Calling Gears of War: Judgment a glorified expansion pack might be a little harsh. But with Cliff Bleszinski and Rod Fergusson leaving Epic Games and People Can Fly’s founder Adrian Chmielarz also leaving in the middle of its development, Judgment might be in some trouble. Judgment is currently the Xbox 360′s only exclusive set for release next year and most likely Microsoft’s last big game before their next-gen system.
While it’s still too soon to pass judgment on the upcoming Gears, seeing as how it hasn’t even been released yet, with only three months until its March 19, 2013, release date, I have to say that I’m just not as excited for the fourth installment in the Gears series as I am for other titles slated for release next year. Still, that’s not to say Judgment doesn’t look good, and based on the latest trailer that debuted at Spike’s VGAs, Gears still looks to be in good hands and will most likely deliver an entertaining new story with Baird and Cole in the leads and a solid multiplayer experience that will please fans.
