No Demo for Gears of War 2

No Demo for Gears of War 2

The launch of Gears of War 2 will not be preceded by a demo, Epic Games confirmed.

"[There are] no plans for a demo," associate producer Tanya Jessen told Shacknews. "The reason being that it's been such a fast turnaround. A two year production cycle, for a game of this caliber, is really short."

The follow-up to the Xbox 360 hit is due out this November. Game conference attendees have seen the Unreal Engine enhanced, with more units onscreen, and the sequel is likely to continue with the third-person tactical touches that separated the original game from similar titles.

The first Gears of War, also demo-less, sold more than three million copies in ten weeks. A PC version was released in November 2007.

Jessen did not rule out the possibility that a demo may be released after the game launches.

Hey, when you've got brand strength, ride it.

Exactly. Why waste valuable resources and time trying to piece together a demo when people can just go and play the first game anyway?

Not like a demo is needed but it would still be nice. Looks like i will have to wait for the release date to get my hands on it.
