The (In)famous Surfer Girl answers a few more questions including one about Gears of War 2.
Could this mean that Gears 3 will be on next Xbox and it comes out in 2010? The way it's written definitly hints at it.
2010 huh? I better hurry up and lay me down the money for a 360. I wouldn't want to get a brand new console with only 3 years left in the product cycle instead of 4, would I? It's a good thing the 360 is $50 less than the PS3 or I'd feel like I was getting ripped off.
Who the *f* says that a new Xbox is coming in 2010? Perhaps your spreading FUD? Hmmmm?
that site looks like a 10 year old did it and how would she have any tru info on GOW?
Surfer Girl's a fat 45-year old man who lives in his parents' basement and has never had sex.
@Muppetmeat: What if it turns out to be Drew Barrymore? Then you'd certainly look the fool. ;-)
The thing is that original Gears took more than 2 years to make and even though they have the working engine now, 2008 still seems pretty early considering there has been no buzz or official word and the fact that Epic has been hard at work on UT3 and in 2008, they'll be working on UT3 for 360. Plus, they are already working on UE4.
I say 2009 for Gears 2 and 2012 for 3 (Which may be on Unreal Engine 4).
According to my Gamereactor Magazine, Epic are about half way in development and planning to announce the game in February. They also mentioned that the game will be scheduled in late 2008 and according to Cliffy, the game looks awesome and will support 4 co-op.
Thanks for the info. 4 player co-op in Gears = SICK. I just hope they don't rush it and polish it as much as possible. CliifyB and Epic FTW!
Unless they have had the sequel cooking for a while already, I don't see Gears 2 coming out 2008.
It would be great though if it did
Wow if gears 2 comes out next year it will easily be the top most hyped game of the year. Gears of War is amazing.
Do they have the manpower to pump out the game every two years? I dunno, it would be very impressive if they did.
Man that surfer girl sure knows alot doesn't she ; ] P.S. I think surfer girl is The round peg seeing as every tip for surfer girl is from round peg. Just throwin that out there....
I cant believe crap like this gets aprooved. What is the source? Some uknown person that goes by name "Surfer girl".
Come on peole.
Well, she has gotten multiple things correct.
Somebody ask her if its confirmed to be made or not
I BADLY NEED TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS AFTER THE SECRET BLOOD MESSAGES CLIFFHANGER
Desmond and altairs minds will leak further like they started to in the end of the first game; and desmond/altair will go on a quest in the MODERN world to stop the MODERN templars controlling the world.
Another assassin from japan.
Stupidest interview ever!
You get bubbles for being a pats fan
Count on this !!!!
And I can't wait to hear more !!!!
New CAPCOM IP game, maybe exclusive to 360 be good to find out !!
2 years to make a AAA game like gears? I'd be surprised, but then again they know their engine a lot better now so I guess it can happen.
Thier engine is complete, they have worked with the 360 and see what they have gotten out of it. Plus, I hope they do have 4 player co-op, more mutiplayer modes, more weapons and maybe a Halo like party system, not the crap we saw in Gears of War 1.
I actually dont like the party systems for me the fun in gears of war multiplayer was playing against friends slaughtering them.
gears of war 3? what about part 2
This surfer girl makes the most obvious stupid predictions on the industry.
And people bash it when the news isn't in there favor. But when it is they love this man they call surfer girl. Bunch of turncoats. (and yes i just went 18th century on y'all)
Yep. Gears 2 Fall/Winter of 2008. A friend of mine is a manager at a GameStop store & he verified that in August. Can't wait !
so managers from GameStop set Epics timelines now huh?
nice hope they make it good
Oh please yes!!! More GEARS!!!! :D
If they make it as good as GEARS 1, I will be really happy.
I completely agree with you
projects from sooooo many development house's "she" would have to be someone VERY big within the industry, if that was the case, why waste your time making a pissy blog.
this sh!t isnt news...
The only thing I really want different in the next Gears is a matchmaking system like Halo. It's really dumb having to put up with the ancient player-server-oriented system and major host advantage, plus everyone teams up anyway, it's just more work, and bad news for whoever joins the game and isn't part of the team.
..i want some new weapons, new levels, new modes(a one shot kill mode warzone style would rock) less/no bugs, matchmaking/party system and a difficulty harder than insane for the single player
I find this Surfer Girl thing laughable at best hell just reading the "question" people ask makes you wonder if we are back at greece and people think she is an oracle or some sh!t cuz many of those question I guarantee you that even the devs don't know much worse her and yet again she is using educated guesses as the "ZOMG I knowz the sectretz"
Despite what any console maker says (the PS2 was supposed to last 10 years too), we'll see new console talk around 2010. If I were MS, I would hold off on Gears 3 until the Xbox 3 comes out.
why would they hold it? there are plenty of games that have 3 iterations on a single console generation...
there is no reason to think that the Xbox 360 wont have a 10 year lifespan, it has the power, it has the extensibility and it has the market...
Well we know that at least 2 sequels are coming, so rest easy because they will definitely be bigger and better than the original...
I wonder which engine they'll use for Gears 2... UE3 or UE4? Will they even show UE4 in 2008?
Its very likely based on an improved version of UE3 if its coming anywhere from 2008 to 2009.
Seems like 'anything' Surfer Girl says gets approved here... :|
"Wii60"..... watch my bubbles go for dat one.
1. F*ck surfer boy.
2. Gears 2 is going to own all games and destroy ps3 fanboys everywhere.
3. I hope Gears 3 is on Xbox 720 and uses UE4.
Gears in 2008, I think there should be more personality action from the enemy, Jumping out the windows pushing you back when you get to close being able to use your environment more. For example, picking up a brick to throw to divert the enemy away from you or a pinned down soldier. Being able to choose different paths in th game that can change the difficulty of the game for example, theres three paths in level two which either takes yo around the heavy action or puts you right into the heavy action.
you know something...I think that after having stared at the Galaxy Map in Mass for hours on end, drooling over the immense amount of detail, depth and development, and seeing how far gaming has gone and how far gaming can tkae us...
i'm not really in all THAT a rush.
i'm just flabergasted at the promising future we gamers have to look forward to, but current games are more perfect than most of us really think.
Gears 2 is a really good title to look forward to but i dont think it will be much of an improvement to make it as good as gears 1 was. Considering EPIC used like 90%+ of the 360 power i cant see how much they can add. Maybe just make online better is probably only thing they can do. Now gears 3 might be something to really look forward to since they most likely will use the UE4 for it, but definetly not on gears 2.
Gears so much especially online with my freind and owning other 12 year olds.
Oh and xbox360 fanboys plese don't act like this is the second coming like you do with halo3.
Theer are only 3 good games which one is AAA guranteed for the xbox360: Halo wars,alan wake, ninja gaiden
With gears 2 you only add 1 more killer app. It would take a bioshock 2, mass effect 2 and too human turning out good for the xbox360 to reach the level of the PS3's software titles. On top of that the devs over at 2k refuse to rule out a ps3 version of bioshock.
I smell a "lost planet".
Those titles on top are the most promising and are indeed the backbone of the PS3 in 2008.
