Gears of War 2’s Rod Fergusson has told VG247 that specifics on upcoming DLC for the game will depend on the community’s reaction to the Snowblind map pack, released yesterday.

“The big focus is on Snowblind, which is out Tuesday, and we’ll see how that’s received, along with the title update,” said the title’s executive producer, speaking at GDC.

“I’ve been checking in on the forums late at night to see how people are responding at it seems to be pretty positive.”

Snowblind, the second premium DLC pack for Gears of War 2, added four new maps to the game yesterday for 800 MS Points.

It was rumoured before GDC that a third pack, supposedly titled Dark Corners, would launch in April.

Doesn’t look like it.
