Rod Ferguson, Black Tusk Studio’s studio manager, has revealed that no HD remaster of the original trilogy is in the works. Gears of War: Marcus Fenix Collection has long been rumored, and demanded by fans. The remaster for Xbox One would bundle Gears of War, 2, and 3 together in one convenient package, similar to Halo: The Master Chief Collection. However, while a collection won’t be there, Gears of War will be at E3 2015 in some form.
I love the passion, but there’s no Marcus Fenix Collection. We ARE working on other exciting Gears projects. I’ll see you at E3!

This is fantastic news for fans who have long waited for news on the franchise. The trilogy officially ended in 2011, though the prequel Gears of War: Judgment was released in 2013. Microsoft officially bought the Gears of War IP from Epic Games a year ago, adding it to their growing stable of IPs.
E3 2015 takes place June 16-18 in Los Angeles, California. Microsoft will hold their press conference on Monday, June 15. Traditionally, the home of Xbox is the first to hit the stage followed by EA, Ubisoft, and Sony.
