Now that Gears of War 3 is out and reviewed, it's time to talk about future Gears games. Because, why not? Those games make cashola! And Gears designer Cliff Bleszinski isn't sick of them. Yet.

Bleszinski told Develop that "there's the long history of this war, tons of different stories to tell and thematically if you figure what makes a Gears game in the future, there's a lot of different directions we could go in."


"I'm not burnt out on it anywhere as some might assume or think," the game designer added.

Continuing, the Gears designer pointed to Halo and Call of Duty sales, and that Gears hasn't yet reached those numbers. Gears of War 3 wasn't able to topple the 10-month-old Call of Duty: Black Ops from the top spot on Xbox Live.

"I'm hoping Gears of War 3 brings us closer to that point," said Bleszinski. "People forgot also that we're only the third game of the series."


Gears of War 3 was the third game in a trilogy.

"There's been a couple more Halo's and a few more Call of Duty's so who knows, maybe we'll be able to build upon that success."


Once upon a time, Square Enix must have thought the exact same thing about Final Fantasy.
