Gears of War 3 leaderboards point to unreleased maps

A couple of entries on the Gears of War 3 leaderboards give a tantalising glimpse of what might have been - or of what's to come.

Joystiq noted leaderboards for three maps not seen in the game's multiplayer - Azura, Blood Drive and Rustlung - and even snapped a few screenies to prove it.

Apparently these names conjure delightful images in the minds of those steeped in the Gears of War canon. They may refer to test levels never intended to surface in the finished product, or to upcoming content - the latter seems more likely given Epic's long polishing period.

Gears of War 3 is an Xbox 360 exclusive out now, to the great delight of our editor, who exclaimed his way through the first ten minutes for your unceasing entertainment.
