Nelson’s just announced that tonight’s planned Gears of War announcement for the Video Game Awards has been canceled.
“I wanted to share this with you and let you know that while these are never easy decisions, we can tell you that what we have to share for the franchise in 2011 will definitely be worth the wait and we look forward to working with our partner at Spike on sharing this world premier news when it is ready,” said the Major in a blog on his site.
A couple of weeks back, Epic’s Cliff Bleszinski teased a Gears-related reveal for tonight’s event, where he added it was “not what you’re expecting.”
Gears for Kinect had also been rumoured for tonight.
But it will happen no more. At least not tonight.
Gears of War 3 launches next year for Xbox 360.
