”The reaction to Gears of War has been better-than-outstanding. Were extremely happy that everyone seems to love the game! More Gears of War multiplayer content and functionality is on the way.
It has become pretty clear to us all that Gears of War will undoubtedly be the biggest selling game in Epics 15-year history. With a game that has such a wide appeal it is also clear to me that were touching a lot console gamers who have never experienced what it is like to buy a game made by Epic Games.
Console customers, for the most part, are used to buying a game and that being, pretty much, the end of what they can expect for that game. Thats not how Epic Games works. We have a long-term history of supporting our games well after release. Since the very first Unreal Tournament game we have had a track record of excellent post-release support.
Were going to support Gears of War and were going to make improvements and enhancements for it.
Right now we dont have an exact release plan for this but were absolutely listening to you, our customers. Keep posting in this forum. Let us know if you find any problems. Let us know what you love and what you dont love about the game. Well do out best to keep you happy playing Gears of War for years to come!
Every opinion counts. All we ask in return is that you be courteous with each other and keep on topic.”
