Epic Games Gearing Up For Gears Of War: Exile?

By Spencer . January 18, 2011 . 11:29am


It appears Microsoft and Epic Games have three Gears of War projects in the pipeline.


There’s the Gears of War Triple Pack a budget bundle of Gears of War 1, 2, the "Road to Ruin" campaign, and bonus multiplayer maps coming to Xbox 360 on February 15.


Gears of War 3, which is slated for release on Xbox 360 this fall.


And apparently Gears of War: Exile. Epic Games filed a trademark for Gears of War: Exile plus registered the logo pictured above. Perhaps, this is the Gears of War announcement that was supposed to be at Spike TV’s VGA award show?

    Awesome. Maybe a prequel? I’ve read all the Gears novels, too, and I’m really enjoying the whole Gears universe and there’s still so much they could do, even outside of the Locust

    • SolidusSnake

      Yeah I could see that…. maybe a game set during the Pendulum Wars where you’re fighting other humans.

  • Apollokids

    I was a beast at this game when it came out. Yeah i had a 360- before it ROD. I loved talking smack to little kids who had ever more garbage to say about me. And the sniper game was great. I have fond memories of the first gears of war.

  • Kinect-enabled survival-horror spin-off

  • Hraesvelgr

    Yeah, there’s no way they’re going to let a cash cow like Gears of War end with the upcoming third game. There’s just too much money in it.

    • Apollokids

      Nathan Drake approves.

    • SolidusSnake

      The series was supposed to be a trilogy. As much as I like Gears, I was hoping they’d let the series die gracefully to make room for new IPs. Ah, well.

      • Aoshi00

        I can’t wait for the 3rd game as well and don’t mind the delay, but I wish trilogy would stay as trilogy (I thought the Shrek, Pirates, and Twilight movies were all supposed to be trilogies..). I enjoyed the Gears universe but didn’t read the two novels yet..

        • Aara_Malik_Davoodi

          Shrek was actually originally planned to be 5 movies. Twilight was always 4 books so they’re not going to only make 3 movies. And Pirates…well, that was supposed to be a trilogy, but the fourth movie looks great.

          The novels are great. There’s actually 3 of them with a fourth planned to come out in march. I’ve read all the ones released so far. Enjoyed them so much

          • Aoshi00

            I liked the 4th Shrek too, can’t get enough of these CG animated films from Pixar and Dreamworks (Disney’s Tangled was amazing).. My sis told me there’s one more Twilight book, but Eclipse seemed like a good place to end everything w/o going into Bella being turned (not that I like seeing the emo Edward or Jacob lol, saw the first one might as well see the rest..) and no Kiera Knightley! Guess the ladies just want to see more Depp.. My point was I don’t want any more unnecessary sequels/baggage if the original planned stuff were good enough, but you can’t go against milking what’s successful..

            I’ll get the novels some day, I just browsed thru the Amazon reviews before and the reaction was mixed so I hesitated.. it would be cool if we could control Anya in Gears 3’s campaign mode.. I liked the older Lancer though..

        • Dude, what?! You mistakenly listed Twilight Saga! Since each one continues to get more phenomenal than the previous, I would be glad if they had extended it to more than 4 movies. I cant get enough of them, and Eclipse was, hands down, best movie of 2010, and best movie thus far, simply epic!

          • Aoshi00

            I liked the first one, the Washington forest scenery was nice. The 2nd one Pattinson was in Romeo sparkling suicidal mode and Fanning was giving the evil stare, the 3rd one was surprisingly enjoyable (didn’t even realize they switched in Bryce Howard..), I’m guessing you’re a Jacob fan :)? Best movie of 2010, come on man it had to be Scott Pilgrim vs the World :)! I still need to get the Blu-ray..

          • Edward fan all the way!!! (Jacob could try to wear a shirt or something, Im just saiyan) (and Fanning was awesome in New Moon and Eclipse, they made her so epic!)

          • Aoshi00

            I’m surprised you prefer Edward since you usually like the younger guys more and Vaan only wears a vest w/ no shirt lol (yea, a bit annoying the wolves are always shirtless like their sculpted bodies are too good not to be exposed..). One reason I watch Twilight is Bella, she was great in Adventureland. I liked Pattinson more in the Goblet of Fire..

          • Aara_Malik_Davoodi

            It’s actually going to be 5 movies. They’re splitting the fourth book into 2 movies a la Harry Potter 7

          • malek86

            What, is that the new trend?

            I really doubt they couldn’t make it in a single movie, if they wanted to.

  • Yukito

    Well, since Microsoft called a Kinect heavy year, I suppose this probably confirms a Kinect Gears regardless.

  • Truly this sounds mighty epic indeed!

  • Oh wow…another Gore shooter for the 360…Awesome
    Say no to RPG Exclusives! -.-

    If this is the Kinect Gears of War everyone under 10 wishes for…
    Does it come with a pack of steroids so you can pump your muscles up and look like your idol Marcus -no brain- Fenix?

    • SolidusSnake

      aww, somebody’s sad… need a hug?

  • Fonic

    Might have to finally get into this series when the triple pack comes out. Not a huge shooter fan but I don’t mind them. Uncharted has turned out to be one of my favorite new series this gen.

    • SolidusSnake

      Yeah, Gears is a blast, it’s not the most original game ever, but the fights are fun, the cover system works great, and chainsawing some alien bug in half is always a hoot. Fight through the pain!

  • OMG awesome I love this series……

  • Always a big fan of the series and i truly can’t wait for Gears Of War 3 this year.

  • Eleo

    I didn’t believe this but I searched “exile” on http://tess2.uspto.gov/ and sure enough it was at the top of the results. Wonder what it is?

  • Happy Gamer

    im not too into all the shooters such as halo, cod etc. at all but GoW is the reason i even got a 360 as my first current gen system. something about this game is extremely attractive to me not to mention fun game mechanics.

    Art style id have to say is very unique compared to alot of other shooters out there imo.
