No Gears of War 2 Demo Planned According to Epic

gears of war 2

While this may not come as a complete shock to most folks, alas, the news is slightly grim for those who want to try out Gears of War 2 before laying down their hard earned cash on a cold, unfeeling retail counter.

According to Tanya Jessen, the associate producer of the game, Epic is not planning on releasing a demo for the highly anticipated sequel to the fan favorite Gears of War. Well, at least in ADVANCE of the title’s November release – what they plan on doing after the release is unknown except to psychics, ghost-whisperers and Cliffy himself.

Tanya had this to say about the demo:

“[There are] no plans for a demo. 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. Our focus is always on putting out the best possible game we can. Whenever you do a demo, you have to basically ship a whole separate product. As far as our plans after we ship, I can’t really speak to that.”

Despite gamers not being able to get an idea of what to expect from the full title, I am sure this will still sell very well – because you have to remember that the original did not have a demo released beforehand and it went on to sell over 3 million copies anyway. So demo or no demo, it won’t make a bit of difference either way – gamers want it, therefore they will buy it.

they just make it like the last one: hype the game to heaven and don’t let people test it. that’s how they stole 65 bucks from me. gears of war simply sucked for me, but at the time i played it, it was already too late. money spent. no return possible. no try before you buy. anyone wondering why there’s piracy? THEY are the pirates.
