“Gears of War is developed by Epic Games, and they’ve been our partners for a long time on Xbox 360. You should ask Epic Games about what they want to do,” Spencer explained.
“We haven’t announced anything yet about Gears of War, but we hope to bring it to Xbox One in some form. However, there’s nothing more I can tell you at this time,” he added.
A number of high profile members of the original Gears of War development team have left Epic Games, such as Chris Wynn, Cliff Bleszinski and Rod Fergusson.
The most recent Gears of War was developed by Bulletstorm studio People Can Fly.

The upcoming transition into a new generation of consoles is futzing with pre-order numbers for Call of Duty: Ghosts, according to CEO of Activision Publishing, Eric Hirshberg. During his company’s earnings call yesterday, Hirshberg noted that pre-orders for Ghosts are “well below the record-setting pace set by Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 last year,” and that the impending arrival of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One are to blame.
“Our quantitative consumer research indicates that hesitation amongst past COD pre-orderers is primarily due to not knowing which platform they will be playing on, which is natural at this time in the console transition,” he said. Despite the lower pre-order numbers, Hirshberg noted that “other key engagement metrics,” such as the number of people playing per month and per day, the amount of DLC sales and community engagement, are all higher than previous years. He also added that pre-orders are more than double that of the original Call of Duty: Black Ops, which was last time Activision introduced a new Call of Duty sub-brand.
Activision isn’t the first publisher to cite next-gen consoles for lower pre-order numbers. EA Sports brand president Peter Moore recently made similar statements, reporting “softness” in pre-orders for current-gen sports titles as we get closer to the launch of the PS4 and Xbox One.
Fans will be getting the Batman/Superman film they have been clamoring for, according to reports from The Hollywood Reporter. Man of Steel director Zach Snyder is reported to take the helm. While it seems that Henry Cavill will reprise his role as Superman in the film, no actor for Batman has yet been rumored. Man of Steel scribe David Goyer is set to pen the script.
Also rumored: a Flash film for 2016 and a JLA movie for 2017.
The Warner Bros. panel is happening at San Diego Comic-Con, and full details are expected to be released then.
SAN DIEGO — Vin Diesel surrendered to MTV’s questions about his Marvel meeting, while artfully avoiding any specific confirmations. He demonstrated that cool, gravely laugh, cautiously treading into top-secret territory at Comic-Con on Friday (July 19).
The last time Diesel came to SDCC, he was promoting a little movie called “Pitch Black.” Thirteen years later, he returned to unleash some killer red-band footage from “Riddick” to a vocal Hall H crowd. While the in-depth look at Diesel’s third cinematic turn as the goggle-wearing outer space badass was supercool, Twitter feeds were abuzz after he let slip a little Marvel Universe tidbit. “There is some very big news coming at the end of this month,” he teased.
Well, that certainly did little to quell the rampant speculation and excitement he ignited a short while ago when he took to social media to post about his mysterious meeting with Marvel. While he was ostensibly talking with MTV News to promote his R-rated return to the “Riddick” universe, the big super-powered elephant in the room was too big to ignore.
The big, super-powered green and yellow “elephant.”
“Oh God, Oh God. Wow. Uh… Hmm, uh…” he stuttered at the mention of the “M” word.
“Well, [to discuss it] in theory,” he began, cautiously. “I didn’t know there were over eight-thousand characters in their library. Did you? Did you?! Eight-thousand characters! They were saying, ‘You know, Vin, we have eight-thousand characters…’ ”
So, did they open up a book and say, “Which one do you want?”
“No!” he said, laughing. “I mean, ya’ know, I hope there’s more thought than that. I mean, there’s two Visions, for the record. And people know one was created by Ultron, one was created by Proctor, as you know, if you follow…”
Wait, wait, wait. Mr. “Fast & Furious” sure seems to know an awful lot about The Vision. He’s informed about how the villainous android Ultron created the Vision, whose Silver Age incarnation debuted in The Avengers in 1968. He may know all about the Wonder Man and android Human Torch connections. He brought up alternative universe guy Proctor!
Not that Diesel is the guy who brought up The Vision himself while speaking to MTV News.
“No, but I’m not mentioning that character!” he countered. “I’m not mentioning that character, I was just saying there are eight-thousand characters and I gave an example of how one character might have two different versions!”
