This post is not about Gears of War 2. The mastermind behind the only Gears game that has ever been released, Cliff Bleszinski makes it clear in the interview that follows that he's not hinting at any sequel.
So don't go looking for clues.
Instead, let's focus on the matter at hand: A couple of weeks ago at the DICE gaming summit MTV Multiplayer asked Cliffy about just how a major new video game should be announced.
Why not just announce a sequel that everyone expects, be it for Gears or whatever? Why be coy? Who benefits? Who loses? And, hey, is Too Human developer Denis Dyack right? He says games should stay out of the press until they're done. Agree, Cliffy?
