Microsoft Spills the Beans on “Gears of War 3”

So last night Cliff Bleszinski was supposed to unveil a “New Project” on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon”.  Unfortunately, Cliffy B was bumped at the last minute so that Justin Bieber could play the drums with Questlove from “The Roots”:  Meanwhile, Bleszinski’s appearance was delayed to Monday night…

Apparently, nobody told the guys at Microsoft.  Early this morning, Xbox Spotlight featured an interesting ad:

So now we know what we’ve all assumed until now.  “Gears of War 3” will be released in April, 2011.  Bleszinski will still be on “Late Night” on Monday night.  We may know about the game now, but presumably the guys at Epic Games had a flashier debut in mind:  Presumably, we will actually get to see the game.

Meanwhile, since the postponement rumors have sprung up about changes and new features in the game.  According to Edge, there will be a focus making covered positions a little less secure this time around: on the one hand, there will be a new tentacled enemies that can reach behind cover and attack players.  On the other, players will have access to a new type of grenade that burrows underground to hit entrenched enemies.  Also, apparently the game will take place in “summer”, so the grey and brown color scheme of the first two games may get an infusion of color.
