So anyone think Gears 3 will be announced soon?

Since Gear 2 was announced at the '08 GDC people think that Gears 3 will be announced at this year's GDC. Anyone think that will happen or that it will even be announced at all this year? I think the chances are slim even though I would like it to be announced but I think that MS wants to keep the spotlight on Fable 3 and Halo Reach so it will keep the wraps on Gears 3.

I think we will at least get an announcement this week. I believe David Ellis (former 1UPer, now working at 343 Industries) was talking about this a couple weeks back on 4 Guys 1UP and heavily hinted that it would be shown at GDC and have an earlier release date than we might think (think August-September) in order to get out this year and avoid Halo Reach and Fable 3.

It's very possible that it's at least announced this week.  I would wager we won't get a ton of details on it until E3 though.

I'd say sometime between now and E3, I still haven't beaten any Gears game. It makes me want to go and play them all, haha

I reckon it will be announced at e3 but come out next year, this year it's halo's turn.

I don't know about the whole Halo thing.  There will probably be Halo 4 or whatever in 2011 anyways.  
Anyways, I will disappointed if there is no announcement.

I wouldn't put my money on it but I won't be surprised if we do get an announcement for Gears of War 3 in the near future.

If it's coming out this year, I'd say it will be announced at GDC. I don't see it being announced at E3 and then a projected "fall release date." I know announce =/= time spent developing the game, but you're going to generate more hype 7-8 months before it comes out, not 3-4 months.

My guess if it is going to be announced this year then it may be released early next year.

I certainly hope so. I do like me some Gears.

Gears 1 is in the On Demand service. Good place to start.
