Epic denies Gears 2 report

Says it wasn't confirmed at GDC.

Epic Games has poured cold water on reports that Gears of War 2 was quietly confirmed at the Game Developers Conference last week.

Designer Cliff Bleszinski gave a presentation at GDC, during which he reportedly confirmed that Epic does "intend to do a sequel".

But it sounds like our old friend Internet Reports was getting a bit ahead of himself, because Epic veepee Mark Rein soon popped up on the game's official forum to deny it. "Cliff didn't confirm anything of the sort," he wrote.

In other words, you'll have to wait a bit longer for official confirmation of the inevitable sequel. Epic has previously said that it hopes the game will develop into a lucrative series.

Indeed, Rein himself has helped the speculation along, responding cryptically to claims that the game will develop into a trilogy. "Gears is a trilogy? If we can keep making quality games that fans obviously want then why would we have to stop at three?" he asked his own forum last November.

One thing we did learn about Gears last week was that it's still an industry darling, having bagged three Game Developers Choice Awards including Best Game.
