Gears of War 3 for April 2011
Well, I’m glad to hear this, although it may be hard to remember this far in advance, but a good game is a good game and the 1st 2 were not disappointing, so I’m sure this will rock too. Thanks for the story 1up : Gears of War 3 appears to have been revealed a little earlier than Microsoft and Epic intended. The announcement you see in the picture below appeared on the Xbox Live Spotlight this morning sans an official announcement. The announcement mostly serves as official acknowledgment for what we already know; namely that Gears of War 3 exists and that it’s launching April 2011. This announcement was more than likely set to go live following Cliff Bleszinski’s appearance on Jimmy Fallon, but the timing was never reset after he was bumped by Justin Bieber. Rumored details emerged yesterday, suggesting that the series will ditch its brown and grey palette for the bright colors of summer. Underwater levels and additional tweaks to the signature cover system are also expected. Bleszinski is set to appear on Jimmy Fallon’s show this Monday, so we’ll likely get our first real look at Gears of War 3 then. Until then, consider this one confirmed.
