Earlier this year Microsoft made an announcement: they'd acquired the rights to the Gears of War franchise in full. Acquiring said rights from Epic Games meant they'd be able to push the game to an Awesome-pocalypse degree as they did with Sunset Overdrive. Microsoft Studios will be involved, and Black Tusk would be developing. But as of January 29th, 2014, this development team had only been on the project for a week. That's not nearly long enough for a full release even one year later, is it?
