Who called it?!? Who called prequel?!? That’s right!. Okay, fine. I probably wasn’t the only one, but I sure as heck got it right on the Emergence Day aspect. Either way, March 19th, 2013 is now the release date of the upcoming installment in the Gears of War franchise, subtitled Judgement. Under development in cooperation with both Epic Games and People Can Fly, Judgement brings us right back to post-Emergence Day Sera, following Kilo Squad (led by Damon Baird and Augustus Cole), “as they defy orders and attempt to the city of Halvo Bay from destruction at the hands of the Locust onslaught”.

Additionally, the release date announcement included information about a new multiplayer mode called OverRun, which (dare I say it?) reminds me a bit of the Generator Defense multiplayer in Halo: Reach, as well as Island, a battleground on an archipelago of islands just off the coast of Halvo Bay that also serves as a supply and refueling depot for the COG along the coast (seriously, people? Gears of War Island? Halo 4 Infinity multiplayer? Am I the only one?!?). Anyway, Gears of War: Judgement is scheduled to release on March 19, 2013 for $59.99 USD/CAD. No news on Limited Editions yet.
