Gears of War 3 has been delayed until Fall 2011.
Gears of War 3 promises to be the biggest entertainment launch of 2011. 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.
So a business decision not a quality issue basically. They want GOW3 to be the COD of 2011. The big name game for the holidays next year.
Personally I am a little disappointed, but this industry is first and foremost a business. Money comes first and I get that. So with this extra time my expectations have risen. This game better freakin blow me right the hell away.
