This is a little confusing since Microsoft owns the publishing rights to Gears of War and Epic is only the developer.

Anyways...they should just kill it after the last game.

Yeah they own the publishing rights to the first 3 games and its spin off but they don't own the franchise, the same deal with the first Mass Effect as well.

I guess we shouldn't be surprised though considering how bad the Xbox One is doing it is no wonder Epic is thinking of jumping ship. Microsoft may have been able to give Epic enough incentive to stick around on the 360 to justify losing customers they might have had on other platforms but considering how bad their latest console is doing Epic probably realises that they are better off branching out to other platforms.

How is the Xbox One doing bad? Its still the best launch of all three Xbox's, even if they are worldwide numbers. The first Xbox only sold a total of 24 million units to the PS2s 150 million, yet it was not a failure and still had plenty of exclusives.

Worse case scenario it goes multi platform and really that's not that big of a deal at all any more.

TBH though as long as its like GOW 1-3 and not like Judgement, I will be excited to see a new game. With both Cliff and Rod gone from Epic, I see them staying with People Can Fly and the crappy Halo clone that they gave us in Judgement.
