The "big announcement" for Gears of War

updated 10:15 am EDT, Thu August 3, 2006

Gears of War release date

Microsoft has revealed the promised "big announcement" for Gears of War this week, which turns out to be a release date: November 12th, 2006 in North America. A fourth-quarter release was already expected. This will probably disappoint some fans, because a viral marketing campaign on Xbox Live (featuring messages from characters in the game) seemed to be elaborate enough that there was hope of a demo or possibly a contest. The one truly new piece of information is that there will be two editions of the game: a standard edition for $60 US, and a "collector's" edition for $70, which will include an art book and a making-of DVD, sealed together with the game in a metal box. Update: Eurogamer is saying that the UK date will be November 17th.
