If it's true, it's probably the least surprising surprise in a long time. According to the cover shot of the upcoming issue of GamePro magazine on the mag's official Web site, there'll be hot Gears of War 2 info inside.
Epic Games' vice president Mark Rein has already been fuelling rumours that a sequel to the game was in the works. As far back as November 2006, he told readers on the game's official forums that Gears of War was meant to be a trilogy, possibly even more. To quote the man himself: "If we can keep making quality games that fans obviously love...then why would we have to stop at three? I don't see the Metal Gear Solid, Mario, Grand Theft Auto, or Final Fantasy series (among others) stopping at three."
At the beginning of the year, a Gears prequel was announced, although to the disappointment of many gamers, it will be in book form as opposed to a new game. Gears of War: The Pendulum Wars--The Battle of the Aspho Fields is set during the Locust-Human War, and will fill in some of the backstory and flesh out the characters of the game.
