Gears of War creator Cliff Bleszinski has confessed that he is a fan of Microsoft's Kinect, but states that the series' next installment will not feature any support for the device.
Earlier this year Gears of War: Exile, long rumoured to be a Kinect-based series spin-off, was cancelled. Quizzed by games™ as to what aspects from Gears of War: Exile might make it in to Gears of War: Judgment, Bleszinski confirmed that Kinect support is not on the cards.
“There are not a lot of things that wound up in there. There’s one thing actually that you just reminded me of though, is that we are not supporting Kinect in Gears Judgment. I like Kinect, I’ve been a fan of it, but I don’t think it has been fully realised as far as the potential of the device. Dance Central 3 looks great and all, but I’m curious how the ‘core’ games will work out," Bleszinski told the publication.
An official release date for Gears of War: Judgement is yet to be announced, although ShopTo "estimates' the title will release on February 8, 2013.
