Many will know that Gears of War was a revolutionary title in the Xbox 360 era, being one of the most popular Xboxba IPs today thanks to its brutal gameplay and incredible characters. However, the roots of what Gears of War once was seem to have been forgotten in the last two installments according to fans, as its first installments offered a hint of what we consider “horror”. For his part, like many fans, Phil Spencer wanted Gears of War to feature horror elements in its later installmentssays the creator of the franchise.
According to the statements of Cliff Bleszinski, creator of the Gears of War IP, when Xbox acquired the full rights to this intellectual property Phil Spencer Said He Wanted To Go Back To Horror Stuff. This is taken from the latest XboxEra podcast where Bleszinski talks about Gears of War and many other things in the industry. Apparently, this conversation between the head of Xbox and the creator of GoW took place in 2014, long before the release of Gears of War 4 and Gears 5and is currently wondering what happened so that these two games did not touch the horror genre.
The creator of the saga reveals that Phil Spencer initially wanted Gears of War to present horror elements in his latest installments
While it is unknown why the last two games in the series did not offer many horror elements, it is possible that this is because the concept of these titles has already been raised before it came to light, and that the team at Development and management did not want to make big changes. But putting that aside, perhaps the next games in this saga will begin to return to that essence of terror that the first trilogy offered in its time.
On the other hand, there has been much talk about the launch of a collection equivalent to the Master Chief Collection for Halo, but of the Gears saga with many of the remastered titles. Also, this rumor is accompanied by the supposed development of Gears 6, a game that could return to the roots of what this saga was in its day.
