Microsoft sets Gears of War 2 for Summer

Much anticipated sequel sees teaser trailer at press event.


Microsoft had a mostly Japanese lineup at its Xbox 360 Title Preview: Spring 2009 press event today in Tokyo. But one western title was apparently deemed important-enough to close off the event as the company shared a first Japanese teaser trailer for Gears of War 2.

Japanese players can at long last look forward to a release this summer, Microsoft later confirmed.

Although available overseas since last year, the domestic fate of Gears of War 2 was in question until Microsoft VP Don Mattrick confirmed a release in a late December newspaper interview. In contrast, the original Gears of War was released within two months of its overseas counterparts.
