Cliff Bleszinski On Gears of War 4 Writing: We Will Be “Pleased” With It, “Rooting” For The Coalition

Gears of War creator Cliff Bleszinski has commented on the upcoming sequel to Gears of War 3 by the newly established The Coalition studio. This studio is being headed by Rod Fergusson, who is a former Gears of War series veteran, having worked on the series with Cliff Bleszinski.

While Gears of War is now owned by Microsoft, the game was formerly developed by Epic Games, who are famous for their proprietary Unreal Engine. Cliff Bleszinski has also departed from Epic Games and left Gear of War series behind to form his own studio called Boss Key Studios. He is currently working on his brand new game “Lawbreakers”, which is being developed on Unreal Engine 4.


Recently, Cliff Bleszinski had a chance to talk with one of his friend who is currently working on Gears of War 4 as a writer. According to Cliff Bleszinski, the next game will please everyone, which might be encouraging to hear considering it is coming from the creator of the series.

He also gave shoutout to his former colleague Rod Fergusson saying that he is rooting for the development studio and him to deliver on the next Gears of War.

Gears of War 4 was showcased at the E3 2015 conference of Microsoft. It will get a closed beta in Spring 2016 for those who have bought the Ultimate Edition of the original Gears of War on the Xbox One. The game is set to release in Fall 2016 exclusively for the Xbox One.

    Gears 4 seems to be in the vein of The Force Awakens in that now it’s the young generation taking the mantel from the old guys. It’ll be interesting to see if any characters from past Gears games appear and look older.

    Well hopefully the story is better than the last two games. Sorry but games like Halo, Gears, COD are not know for their story no matter how much they keep telling you its better the next year. I’m calling Bunk!

    MP is more important to games like Gears for them to be putting in the money to make a great story for the single player. Way to hype of the gamers Cliff but your story was good for the original Gears but it was not great.
