In the wake of Gears of War 3’s approval by German authorities, Microsoft is investigating the release of the first two games.

According to Joystiq, German Microsoft representatives at gamescom said the company is “looking into it”.

Additionally, Epic Games president Mike Capps, speaking at GDC, said he believed Microsoft is investigating possibility of releasing gears of War 1 and 2 in Germany, commenting that he’d love for that to happen in the heels of the third game’s unexpected approval.

“We were so surprised that Gears of War 3 was rated here that we really didn’t have an action plan [for gamescom],” Capps said.

“I’m very happy that the marketing team at Microsoft was able to put together a booth presence for us at gamescom with a couple weeks notice.”
