Gears of War 3 Announced on Dashboard - Oops

By Al Zamora

April 9, 2010

Looks like Cliffy B. was supposed to announce Gear of War 3 on the Late Night with Jimmy Fallon show last night and to coincide with the big reveal announcement Microsoft had it going up on the dashboard as well. Except Cliffy B. got bumped for Justin Bieber and the announcement never happened, but likes like MS forgot to change their date on the dashboard reveal. Last night a message popped up on everyone’s dashboard with the official Gears logo and a message that read “The epic story concludes April 2011”.

Cliffy B. is scheduled to make his appearance this Monday instead but the thunder has been taken from his special announcement it seems. We all know that he will be revealing the new Gears of War 3 title and probably showing some kind of teaser. Curious if he will mention the goof up or just play it off like nothing happened?

Looks like everyone will have to wait a full year for their next installment of Gears of War, I can wait, can you?
