Gears of War 3 delayed by (at least) five months
Oct 1st 2010, 11:11 am EST

Gears of War 3 was originally slated to ship on April 5th, 2011. However, the team over at Microsoft Game Studios has opted to push the game’s release date back a bit.

“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.”

It’s good to know that the developers are getting additional time add more polish. However, this delay is intended to please the company’s investors. Gears of War 3 will definitely make the Redmond giant’s Fall earnings for its Xbox division look spectacular (just like Halo Reach did for the company this year). It’s fair enough. Microsoft at the end of the day has to come up with ways to please their investors (without them there wouldn’t be a Microsoft in the first place). It just sucks that we have to wait a bit longer for the conclusion to one of the greatest series to come out this generation.
