So that “kick ass news” he promised yesterday? Turns out it was just the announcement of cameos of Marcus and Dom from Gears of War in Lost Planet 2.

But hold the phone, kiddlewinks.

Cliff Bleszinski is promising some “megaton face melting news”, which should be coming soon.

Epic’s lead designer said in a tweet:

Yes, that’s the news. [referring to the Gears/LP announce]

I said “kick ass” which I think it is. Keep your eyes open for “megaton face melting news.”

Hot shit, Batman. Watch out for this news “when the weather’s warm“.

So far, Epic hasn’t stated what its next big project is internally since Gears of War 2 released.

Gears of War 3 was previously thought to be coming out in the next generation of consoles, according to Epic president Mike Capps.

He swiftly retracted his comments, saying if Gears 3 comes, it’ll be this gen.

Shadow Complex, based on the Ender’s Game novel written by Orson-Scott Card, was released last year by Epic, but was developed at Chair Entertainment.

Epic also has a project in the works from the company’s Poland-based studio People Can Fly, which is currently only known as Bulletstorm, which will be published by EA.
