Microsoft buys the rights to the Gears of War franchise

I'm sure you're thrilled

Microsoft has always been synonymous with the Gears of War franchise, but now, it's officially official. It appears as if they've bought the rights in their entirety from Epic Games, allowing them to take over all past and future games, the latter of which will be developed in Vancouver by Black Tusk Studios under the leadership of former Epic Games director of production Rod Fergusson.

Well, this most likely won't impact anyone in a major way, as you're either a Gears fan or you aren't. It also all but confirms a new Gears of War game on the Xbox One.
