Is anyone else as surprised as me that no big box expansion was either announced or hinted at for this game?

From what I can tell this game has done pretty well for FFG, hence why I am shocked that there was no news

GIVE US MORE FFG!

I agree! This is one of my favorite games. I've played all of the scenarios out and really want to see more! I have the recent print expansion which is cool and all, but come on one with figures and new tiles!!!

Companies rarely discuss sales of games except when they sell extremely well.

This game has been out for a year now. I think if there were going to be expansions we'd have seen/heard something long ago. FFG isn't a company that lets its games go for months without expansion news and/or releases if their marketing agenda calls for it.

Look at Descent 2.0 - it's been on store shelves for what, a month? They just announced an expansion that we'll probably see released within the next few months.

Sadly, it looks like Gears of War is to remain a single standalone release.

If you look amount of discussion in GoW MP1 you can see that it hardly indicates massive sales. Probably the boardgame sold something though.

I was told from board game store in Finland that FFG will focus in the future on non-licenced games. Don't know where this originated bu that was what I was told.

I would be surprised if GoW would receive any expansions, but due to lower costs I guess MP2 could be possible. We have of course few fan made scenarios though and nothing prevens making knes owns...except time.

Does ffg own the branding and stuff for descent or is that someone elses creation?

With the licenses for star wars, warhammer and 40k, lord of the rings, game of thrones, h.p. lovecraft, battlestar galactica and dust, this is a poor excuse for not adding a proper expansion for gears of war. maybe it just wasnt as popular as expected?
