The internet is abuzz this morning as Gears of War 3 has been accidentally confirmed on Xbox LIVE. The leaked information was announced by way of the Spotlight menu where an image of the universally recognizable Gears of War symbol with the words, “Gears of War 3 Announced; The epic story concludes April 2011“.
The reason for the leak might have had something to do with Cliff Blesziski’s originally planned debut on The Jimmy Fallon show, which had to be pushed back so the show can accomodate teen heartthrob Justin Bieber. Unfortunately, it looks like no one notified whoever was sitting at the Xbox LIVE controls and thus, the big reveal was prematurely leaked.
So we now know three things: A) Gears of War 3 in fact exists, which we knew that it would and B) It’ll mark the end of the franchise, which we knew too, and C) It’ll be released next Spring.
