Gears of War 2 NOT Coming to the PC
Cliff Bleszinski, the creator of Gears of War has also made a comment while speaking to IGN on how Gears of War 2 will be an exclusive on the Xbox 360, and how it will not be ported over to the PC like the original game.
“Gears of War is a great franchise first and foremost for Xbox 360, and therefore we’re focusing on that platform for Gears of War 2. We’ve decided we’re not going to do a PC version this time around.”
Some people around the forums are wondering what made Epic Games to decide just to go with the Xbox 360 and not it’s big brother-the PC. I’ve heard some people even go as far to say that Epic does not believe the game is going to be critically acclaim like its predecessor. We seem to think that Epic has made the decision based off the sales of the first game on the PC, and the lower review scores it received.
It’s actually not that big of a deal in reality. Although, I find it hypocritical to see the VP of Epic, Mark Rein help start the PC Gaming Alliance. For those who are unfamiliar with the alliance, it was announced back at GDC where it’s mission was to save PC gaming. While most of the press that attended their announcement found it almost laughable, the founders of the group seemed to believe in it. But seeing Mark Rein‘s company starting to focus just on consoles now, I’m not sure how much HE truly believes in it.
