Gears of War 3 Delayed – I am inconsolable

58 second read


Some awful news was announced on Friday and it has taken all weekend for me to get over it… Gears of War is the title that really brought me back into gaming in a huge way after years of nothing really doing it for me.

I am even happy to forgive Epic for Gears 2 which was not a worthy successor to Gears of War. Granted the game wasn’t bad, but the awesome multiplayer of the original just didn’t make it into the sequel and all hopes were now resting on Gears 3 in April.

Unfortunately this hope has now been dashed with the announcement that Gears of War 3 has been delayed until the end of 2011.

I have no idea why it was delayed and to be fair I don’t care, I want my game and I want it now.

Okay so maybe I haven’t gotten over the initial disappointment yet.. either way we aren’t getting our Gear on until this time next year and that makes me sad.

    So so bleak it was delayed. It’s gone from that nice quiet part of the year straight into the busy one. :/

    @Gavin: Epic made a statement saying that it was an agreement between them and the publisher (MS) to shift the release date to the end of the year to increase sales potential. I think we all know this is bullshit and Gears will sell just as well in April as it would at the end of the year.

    My theory is that MS core lineup for next year is looking so slim and the new Halo game from 343 studios wont be ready in time to be milked so they decided to delay a finished game ( Yes Epic have confirmed this is not a quality issue and the game will be ready well before April ). This pisses me off as much as everyone else. This was the only 360 exclusive i was looking forward to next year 🙁

    Yeah I think they made it pretty clear that they are delaying it purely for marketing reasons, and that really pisses me off. We now all have to wait just to that they can spend more time building hype.

    It seems pretty clear that Microsoft don’t have anything major lined up for the end of next year, so they are delaying Gears of War 3 so that they can boast about the holiday line-up.

    I am not impressed.
