Gears of War creator Cliff Bleszinski has said the latest installment in the franchise, Gears of War: Judgment, won't utilize Kinect.
Bleszinski, however, admires the technology behind Kinect. Still, he believes Gears of War: Judgement won't benefit from it as it's simply not a good fit for the shooter.
"We are not supporting Kinect in Gears Judgment.
"I like Kinect, I've been a fan of it, but I don't think it has been fully realised as far as the potential of the device. Dance Central 3 looks great and all, but I'm curious how the 'core' games will work out."
A Kinect-compatible title in the Gears of War franchise, though, was purportedly once in the works. Epic had canceled Gears of War: Exile back in April, which was rumored to be an on-rails shooter for the Xbox 360's motion sensor peripheral.
Gears of War: Judgment, meanwhile, is currently scheduled for an early 2013 release.
