Gears of War 3 to hit April 2011?

From Joystiq
 "Microsoft's keen to avoid a clash with Halo: Reach and wants Natal to own Christmas," alleges Edge's source. "That's why we won't be seeing Gears Of War 3 until next year, but expect a major marketing push ahead of its release."
The first Gears was a revelation, but the sequel didn't do much for me. If this doesn't do something to push the genre I can't say I'm very interested in another UE3 third person shooter.

The problem with the second game wasnt that the game wasn't good. Excluding (at least from what I heard) the multiplay, which was apparently kind not so great, the gameplay was polished, but the story just sucked balls. Hopefully they'll start explaining shit instead of stringing people along with a couple of memorable levels, but no real narrative substance.

If you are looking to Gears for story I suspect you will always be disappointed.  The only problem I had with Gears 2 was the new weapons being just gimmicks.  Try them out once and then go back to the old trusted lancer and sniper rifle combo.

@Lowbrow: Playing Gears of War for the story is like playing God of War for the exploration. I mean sure, it's there, but that's not what the games are about.
