Sucks that we have an extra 5 month wait, but Gears never seemed like a spring release to me anyway. I always thought April was a weird month for Gears.
" Well, that's pretty lame but understandable from Microsoft's point of view. To add a word of hope, maybe the game turned out to be just too damn good to be released in a month like March? "This has never happened in the history of movies, TV, or anything else entertainment related.
I feel like this game would sell just as many copies all year round, I mean it's well known enough to the point that it'd be bought by all the people that're even remotely interested in ever buying it.
Ah well, I'll probably buy it, but it's no skin off my nose that it's been pushed back...
Gears of War is fun, but it never seems to capture my interest for all that long, so I'm not bothered.
Just wait until the hype machine kicks in, hopefully I'll miss a lot of it but I'll probably get dragged in eventually, DAMN MY IMPULSIVE PURCHASING STREAK!
Video games for life!
Very annoying. Waiting another half a year purely because of business, not development, is just not going to be acceptable to the user. Such a shame.

"Word on the street is that people like to give games to other people as presents around this time, so sales tend to skyrocket with a good push."
How could anyone hate you, Mr. Nicholson?
This lets me think that Microsoft has got nothing on its plate for fall of 2011, which isn't a good sign for them.
I love that statement... summarizes to: Hey man... we're sorry you're going to have to wait longer to play our game. Stay tuned though! We're going to talk to you a lot more about how awesome it is really soon! Hearing more about how finished and awesome it is should make the wait *far* more tolerable for our fans out there.
November 7 is my guess. Third time now.
So Gears 3 might go up against Uncharted 3 in Fall of 2011? Interesting...
I think that's fine. When Gears 2 came out the multiplayer was very unpolished, the game was almost to the point of being broken. Considering the developers get an extra year (if you consider the two year cycle) to develop the game, there should be no excuse for every part of this game to be amazing on release day. If anything, this delay only makes me more excited for the game.
come one, seriously (3.0)?
Running away from Dargon age 2 and Final fantasy 14 I guess
There's a big crossover between gears fans and 100+ hour long RPG fans...
God damn it. I really hope the multiplayer isn't so infuriating this time around. Gears 2 just felt so cheap whenever you'd die. I wasn't very good at it but it didn't even seem fair sometimes. I'll buy Gears 3 to see how the trilogy ends but unless they address the balancing issues that were rampant in the second one I won't be online.
I better be blinded by the additional polish.
Eh tonnes of other games coming out next year so whatever. Also the less chance of frustrating or buggy sequences in a game the better.
well that is a bummer.
Aw. Come on.
These push backs are really starting to get annoying *sighs*
" @ahaisthisourchance said:That's how I roll" I can still wait. I've waited for Duke Forever since 1997, and I can wait for this a little longer "When you put it like that then all delays seem meaningless. "
Honestly though. Who didn't see that coming?
Shocked? no. Disappointed? no. Hungry, HELL YES! Waffles inbound!
" I can still wait. I've waited for Duke Forever since 1997, and I can wait for this a little longer "When you put it like that then all delays seem meaningless.
" Wouldn't releasing it in April be more profitable because there probably won't be a lot of competition? I mean, if you're the only major title coming out in a period, people are more likely to buy that title right? Look, for example, at the launch of ME2 last January. "it's gears of war, it doesn't run away from the competition, the competition runs away from it
Since the first half of 2011 is now suddenly stacked, this is not a huge deal. In fact, the wallet is breathing a small sigh of relief.
makes me wonder what they had intended to release as their premier title for holidays.
Why not announce it for the holiday season in the first place? When I heard the April launch date I knew it would be pushed back six months.
They should have just announced it for the Fall to begin with. No one would have expected it to come out in April if they hadn't said anything anyway.
You know, this could actually be great for the game. If it was on track to be done and polished by spring, imagine how much better they can make it by the fall.

It happens sometime but like everyone says, there are lots of cool games coming out before it in 2011 so I'm not to bummed about this.
Well fuck you Microsoft, how bout that?
You have no other exclusive games so you do this to your only one? Good stuff
Rest assured it's not because the game isn't finished, we just want to make as much money as we can.
Wow that really sucks ass.
Bummer I had high hopes that the Spring release for Gears meant Microsoft had a new exclusive they were gonna release next fall.
"*Clears throat* AWWWW, C'MON! "
Time to buy a PS3!
Oh well...enough other awesome stuff coming out next year, and I prefer having my main huge multiplayer game for the year to come out around Q3 really, just make sure it's awesome please Young Clifford.
