Rein unsure of Gears 2 Comic Con reveal

He's not heard anything.

Epic boss Mark Rein has suggested that those going to the New York Comic Con later this month will not see Gears of War 2 after all.

"I'm not aware that we're showing anything there," Rein told videogaming247.

This contradicts a press release advertising the event which claimed Epic big-shot Mike Capps would be offering a glimpse into the hotly anticipated sequel during a games summit speech.

Elsewhere on Epic watch, tech boffin Tim Sweeney revealed the unsurprising news that Gears of War 2 will have better lighting and physics. Apparently it'll also handle more networked players and feature enhanced vehicle interaction.

The animation will also be better, according to a soon to be published interview with Next-Gen, and there are some fresh features to be announced.

However, most of this he talked about on-stage at GDC back in February, while showing some impressive tech videos to demonstrate the Unreal Engine 3 improvements.

Meanwhile, Cliff Bleszinski moves one step closer to appearing in a L'Oreal advert.
