Rod has tweeted his departure ,
Thanks for your hard work at making Gears with Cliff, You both have impacted my life, I have met countless people playing the franchise throughout the years,
(I really hope we can fix 5 and get more people playing it)
I hope TC can provide an update, how this will impact the game. Is it business as usual? Will we ever get the movie?
this is the tweet:
Starting in March, I will join Blizzard to oversee the Diablo franchise. Leaving is bittersweet as I love our Gears family, the fans, and everyone at The Coalition and Xbox. Thank you, it has been an honor and a privilege to work with you all. pic.twitter.com/0FuO3RFYSQ— Rod Fergusson (@GearsViking) February 5, 2020
