Design Director at Epic Games, Cliff Bleszinski, said that when they released "Gears of War" three years ago, they set out to tell the world an unforgettable story of bravery and sacrifice in the face of insurmountable odds, and that a year from now, players will get the chance to experience the final chapter in the story of Marcus Fenix and his companions in Delta Squad. He also said that this is definitely the biggest and most dramatic chapter yet in the Gears of War saga, and that they can't wait to deliver it.
"Gears of War 3" is going to be developed by acclaimed studio Epic Games and it will be released exclusively for the Xbox 360 video game console from Microsoft. "Gears of War" will plunge the player into a harrowing tale of hope, survival and brotherhood that will conclude the current story-line for "Gears of War". Time is running out for Marcus and his comrades as they fight to save the human race from the jaws of extinction.

The award-winning video games sold more than twenty million copies around the world. They are also some of the most popular games ever played on the Xbox LIVE Service, due to the riveting multiplayer action.
