When playing a game, the goal is to win, but it is the goal that is important, not the winning

I'm not sure exactly when this changed on the FFG site, but I noticed that the Gears of War boardgame is now listed as "Q4 2009", as opposed to the spring release suggested last year.

Has there really been NO glimpses of this at all? I'd love to know if it's a Descent/Doom style game, or a whole 'nother animal altogether. I'm kind of hoping for the latter... taking cover, picking your shots, not leaving a downed soldier behind...

Would be cool to hear a bit of how they're doing this in bg form.

Although I'm hoping for more... I have feeling this will end up as a re-skinned version of DOOM.. Maybe with some sort of cover system added.. I'm keeping my eyes open for this but I don't have a great feeling about it, particularly so that FFG are just releasing NO information about it other than that it's coming...

Does anyone know any more?
Does anyone from FFG post on these boards like the guy from Flying Frog does?


"Play on"

Nope. No information. Not even a box mock-up.

The expected release date was changed today to "2010".
I guess it won't be ready for Q4 2009
But maybe it's an indication the game was not cancelled.

As of the 14th March (2011!!!) we have a new update...sort of. it turns out that at the recent Penny arcade Expo FFG had a poster up advertising GOW. The spokesperson said they are not ready to announce anything yet but here's hoping.
