and Epic Games
are preparing a new Gears of War bundle for Xbox 360 next year.
A listing for something called Gears of War Ultimate appeared on GameStop's website
yesterday. No details about the product are currently listed, except that it's priced at $29.99 and has a release date of Feb. 15, 2011.
Microsoft confirmed to IGN that the GameStop listing is legit, but would not say when we can expect to hear more details. This bundle will not involve Gears of War 3
, set for release in late 2011, or the multiplayer beta.
"We can confirm a forthcoming bundle SKU involving the Gears franchise, though this may not be the final SKU name," a representative said. "There are no specifics available at this time, except to say it will not involve Gears of War 3 or the beta."
This bundle is likely a package containing Gears of War 1 and 2 with the additional downloadable content included. However, this may also involve the rumored Gears of War Kinect project that was originally supposed to debut
at the Spike TV Video Game Awards show last month.
