Epic wrote two endings for Carmine in case of another Gears of War 3 leak

During gamescom, Epic president Mike Capps said the developer wrote two different endings for Clayton Camine into Gears of War 3 in case the fella’s fate was leaked earlier.

Capps said the firm opted both endings in so “no-one would be able to tell what happens,” and in order to find out, you’ll have to wait to play the game at release.

Earlier this summer, an early build of Gears 3 was leaked on torrent sites, and Epic stated it would ban those who posted spoiler videos of the leak online from playing the game.

Last year, Epic and Microsoft gave fans the chance to decide Clayton Carmine’s fate through XBL Avatar shirts sporting the stance of whether the last Carmine brother should live or die.

Proceeds from the sale of the “Save Carmine” and “Carmine Must Die” virtual goods raised $150,000 for Child’s Play.

Gears of War 3 releases on Xbox 360 September 20.
