I think you misunderstood, I know there is going to be no BR for Gears. But to be honest it can work with Gears because it can definitely make use of a lot of lore from in unverse. For example to innovate gameplay and spice things up they can make use of kyrll storms , razorhail and windflare.
Regardless of no BR, the only game I’m interested in 5, tatical game and that pop game doesn’t interest me to be honest.
They wont do it personally maybe after Gears Story is done but i think they know that Gears fans are hardcore and we dont want Gears to be A BR like every other game now. Unique is good and that is something Gears has and it wont change.
Have to remember Gears is a tight community they dont want to push them all away. Also the BR trend will soon or later die.
