Gears of War 3: TBA


Did you see the awe­some game­play at E3? Were you get­ting excit­ed about Gears of War 3 in the spring?? Well allow me to crush those dreams for you. Gears 3 had a launch date of April 5, 2011. Well now you will have to wait until the Fall of 2011. The rea­son? No one knows. Microsoft has come out and said “Gears of War 3 promis­es to be the biggest enter­tain­ment launch of 2011” and “The teams at Microsoft Game Stu­dios and Epic Games have done great work thus far ready­ing the title for release in the Spring of 2011. How­ev­er, we’ve elect­ed to move the launch of Gears of War 3 until Fall 2011 to make it the mar­quee title for the hol­i­day sea­son.” There has been spec­u­la­tion that they moved the launch date for Gears 3 to make more room for Epic Games oth­er title Bul­let­storm which is set to release Feb 22, 2011. One has to won­der though is Bul­let­storm going to be good enough to keep our atten­tion away from Gears 3 get­ting pushed back? Not sure. We’ll just have to wait.….even longer now.

    I am real­ly glad that they pushed the game back. I have always been a strong advo­cate of push­ing a game back so that the game can meet a cer­tain qual­i­ty than releas­ing a game that is not fin­ished and needs patch after patch just so you can stom­ach the game. With this delay I hope that they take the mul­ti­play­er back to code and fix the bro­ken mess that it has always been, and this goes for any unre­al 3 game. The engine needs a major over­haul and not just “new” addi­tions.

    I agree cab­bie but from what I’m tak­ing from ‘Nade’s arti­cle is they’re just try­ing to max­i­mize their open­ing week income.… but it’s always nice to dream and think that Cliffy B. will get his crew to fix his issues instead of just being a cool mouth­piece for epic
    I was also think­ing maybe the Halo release scared them alit­tle after see­ing the num­bers…

    I told my friend this, who is a huge Gears Of War fan, and he about flipped. He could­n’t believe that they pushed it back 5 months I swear he was about to cry.
    I don’t know if I buy that they are mov­ing it back to “ensure qual­i­ty” because thats not activi­sions cur­ren­ty style. I find it more like­ly that they are push­ing it back to increase over­all sales for their release bul­let­storm. I sus­pect there will be an exces­sive amount of adver­tis­ing for Bul­let­storm.
    This is just my opin­ion but it’s what I sus­pect is going to hap­pen.
