Ken Lobb: Black Tusk to Create Innovative Gears Of War for Xbox One

By   /   Apr 8, 2014

In an interview with Edge, Microsoft Game’s Ken Lobb said that Black Tusk Studios who are tasked to develop Gears of War game for the Xbox One are going to make an innovative entry to the series.

When asked about how he feels about taking control of the Gears of War series, he said:

I actually have tons of respect for Chuck [Osieja, creative director] and all the guys up at Black Tusk. I think the reality is what we have is innovative Gears Of War. That’s what I believe they’re going to make.

He continued to talk about how the studio has been testing different concepts that will really fit into one of the most popular franchise of all time.

They’re an internal studio, but the reality is it’s cool to have [an IP] that can be a grand slam right out of the gate. The concepts they’ve been toying with are awesome.

You take what they were thinking about and their expertise on Unreal Engine 4, because that’s what they’ve been playing with since their founding, and really go with the IP.

Again, this was a mutually agreed thing. It’s not, ‘Here’s this thing you must take.’ That’s not the way Phil [Spencer] works; that’s not the way we work.

So far no new details have been provided on the upcoming Gears of Wars game but we know that it will be an Xbox One exclusive whenever it comes out!
