Dead Space Dev Apologises for Knocking Gears of War

EA’s Dead Space story producer, Chuck Beaver has apologised for his negative comments about Epic’s Gears Of War series.

The apology stems from an interview which appeared on EA’s official blog knocking Gears Of War for its, “atrocious, offensive violations of story basics.” Beaver famously said the Gears of War series had “literally the worst writing in games.”

The post has now been removed and EA has issued a statement to IGN [as cited by GIBiz] claiming that his comments had been taken out of context.

“It is an epic franchise that has trail-blazed more than a few industry-leading player experiences and mechanics.

“It is deservedly recognised as a top-tier title. Its success as a property is evidenced by its giant sales and rabid fan base. The industry is far better for Epic’s contributions, and we all owe a great deal of inspiration to their work.” reads the statement.
