Gears of War: Judgment official launch window revealed by Epic

Last month we heardsome rumorsfrom online retailers speculating on the release date of Gears of War: Judgment, the blockbuster highly-anticipated next entry in Epic Games' famed sci-fi shooter franchise.

Those rumors suggested we'd be seeing the game launch on February 8, 2013 in the UK, however that seems very unlikely now that Epic has announced the game will be debuting in March 2013 in North America. Generally, big-budget AAA shooters tend to launch in NA first as that is where they are most popular.

Can't wait until March 2013 for more Gears of War? Too bad. But in the mean time you can check out all our Gears of War: Judgement coverage, or just listen to the Cole Train Rap a few thousand additional times, because you're going to be getting a whole lot of that kind of thing come next Spring.
