It appears someone screwed up over at Microsoft, as late yesterday evening the above advertisement could be seen on the dashboard of the Xbox 360. We knew this was going to get announced, and we expected the announcement to come when Cliff Bleszinski went on the Jimmy Fallon show. Problem is, he never made the show. Clearly someone forgot to inform Microsoft’s advertising group, and voila, everyone now knows Gears of War 3 is shipping next April. We can’t say we’re surprised, and I’m sure a lot of people had a good laugh at this leak. Anyone remember the PSPgo? The same thing happened there. So Gear-heads, prepare for one hell of an epic conclusion to the Gears of War trilogy come next April.
