Gears of War boss Rod Fergusson, who's worked on the series since the halcyon days of its chainsaw machine-gunning gameplay, is stepping away from the franchise.
Fergusson's tenure of Gears of War saw the franchise move from its home at Epic Games to the Vancouver-based, Microsoft-owned studio The Coalition. During that time, the Gears franchise grew a reputation for sporting some of the finest accessibility features seen in triple-A games.
"Leaving is bittersweet," said Fergusson in his posts. "As I love our Gears family, the fans, and everyone at The Coalition and Xbox. Thank you, it has been an honor and a privilege to work with you all."
