Gears of War in October?

Seems to be wishful thinking.

Gears of War may be out by the end of the year - that's the plan anyway - but there were strong suggestions this weekend that it might turn up sooner than expected.

That's because on Friday the official Xbox.com page for the game briefly listed an October 2nd date, reflecting the date retailer EBgames.com has been using for a while.

But don't get too excited, because Microsoft's not so sure. "There's no official date set yet," US reps said on Friday, which suggests a clerical error rather than an early hint.

It was the same story when we spoke to Microsoft UK this morning. "I'm not aware of them announcing any release date," a spokesperson said, promising to get back to us.

"We haven't announced anything for the UK and Europe," she added.
