MS Buys Gears of War, Hires Rod Fergusson

Microsoft Studios announces the acquisition of the Gears of War franchise from Epic Games, including "rights to all existing and future games, entertainment experiences and merchandise" from the third-person shooter series. The game is being handed over to Black Tusk for development, and the announcement grants this is an "as-yet-unproven studio" but Microsoft's Phil Spencer says this is "a world-class team with deep experience and passion for the shooter space, and specifically the 'Gears of War' franchise." This experience extends to the hiring of Rod Fergusson, the Gears of War producer who went to Irrational as producer on BioShock Infinite last summer. Says Microsoft's Hanno Lemke: "We hope to be able to share more news about 'Gears of War' later this year."
