Still wondering when Epic Games will finally unleash Gears of War 2 for the Xbox 360? A strong case has been made via the forums when someone posted a nice theory on it based from the new splash page on the game’s community site. Using seemingly random numbers from the dog tag displayed above, a code was deciphered to make sense out of the obscure.

When cross-referenced to an ASCII code table, the dog tag numbers that read “033-116-117-126-071” could be translated into “ESC N O V 9”. That would make a lot of sense as it falls right into the game’s release window.

Pretty clever, eh? It’s a nice way to create some buzz in the community, too. We’ll keep you updated for more on Gears of War 2 as soon as more word comes out.
