Gears novelist writing Gears of War 3

Karen Traviss also doing two more books.

Epic Games has revealed that Gears of War novelist Karen Traviss is now writing the story for Gears of War 3, along with two more novels.

"We've always carefully integrated the books and the games, but now that Karen's writing the game as well, the storyline is even more tightly woven," said Epic exec producer Rod Fergusson in an announcement everyone missed on Tuesday (thanks Kotaku).

"All the characters have a rich and troubled history, and the events between the second and third games plunge them into an even more desperate struggle to survive. The fourth book is essential reading for all Gearheads before they dive into the final game of the trilogy."

Traviss has previously written the Gears of War novels Aspho Fields and Jacinto's Remnant.

Gears of War 3 was announced this week and is due out on 8th April 2011 in Europe.

This guy needs to calm down.
