Start getting comfortable with Gears

The always outspoken Mark Rein, Epic’s vice president, has went ahead and put one more post-it note on the board of awesomeness: Gears of War won’t stop with just a trilogy. As the legendary Stimpy said, “Joy!”

“Gears is a trilogy? If we can keep making quality games that fans obviously then why would we have to stop at three. I don’t see the Metal Gear Solid, Mario, Grand Theft Auto or Final Fantasy series (among others) stopping at three and they’re still delivering compelling entertainment content that’s easily worth the money (see Unreal Tournament as well).”

Great news for those of us who love the f*ck out of Gears of War. It’s so nice to see a new franchise ready to blossom into a full-fledged epic — pun intended.
