The original Gears of War came and conquered in November 2006, becoming the fastest selling Xbox 360 game in the process back then, handily crushing all competition that dared step in its way. So a sequel to the game was a given since day one. And even sooner according to Microsoft’s Jeff Bell, who said the purpose of the games “Mad World” commercial was to establish Marcus Fenix as the hero of the Gears of War trilogy.
Fast forward about 15 months, and it seems Epic Games is getting ready to unveil the second game in the franchise.
