Epic Games design director Cliff Bleszinski has told Ripten there’s a good chance the Gears of War series will continue beyond the third game.
Speaking in response to a question on the subject, Bleszinski told the site, “it would be completely dumb not to do another one.
“I mean, we’re business people. Gears 1 and 2 sold about six million copies, so if this game comes out and, God willing, sells eight or ten million, it would be completely dumb to not do another one. It’s just business 101.
“The key is figuring out what’s appropriate – what makes sense for this connected world that we’re moving into? That remains to be seen. That’s the million dollar question.”
Microsoft would also love to see Gears continue, it is one of the companies highest selling exclusives after all, although whether there is any deal in place for the game to stay exclusive after three games remains to be seen.
Gears of War 3 releases on September 20, exclusively on Xbox 360. You can pre-order a copy of the game here, for £38.86, with a limited edition also available, for £57.85.
You can pre-order the SteelBook version here. Not many other retailers have this one up yet so make sure you grab it while you can.
