Next 'Gears of War' Game Not Coming to Xbox 360

The next 'Gears of War' title will not be released for Xbox 360, as the developer will focus solely on the Xbox One platform.

The next Gears of War title will not be coming to Xbox 360. Jack Felling, a developer from Black Tusk Studios, made the announcement on Twitter, following the recent trend of companies creating projects with only the new consoles in mind.

"No, sorry, it won't be available on the 360, but it will be available for the Xbox One," said Felling in response to a fan.

We still don't have a release date for the upcoming game, and little is known about it. Talking with IGN late last year, Phil Spencer, head of Microsoft's Xbox division, revealed that it would not be a complete reboot, as was initially thought. "I wouldn't call it a reboot, because I don't think the franchise necessarily needs that," said Spencer, though he conceded that there were missteps, especially with 2013's installment Judgment.

He added, "I think we can make sure that we're investing in this thing for the next decade, which is how I want to think about it. The thing that was great about the early Gears of War games, to me, [was] just the epic scale of the settings that I was in. I think the story and the setting and what they're going through in a Gears of War—the name of the game, it really meant something to what that game was about. We've got to get back to that. The feeling of those individuals."
