You’ve been waiting for it. We’ve been waiting for it. Will the sequel to Gears of War finally be announced? TeamXbox speculates that Epic Games and Microsoft will be announcing Gears of War 2 at the 2008 Game Developer Conference. Details in the full article.
Gamers have been clamoring for a sequel to Gears of War (360, PC) as soon as they finished the game, with their consoles still warm from hours of playing. Will we finally hear the announcement of the game’s development? TeamXbox speculates that we just might.
Looking at the floor plan of the 2008 Game Developer Conference, the largest floor spaces have been reserved for Epic Games and Microsoft. Of course that’s not enough for speculations to start. Both are major studios so it’s not surprising that they have big floor spaces.
The sliver of hope that these two will announce Gears of War 2 comes from the two big floor spaces being placed side by side with each other. Furthermore, the two studios have no prior connection other than the Gears of War project.
This is all only speculation of course so we shouldn’t get our hopes up just yet, but we can always keep our fingers crossed.
