The much anticipated third instalment of 3rd person shooter game Gears of War 3 for the Xbox 360 has had its April 2011 release date pushed back to Autumn 2011 (Q3).
Gears of War 3 was originally set for release this April 2011 (8/4/2011) and the reason for the delay has been asserted by Epic Games, the developer of the popular series, as a business decision and not a game quality issue. Microsoft has stated in previous releases that “Gears of War 3 promises to be the biggest entertainment launch of 2011“.
The game will feature new weapons and 3 new playable female characters and new game modes.
