Gears multiplayer changes could make game even more awesomer than it is now!

hunters.jpg If there's one single flaw in Gears of War for the Xbox 360, it is that the multiplayer matchmaking scrapes the bottom of the evolutionary ladder. By not offering up ranked team play, it goes against the grain of successful multiplayer games we've come to know and covet. Mark Rein shines his bright light on the possibility of great change:
When we spoke with Epic Games' Cliffy B last week regarding ranked team play for Gears of War, he informed us players wouldn't be able to create a squad and hop from game-to-game as in Bungie's Halo 2 because "required by Microsoft to be this way." Don't start storming the gates just yet, though; the company's Vice President Mark Rein suggests they may offer additional functionality in the future -- he didn't provide any specifics, of course. While playing online with GamerAndy, Rein both confirmed Microsoft pushed them into designing multiplayer the way it is due to potential cheaters, but specified they might add new features to multiplayer in the future.
Make it happen Epic. We know you can do it, and we know you want to. Now give us what we want so we can continue loving you even harder than we are now.
