Gears Of War 3 Delayed, Could We See First Non-Bungie Halo? "So Gear of War 3 has been delayed by six months, crushing my hopes and dreams of playing as Cole Train over the summer. The reason? All because of marketing, and being able to have a big name title at the very end of the year. For a lot of gamers this is pretty awful news, since Microsoft has yet to announce any other big-name title for the end of 2011. But let us assume that Microsoft enjoys money, and let us presume they're not ready to give up on the Xbox quite yet. They've spent a lot of time and money in making Live more worthwhile (to some), and third party sales on the system will definitely help a little bit. If their reason for delaying such a big name title a few months is for marketing purposes, I think it's pretty safe to assume they've got something else up their sleeve. So what's up Microsoft's sleeve?

That would be stupid Halo:reach is just released and already a new halo?
Not that i wouldn't buy it but a lot of people wouldn't.

I don't think its a new halo, rather a new exclusive

mephman3761d ago

Well, Microsoft said they'd be releasing one Halo game a year. So the fact Halo: Reach just came out doesn't really mean anything.

Raikiri3761d ago

I really doubt its a halo

Mac is OK3761d ago (Edited 3761d ago )

If they had a new Halo they wouldn't have moved GoW3, they would've just released Halo in September as they always do. I think they moved Gears because they realized they didn't have anything bigger than that for september.

palaeomerus3761d ago

No, MS just said that they'd probably release Halo games more often than once every three years from now on. They DIDN'T say one Halo a year.

dangert123761d ago (Edited 3761d ago )

there wont be a new one this soon 343 have been brought in what this year? wont be of reach quality thats 4 sure

@mephman yeah i know but 343 were part in charge if theyy hired some to do it that dev team couldt have had very long

mephman3761d ago

It doesn't necessarily have to be from 343. I mean, Bungie didn't make Halo Wars.

midgard2293761d ago

ya dont notice but its been 3 yrs str8 getting a new halo. first halo 3, then a year break. then halo wars, yr after odst, this year reach. next halo grab. Finish the fight again!, this time! for real!

games fun, but an exclusive loses its beauty when its released every year like a COD. not that wars was a real halo game, but still, halo's name was on it

Well you'r mind is jammed since you think its a new Halo game.
Could be another game or it could be none.

All these articles and fuss about delaying a game?
How about other games that got delayed?
I never knew Gears and Halo had so strong impact on the industry.

Well I actually know :p

Every year I read articles about how MS dos not have any game the next year,But guess what?
This years are:Alan wake,Mass effect,Halo reach, upcoming Fable 3,Sniper Ghost warrior,Splinter cell. Last year was the same article and look what we got. I bought everyone of them. And I have a Ps3 And enjoy the exclusive there too.My brother bought Move and I enjoyed it, cant wait for Kinect. This is just Lame

JDouglasGU3761d ago

it could easily be some kind of halo product in the first half of 2011, too soon to tell either way. halo wars mentioned above is a good point, and MS definitely isn't above milking their key franchise. on the other hand, gears was probably delayed because the new 343 halo is behind schedule.

ShawnCollier3761d ago

Would be an interesting turn of events, to say the least.

jay23761d ago (Edited 3761d ago )

I said it before over the weekemd, and I'll say it again, they don't have any first party titles for Santa to deliver.

Foxgod3761d ago (Edited 3761d ago )

Halo 5 should be a launch title for the xbox next.
That would create an explosion of launch sales of xbox's.

Next year the 360 will have plenty of exclusives, it doesnt matter if they are third party or first party, what matters is that they are exclusive.

Maybe next year we will also get to see what Peter Jacksons studio is currently developing for MS.

Raikiri3761d ago (Edited 3761d ago )

Halo 4 should be a launch title for the xbox 720.


@foxgod below

yeah but it won't be CALLED halo 5... DUH!

Foxgod3761d ago (Edited 3761d ago )

Well, i at least have to admit that the odds it will be called Halo4, are bigger then the Next Xbox being called the 720.

360 stands for all around, a complete 3d experience.
What would 720 stand for?
Spinning 2 rounds?

Foxgod3761d ago (Edited 3761d ago )

MS said Reach is halo4.
And the next Halo will be 1st party, so its expected to be Halo 5.

dangert123761d ago

Reach is a prequel therefore was no seen as halo 4

thebudgetgamer3761d ago (Edited 3761d ago )

metal gear solid 3 was a prequal.

BlackTar1873761d ago

i just want all the games.
