Gears of War part of "ten-year plan", says series writer

Joshua Ortega reveals the "long-term" nature of the franchise at the New York Comic-Con

Epic's Gears of War scribe, Joshua Ortega, has said the series will be "long-term" and could continue on for as much as ten years.

Speaking at the New York Comic-Con, Ortega talked about the developer's future plans for the series, comparing the two blockbuster games to the Star Wars franchise in terms of opportunities and ambitions.

"You will not be disappointed in the next ten years," Ortega said, as reported by IGN. "It's a ten-year plan. Gears is long-term. The Lancer is the new Lightsaber."

When asked if there were any plans for more single-player downloadable content for Gears of War 2, he responded: "Keep watching... You won't be disappointed."
