In news that doesn’t really surprise me, Microsoft released a statement to the media which pretty well says it all.
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.
Steven and I were just talking about this the other day. We were both under the impression Gears 3 was going to launch this holiday, but were surprised when we realized it was April of next year. Now it looks like Microsoft wants G3 to be their big holiday 2011 release. Honestly, can you blame them?
How do you feel about this news?
