Since Gears of War 2
's GDC announcement
we've known that the second Emergence Day would come sometime this November, but for obsessive fanboys a general thirty day release window isn't good enough. We need a specific date. That's why when we heard that Mighty Rasta, the voice actor for GoW2
's Augustus Cole, hinted about the game's release date
recently, our inner fanboy got a tad bit excited.
As part of the TriForce panel at Wizard World
, Rasta and crew chatted about Gears 2
and some really special Gears replicas
. Then someone asked about Gears of War 2
's release date, the TriForce crew refused to comment but Mr. Rasta suggested asking the release date question on November 16th. A not so subtle hint that (mathematically) has a 25% chance at being correct even if Rasta knows nothing about the game's official release. Though, the release would be a odd seeing that November 16th falls on a Sunday which isn't traditionally a weekday that sees video game releases. Ahhh heck, we're optimists here and are sticking by Rasta's release date hint. November 16th here we come!
