Gears Of War: Exile Revealed
Epic Games apparently has another Gears of War in development. This past week they filed a trademark for the name Gears of War: Exile.
The trademark applications (via Siliconera) include an image of a proposed logo. The trademark was filed for use with t-shirts, a "series of computer game hint books and instruction manuals," and "video game software". In other words, we're talking about a game and not simply a novel or comic book.
Epic is currently developing Gears of War 3 for the Xbox 360 and will release it this fall. Perhaps this trademark is the first step in their next console game. It's hard to believe they've got two console games in development, though, as GoW3 must be eating up a lot of time and resources. That being said, you don't need to have a game in production to simply reserve a title.
It's also possible that they're planning to spin the series off on a different platform. Maybe Exile is for iPhone? Epic proved that Unreal Engine 3 can run on iOS with the release of Infinity Blade back in December. Wouldn't it make sense to bring Gears, their biggest UE3-powered series, to the iOS as well? Given Gears's Xbox 360 roots, though, we can't rule out a Windows Phone 7 game, either.
