Epic Games' Director of Production, Rod Fergusson (@gearsviking

to confirm that, with the announcement of the new Gears
game, there will be no more DLC for Gears of War 3
In recent memory, when one has brought up the continuation of Epic's Gears of War
franchise, the general wisdom was that with Gears of War 3
completing the Marcus story arc, the series was essentially done, or at least on long hiatus. In fact, at a PAX East panel, the sense was that Epic was happy to have seen Gears
through to a reasonable conclusion and was anxiously looking forward to developing other projects, such as the upcoming Fortnite
Whether or not this news is a surprise to you will really depend on how sincere you believe a developer is when they state that they're willing to put a key franchise on hold indefinitely. Today, Game Informer revealed
the image of their upcoming July issue, and for Gear-heads everywhere, it's an exciting one.
Let the speculation begin! Who is the shadowy figure being escorted by what looks to be the Onyx Guard? Where are they headed to? Will this be a full retail title or an arcade? Will Kinect be involved, as it was supposed to be with their cancelled Gears of War: Exile
? While we know it's in the Gears of War
Universe, will the game actually include that in the title?
You have the weekend to place your bets and make your claims. More details will become available once the magazine is released on this coming Monday.
