You know the Gears of Wars look: brown, bombed out buildings and more brown. Oh, there's some grey, too. The games have really set off a visual flair.
But Gears designer Dude Huge (aka "DH" aka "Cliff Bleszinski") is ready to move on.
"Stylistically though," he says, "I'd love to play in a different field in the near future in regards to what your typical expectation of a Gears of War game actually is." Lots of pastels, please!
Gears of War 2 is a slight departure visually from the first game — nothing radical, though.
Huge currently has "five projects going on right now" and says that he and his company Epic Games are going to take more risks in the future as well as make "a few safe bets that people won't be surprised to see coming." Gears of War 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7, anyone?
