Gears of War 3 Blast Gamers With April Launch

gears of war 3 blast gamers with april launchHardcore gamers on many platforms enjoy RPGs and FPS titles, making these some of the most popular, and profit-generating categories. Game consoles often fight for the exclusive rights to blockbuster franchise like Halo and Gears of War.

The gaming world is anticipating the latest entry in the Gears of War franchise, Gears of War 3. The launch date for this new title has been announced as April of 2011. That means fans of the Gears of War franchise have a year to wait for the next entry in the saga.

Gears of War 3 is the finale to the trilogy that is an Xbox 360 exclusive. The specific release date is pegged as April 5, 2011 reports NewsObserver. Gears developer Epic has also stated that it has a new franchise set to launch next year called Bulletstorm, which it expects to be one of its next big franchises.

“Our absolute intention is to have every year be our best year, but 2011 is looking awfully sexy right now,” Epic CEO Michael Capps said.

Other than offering up a firm launch date, Epic is mum on the particulars for Gears of War 3. Capps would only state that the game will be the climax to the franchise and fans will be excited. Epic has been showing off a trailer for the game called Ashes to Ashes that will give fans a glimpse at what the game promises. Perhaps more details will be offered at E3 this summer.

Microsoft has previously stated that hardcore games such as Gears of War and Halo scare some casual gamers away from the Xbox 360. However, the company continues to offer the games. Earlier this year analysts stated that they believe Epic regrets making Gears of War an Xbox 360 exclusive. However, once the trilogy is ended on the Xbox, perhaps the game will come to the PS3 and PC.
