Gears of War for PC was announced at E3 one year after it was released for 360, so what do you guys think are the chances that Gears of War 2 will be announced for PC at this years E3?

Even if it was, unless they somehow fix what is broken, I wouldn't get too excited.

Yeah, the only way I would be interested is if they add something extra, as they did in the PC version of Gears 1...

They said they weren't going to port GoW 2 to the PC due to inadequate sales and piracy for Gears 1. Whether they're going to stick with that is another issue altogether

Well, I'd like for it to come to PC, and even if it's not annouced at E3 it'll probably come at some point anyway.

I can't believe a big bad developer like Epic would be worried about piracy.  Its the little companies that are really feeling it.  I feel bad for Ace Team, the guys who published Zeno Clash, they are getting hit hard by piracy.

Edit: I just checked a few torrent sites, and could not find a good download of Gears 1.  So I'm not sure what Epic is talking about.

I guarantee if it's not announced at this E3, it won't ever come to PC.  Same for Fable 2.

Same was said for Gear for War. It eventually came for PC. Same can be said for :-

1. Halo 3
2. Fable 2.
3. Crackdown.

All thanks to Games for Windows LIVE. It will be possible.
