Gears of War 3 beta planned for spring 2011

As announced just a few days ago, all pre-orderers of Bulletstorm‘s Epic Edition for Xbox 360 will be getting into the Gears of War 3 beta, guaranteed. However, any information regarding said beta was left oblivious at the time, something that’s changed since the announcement. During an interview with Epic Games president and co-founder Mike Capps, Gears fans were given a small window as to when the Gear of War 3 beta might be made available.

“We’ve been saying spring,” said Capps. “My guess is it will be sometime around April or so. It’s going to be early enough so it really impacts Gears [of War 3‘s] development, but we want to make sure everyone has the chance to play Bulletstorm before they jump right into the beta.”

With People Can Fly’s title releasing in late February, an April-bound beta would be more than appropriate given the fact that Gears of War 3 was to initially be released during that time.
