Epic news promised

But what could it be?

On the forums for the upcoming Xbox 360 shooter Gears of War, Epic boss Mark Rein has tantalisingly promised "big news" next week. We've known for some time that Gears of War is nearing completion, and speculation is rife that Epic or publishing partner Microsoft will give a firm date soon.

That said, it sounds like this big news won't be a date, Rein responding to chatter of such with "Sounds like maybe the announcement that is going to be made isn't what you think it is." What could it be? Who knows, though we're already aware that Epic has Unreal Tournament 2007 in the works, so perhaps something pertaining to this? Or could it be Unreal 4... oh they are teases. We'll keep our noses to the ground.
