Anyone who’s been following the games industry for any amount of time should know all too well by now that a “final chapter” is normally anything but. Step forward Gears of War 3.
“The epic story concludes” – that was the tag line that accompanied the leaked confirmation of the game on Xbox Live last week. But following in the footsteps of fellow Xbox 360 stable mate Master Chief (“Halo 3: Finish the Fight”), it seems that Microsoft has plenty more in store for its popular series.
This morning’s press material for the game that accompanied its official reveal of Gears of War 3 on the Jimmy Fallon show in the US last night makes the following statement:
“Developed by acclaimed studio Epic Games and available only on Xbox 360, Gears of War 3 plunges players into a harrowing tale of hope, survival, and brotherhood that will conclude the current story arc for Gears of War.”
Halo ODST, Halo Wars, Halo Reach. That’s all we’re saying.
