While the first Gears of War saw a release on the PC platform nearly a year after its debut on Xbox 360, history will not repeat with the sequel. Speaking in a recent interview, Epic Games design director Cliff Bleszinski dropped word that Gears 2 will not be heading to the PC in the future.
Gears of War is a great franchise first and foremost for Xbox 360, and therefore we’re focusing on that platform for Gears of War 2. We’ve decided we’re not going to do a PC version this time around.
Tsk tsk. If you recall, stuttering issues plagued the launch of the original. Although later rectified with a patch, this issue didn’t exactly build up Epic’s rep amongst PC gamers. If they aren’t going to take the time to release a proper PC port, we can’t imagine too many will be upset by this bit of news.
