This will probably ensure all future games are multiplatform.

Why?

Epic still have overall control of themselves with a little over half of the stocks, also judgement came out 10 months after this deal and is an Xbox exclusive.

Games may or may not be exclusives next gen, all I'm saying is this acquisition won't have a direct bearing.

I wouldnt put money on it, the only surprise for me is that MS didnt take opportunity and snap them up! There is no way they will let Gears go multi platform.
