Gears of Wars: Tactics, a Kinect-only RTS based in the Gears universe, has been outed by a number of low quality screens snapped from early alpha footage of the game.

The screens show off a top-down perspective, with a squad of four being led by Baird. VGleaks, which posted the images, claims players control the action by using a finger to draw a path for soldiers to take.

VGleaks also states that Epic Games was working on the title for the Xbox 360, but is believed to have switched development to Durango.

Back in November 2010 it was rumoured that Epic was ready to show off a Kinect-enabled Gears of War game at the December 2010 VGAs, although this was later rumoured to be an on-rails shooter.

If it were turn-based, a la XCom... and Kinect-enabled... I could see the combo working very well. Real Time, however, is a different story...

If the rumoured gesture controls of Kinect 2 are true then this could be a very interesting game.

Playing an RTS game on consoles is awkward enough, trying to play one using a Kinect would be a nightmare. I very much doubt this game will ever see the light of day, and is most likely a cancelled project.
