Epic’s Mark Rein’s confirmed that Gears of War 2 won’t be shown by Microsoft at Games Convention next week.

“Microsoft doesn’t show Gears 2 at Leipzig because they don’t sell the game in Germany,” Rein told VG247 this morning.

Gears of War isn’t sold in Germany because of restrictions on violence in games in the country.

The action sequel was the Microsoft keynote headliner at E3. Shame it won’t be at GC: we wanted to play it.
