Microsoft Acquire GOW

Microsoft has officially announced the acquisition of one of the Xbox Consoles' most predominant exclusive series, Gear of War. The acquisition includes the rights to all past and future Gear of War titles, and merchandise.

The news of this acquisition was followed by the official announcement that their newly founded development studio, Black Tusk Studios (formally Microsoft Vancouver), are currently working on an upcoming Gear of War title possibly for the Xbox One platform.

The Gears of War franchise was created and owned by the Unreal Engine developers, Epic Studios, who decided to move on from the series and work on a different genre of titles. They are currently working on the PC title Fortnite, which is slated for a 2014 release.
