The rumor mill forges onward. Lester “Mighty Rasta” Speight, the voice of Gears Of War’s Cole Train, let slip a comment that betrayed a potential ship date for Gears Of War 2. The suggested date was November 16, which is in line with earlier analysis (speculation) that suggested the game would ship sometime within the month of November.
CrunchGear speculates that TriForce might be planning the November 16 ship date in preparation for a Black Friday release. Of course, it’s still only speculation at this point, but this simply gives us an inkling of how massive Gears Of War 2 could be, given the amount of buzz that’s flying around the intertubes.
DS and Wii Fanboy’s David Hinkle was at the panel to witness the football player-turned-actor’s Q+A session, and hopes to further press Mr. Rasta to discover the accuracy of his claims. Given that it falls in the game’s suggested November release window, we wouldn’t be surprised if Speight’s date was legit.
