Gears Of War For Kinect An On-Rails Shooter, Says Source

Microsoft’s Kinect may get its first taste of hardcore flavour – made a little bit softer – in the form of an on-rails Gears of War shooter, pictured above, said to be in development for the Xbox 360.

According to sources claiming to be familiar with the project, the previously rumored Gears of War Kinect project is indeed real. Based on details provided to Kotaku, it appears to re-use some assets from Gears of War 2.

Late last year, Epic Games teased a new, unexpected Gears of War gameplay reveal planned for the Spike TV Video Game Awards. That unveiling was pulled prior to the taping of the Spike VGAs, promised for a reveal at a later date.

In the weeks prior, IGN reported that a Gears of War title for Kinect was in the works. Gears of War designer Cliff Bleszinski responded to that rumour, assuring fans that there would be “No Kinect in Gears of War 3.”

Last month, Epic Games announced a new Gears collection, the Gears of War Triple Pack, and filed for a new trademark, Gears of War: Exile, as spotted by Siliconera.

Kotaku has contacted Epic Games seeking comment, but has not yet heard back.
