Rein on Gears 2: Game Informer article was “a tidbit”
Epic boss Mark Rein has told videogaming247 that the Game Informer Gears of War 2 article that hit the web yesterday is just a “tidbit”, and that the best is very much to come.
“Awesome,” said Rein when asked how excited he was about the title. “I’ve had a chance to read the Game Informer story now and I think when people get a chance to read it they’ll see that [Gears 2 is] really good. And we told the Game Informer guys just a tidbit about the game. We showed them some stuff, obviously, but we’re keeping a lot of information back that will make people go, ‘It’s even better than this.’ As good as they say it is, and they really, really like it, there’s still a lot of story to open up between now and when the game ships in November… I think people will really enjoy this game.”
Rein didn’t say when we were going to see more, however, and expanded on the fact that Gears 2 will definitely not be seen at Comic Con in New York later this month, putting the fact the event issued a press release saying the game was going to appear at the show down to crossed wired.
“I’d say [Comic Con was] over zealous,” he said. “Mike Capps, who’s our president, and Joshua Ortega, who’s the writer on Gears 2, will be on a panel there together, so I’m sure they’ll be talking about things to do with the process around making Gear 2. I think that’s probably where it got confusing. We’re not demoing anything, but we’ll still have a chance to talk about the game.”
