If you own an Xbox One, October 11 is the day you get to start seeing the new Gears of War 4 video game on your gaming console.
This will also be the same case for Microsoft Windows, however, the biggest announcement of all could be that of the upcoming Gears of War movie. Set to be taken care of by Universal Pictures, the film adaptation will be produced by famous names in the industry – Dylan Clark and Scott Stuber. The movie is based on the shooter franchise and in fact, it has been in the rumor mills for years now and finally, it is going to happen.
Despite the long wait, the Gears of War movie will soon be here and according to the head of The Coalition, the game’s developer, Rod Fergusson, there couldn’t be any better timing for the release of the movie. In his view, the release of this Gears of War film will play a huge role in supporting the gaming franchise in a perfect way than using novels and comic books.
As for now, it is hard to tell whether the new Gears of War movie will be an exact adaptation of the games or it will come in with a totally new approach to the whole thing. But according to Fergusson, it is important to distinguish the two by letting “the movies be movies” and games be games. Given that some video game movies have failed to impress due to being copycats of the franchise, Fergusson hints that the Gears of War movie could take a different setting from the game.
With two different audiences here, it will be a huge task for Universal Pictures to impress both parties with this Gears of War movie.
Remember, if you can’t wait for the movie, the just-announced Gears of War 4 will be here starting next week Tuesday.
