Epic Responds to 10-Year Gears of War Plan

Following Gears of War 2 writer Josh Ortega's recent revelation that Epic has a "a ten-year plan" for the action-centric franchise, the developer has denied such plans.

"We appreciate the enthusiasm Josh has for our franchise but we don't have a ten-year plan," Epic VP Mark Rein informed VG247. "We always have ideas of where we'd like it to go but it's determined on a game-by-game basis and ultimately by fan support."

"In this industry you can't plan games very far in advance," he added.

Rein explained that Epic is focused on supporting Gears of War 2, which hit Xbox 360 last fall, noting that the team is currently working on a title update for the game, and will then start planning the next update after it completes the current one.
