Microsoft Studios boss Phil Spencer has been chatting about Gears of War on Twitter overnight, reaffirming that the game is still in the early stages of development.
"Still working through plan,” wrote Spencer in response to a fan enquiry. "I can say first original GoW from BT has to reignite franchise and grow it, won't be a quick turn."
He added, ”And I believe we've built the right team to achieve that goal, I just want to give them the time.”
Microsoft recently bought the rights to Gears of War from creators Epic Games, ensuring that the franchise would remain Xbox exclusive. The newly-formed Black Tusk studio is taking charge of development.
