Gears of War 3 Release Date

Along with the beta details released this week, Gears of War 3 has received its official launch date. The game will hit the shelves on September 20th, 2011.

So, about seven months away, which isn't too long in the grand scheme of things.

Official details along with some other announcements on Major Nelson's site here.

Update: The official Gears of War site now has the announcement here. They also mention some of the key features of the game, including 5 New Maps.

Wait, what? Are you telling me the retail game will only ship with 5 Multiplayer Maps? And of course they should be new, do they expect us to port maps from the previous two games? This is a whole new retail game!

That statement doesn't fit well with me, and the inevitable map pack milkage it foreshadows.
