Gears of War VGA announcement curbstomped

In late November Epic Games’ Cliff Bleszinski promised that a Gear of War-related reveal would arrive during tonight’s Video Game Awards show. It won’t.

According to Xbox Live programming director Larry ‘Major Nelson’ Hryb, the Gears of War announcement has been postponed to 2011. Hryb says when the reveal finally does arrive, it will be through Spike TV (the network airing the VGAs), and will be “worth the wait.”

Some are speculating that the announcement has to do with a Kinect Gears of War entry, which would certainly fit the “it’s not what you’re expecting” mold. However, now we’ll have to wait until next year to find out. Bummer.

Speaking of the VGAs. TVGB will have a show wrap-up for you later this evening, complete with every ounce of information dropping from Neil Patrick Harris’ mouth. Look for it!
