New bundle confirmed. Does not involve Gears of War 3.
Microsoft and Epic Games are preparing a new Gears of War bundle for Xbox 360 next year.
A listing for something called Gears of War Ultimate appeared on GameStop's website yesterday. No details about the product are currently listed, except that it's priced at $29.99 and has a release date of Feb. 15, 2011.
Microsoft confirmed to IGN that the GameStop listing is legit, but would not say when we can expect to hear more.
"We can confirm a forthcoming bundle SKU involving the Gears franchise, though this may not be the final SKU name," a representative said. "There are no specifics available at this time, except to say it will not involve Gears of War 3 or the beta."
This bundle is likely a package containing Gears of War 1 and 2 with the additional downloadable content included. However, this may also involve the rumored Gears of War Kinect project that was originally supposed to debut at the Spike TV Video Game Awards show last month.
We'll keep you updated when we learn more.
