"You will not be disappointed in the next ten years," Ortega said. "It's a ten-year plan. Gears is long-term. The lancer is the new lightsaber."If you played through Gears of War 2 then you know there's all kinds of dangling threads waiting to be exploited. If Epic Games plays their cards right, they could wind up with the video game equivalent of Lost in terms of high-brow storytelling.
Ortega was also asked about single-player centric downloadable content for Gears of War 2. "Keep watching," Ortega said. "You won't be disappointed." Which as one who is primarily a single player, makes me happy :-)
