36 Gears of War and Dishonored remakes revealed

Two upcoming re-releases may have just been outed thanks to the thorough-ness of the Brazilian Advisory Rating System. While we’d heard hints that a remake of Gears of War was in the works, we didn’t quite expect Dishonored to receive the same treatment… and yet, here we are.

Apparently titled Gears of War: Ultimate Edition, it looks like Marcus Fenix is headed back to consoles – and we’d put money on it arriving on Xbox One if nothing else. It’s reportedly in the works at Splash Damage, the team behind Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory and, more recently, the terribly enjoyable Dirty Bomb. At this stage, we don’t know whether it’ll just be a polished-up version of the original game, or if the entire trilogy will be given a new lick of paint, but we’re expecting to hear more at E3, if not before.

It’s the first time we’ve even heard inklings of Dishonored: Definitive Edition, so details are even thinner on the ground for that one. We’re guessing it’ll be released some time later this year, and current theories suggest it’ll be a modern (PS4 / Xbox One) re-release of the 2013 Game of the Year edition, which featured the original 2012 game plus all previously-released DLC.

Predictably, none of the studios reportedly involved with either project is quite ready to talk about it, yet. Rumours and leaks are one thing, but a Ratings Board update is somewhat more tangible, so while we’re pretty confident both of these will eventuate, we’re prepared to wait a while to find out more.

E3 2015 kicks off in Los Angeles on June 16 – Bethesda is holding a pre-event event on June 14 (which is where news about Dishonored is likely to surface), while Microsoft hosts a press conference on June 15 (so expect Gears of War news then).
