Though design director Cliff Bleszinski announced that Gears of War 3 would be released on April 11th, 2011 back in April 2010, Epic Games executive producer Rod Fergusson has stated that the third and final installment in the current Gears of War story-arch has been delayed by at least 5 months.

Though Fergusson states that the game was on track to be “the most polished Gears of War game ever” when it was going to be released in April, the additional few months will allow the developers to polish the game even further. Though a specific date was not mentioned, the game is now set for a release during the Fall season. Microsoft and Epic Games have stated that with this delay, Gears of War 3 has become the most prominent title for the 2011 holiday season.
