Mark Rein Clarifies: Epic Owns Gears Of War IP, “Can Do What We Want With It”

by Ernice Gilbert on March 15th, 2010, under Epic Games

Just through giving reasons why Microsoft should purchase Epic Games, now we’ve learnt that the studio completely owns the Gears of War IP and can do whatever they want with it. I had no doubts that Epic owned Gears, however some rumors claimed Microsoft purchased a piece of it. Not so says Rein, speaking in an interview with VG247 at GDC last week.

“We own Gears of War. We can do what we want with it,” Rein said. “We have a great relationship with Microsoft, and they helped turn the game into a huge success for us, and we are pretty happy with the way things are going”.

So, will the game go Multiplatform? After all the man said they could do “anything” with it.

    Hmmm, i doubt the game will go Multiplatform now, but i think Rein just said this to show that Epic has control on their games. They don’t want Gears to turn into a halo franchise.
