Rod Fergusson has said over Twitter fans shouldn’t expect more DLC for Gears 3. “With the announce of the new Gears game, I can confirm that there’s no more DLC for Gears 3,” he said. “But we’re still having Gears Weekends and community events and playlists – lots of fun still to come.” The last DLC pack for Gears 3 was released in March and Epic said at the time it would be last pack released for the game unless “players are dying for it and they want it.” Guess not. The next Gears game will be revealed at the MS Press Event at E3 on Monday.

“[Gears of War 3 is] a great game, the biggest exclusive by far, but it is far from the best selling 360 game. It’s also a hard core game, and #3 in the series, so not much of a system seller (the hard core already had 360s and bought Gears 1 and 2). So I don’t buy into the argument it helps [Microsoft] compete.”
