Epic Games president Mike Capps spoke at GDC Europe today
, reiterating his surprise that Gears of War 3 received an "18" rating
from the German USK
, making it the first Gears
not to be indexed
in the region.
"We were so surprised that Gears of War 3
was rated here that we really didn't have an action plan," said Capps. "I'm very happy that the marketing team at Microsoft was able to put together a booth presence for us at Gamescom
with a couple weeks notice. I've never even met them, cause we've never sold anything [Gears of War
] in Germany before."
Capps said he thinks Microsoft is looking into getting the first two installments of the franchise released. He'd "love" to see that, especially if the company does a trilogy compilation and that passes the board.
