Cliff Bleszinski has promised "very smooth" online multiplayer for the launch day of Gears of War 3.
"It's a September 20 launch date with a very smooth online experience," he said, speaking at a Microsoft Q&A session in Los Angeles ahead of this week's E3 expo. "In this day and age you don't want to be a campaign rental, that's the bottom line."
Bleszinski also confirmed Gears of War 3 will support dedicated servers.
Earlier the Epic designer spoke of the need to move on from the studio's troubles with multiplayer in Gears of War 2.
