GDC 2009: RUMOR: Gears of War 2 Single Player DLC on the Way

Posted in GDC 2009, Xbox 360 with tags , , , , , , , , on March 25, 2009 by Jonathan Cullen


Gears of War 2 ended on an anti-climatic ending until the end of the credits when… well, we wont say as it’s really big but it did still leave a lot of gamers pissed as to what would happen next for Gears 3. But hold the phone folks, maybe we dont have to wait for Gears 3 to get our answer, we may get it in the form of our lovely friend known as Downloadable Content.

According to a forum thread on the Epic Games website, now taken down, a listing has come up on the Japanese Xbox Live Marketplace website on where it shows a listing for DLC for Gears 2, known only as Dark Corners.

Okay, this could still be downloadable content for the multiplayer of the game but Episodic Content has been rumored for Gears 2 for a while now, and some pretty big announcements are due this week at GDC concerning Gears 2, most probably from GTTV and Geoff Keighley where he hinted at some pretty big announcements at GDC for GameTrailers TV this week.

We would post such proof of this but like we said above, the said thread has been deleted from Epic Games forums, and it seems that other sites arent carrying the story. We’d try and grab a screen ourselves but we cant read Japanese so oh well.

Still, we should know what Dark Corners is by the end of the week.

Gears of War 2 was, timingly enough, announced this time last year at the end of John Schappert’s keynote addrees at GDC 2008 in February 2008. It also had Cliff Bletzinski of Epic Games come out and scare everyone with a big chainsaw Lancer.

Gears of War 2hasn’t been out the door long, it’s already sold 3 million copies worldwide and even yet, it seems pre dev for the sequal is underway.

According to EGM’s Quaterman, Gears of War 3 is in development already by Epic Games for the Xbox 360 (and not for the PLAYSTATION 3 like a couple hoped for). Already, it’s been said there will be a couple of tweaks for the gameplay engine and there will be infact a massive 5 player co-op experience, be it a improved verison of either Horde or an entire new campaign altogether remains to be seen.
