Phil Spencer responded by saying that they are still working on the release plans for “Gears of War.” He went on to add that the new title has to “reignite franchise and grow it,” hinting that the development won’t be a “quick turn” as a result.

The “Gears of War” franchise was created by Epic Games. The studio went on to develop the first three games of the series along with working collaboratively with People Can Fly with “Gear of War: Judgment.”

Microsoft Studios announced last month that they have purchased the rights of the franchise from Epic Games. The next title will be developed by Black Tusk Studios, a new first-party development team that was recently formed to work on blockbuster titles.

The development for upcoming “Gears of War” title only started several weeks ago. As a result, the next game in the series may be several years off from release.
