The lights are on
Epic Games' Gears Of War is one of the Microsoft-exclusive series still capable of making PlayStation owners green with envy. But could that change in the future? In a recent interview, Epic's President Mike Capps stated just how much the company would like to bring the franchise to Sony's loyal gamers.
Capps recently explained his wish to go multiplatform to IndustryGamers. "Do we wish we could take all those Killzone and Resistance fans on PS3, and get them to say 'Gears is awesome'? Yeah, sure, I'd love to ship the Gears trilogy on PlayStation. That would be fun. I want to be there; I want to be everywhere." Capps also stated unequivocally that the Gears IP belongs to Epic, and that it's their call which platform they release on, but that Microsoft has kept them happy in the past. "Time and time again, when it came down to figure out what we do next with Gears, we sat down with Microsoft and they've given us really good, compelling reasons to work with them again."
It sounds like Epic is pretty happy with Microsoft right now, but the thought of a Gears of War trilogy pack must be might enticing for PS3 gamers and Epic alike.
