Gears of War 2 splash page hints at release date?

We skipped this last night because we thought it was so sketchy, but we may as well do it. This Gears of War 2 splash page shows a set of dog tags emblazoned with the number 033-116-117-126-071. Apparently, this translates as “ESC Nov 9” when translated from Octal to ASCII.

The internet has now decided that Gears of War 2 is releasing on November 9. And that’s that. Hopefully we’ll know more after Microsoft’s E3 press conference on Monday.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. For more information, go here.
