Epic design directory Cliff "CliffyB" Bleszinski has scoffed at the idea. In fact, according to IndustryGamers , he says he'd like to "bury" the question once and for all.
"I would say in the foreseeable future there’s zero chances of Gears of War being on the PlayStation 3. Can we bury that now? Seriously. It’s like, we have a great deal with Microsoft, they’re a great partner…"
As for what Capps said, Bleszinski dismissed that as saying it "makes for a good news story," but that's it. Microsoft handles all the marketing for each Gears installment, which is a big bonus, and as Sony just got finished saying , third-party exclusives can still exist.
Well, PlayStation fans will somehow have to make do with Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception . …however will we cope, CliffyB?
