March 19 will be the release date for Gears of War: Judgement, the series prequel from Bulletstorm studio People Can Fly, while original company Epic Games is beavering away on development platform Unreal Engine 4 and, presumably, something for the next Xbox.
All three entries to the Xbox 360's Gears of War series have commanded average review scores of over 90%, while People Can Fly proved their ability with 2011's innovative and whacky shooter Bulletstorm.
Gears is not the only Xbox 360 staple to swap studios - Forza's racing game team Turn 10 gave Forza: Horizon to the speed freaks at Playground Games.
Also, Microsoft is expected to announce and release a new home console in 2013, as is Sony; Nintendo's Wii U is expected before December and the Android-powered budget box Ouya has March 2013 in its sights. - Relaxnews 2012
