Phil Spencer, Xbox's head, said in an interview that Gears of War 4 will not be a reboot to the already well-known game. As the title already has numerous fans, Spencer does not think that the franchise needs a reboot and this is why there will be just another release to the series.

"I know Judgement didn't hit everybody's needs and desires in terms of what they wanted. But I think we can continue, we have a new team, [original Gears of War trilogy producer Rod Fergusson is] there to really help with the continuity. I think we can make sure that we're investing in this thing for the next decade, which is how I want to think about it," Spencer said.

He explained that for him the great thing in the early versions of Gears of War was the epic scale of the game, but he seemed to regret to say that this atmosphere of the game has changed over time.

"The thing that was great about the early Gears of War games, to me, [was] just the epic scale of the settings that I was in," he commented. "The story, the setting was a lot more what I would call soulful and maybe even a little dark. And [Rod Fergusson] and I have talked about this; I think the game over time became almost more of a parody of itself; not for any kind of horrible reasons. It's hard to continue to manage the IP," Spencer added.

The reason why Spencer believes the series can continue is that there is a new developers team behind the title. The third-person shooter game, which is developed by Epic Games, but is now owned by Microsoft, is expected to go back to its roots.

Still, players have to wait to see the new release and share their impressions.
