Gears of War: Exile Has Been Scrapped

Epic Games design director Cliff Bleszinski has told GameSpot that Gears of War: Exile has been cancelled. The title was rumoured to be a kinect enabled Arcade game based on a prequel story to the original Gears of War for Xbox 360.

Bleszinski to GameSpot:

“Let’s just bury the hatchet now,” he said. “Gears of War: Exile was an unannounced game that I can’t give any details about that has since been cancelled.”

Our own speculation on the cancellation of Gears of War: Exile would have us suggest that this title was cancelled due to Bulletstorm developers, People Can Fly working on a full retail Gears of War prequel game – unlikely to be 100% for Kinect, but who knows – it might even use voice control features?

As always, when official announcements have been made on future projects – we’ll keep you posted.
