Did Epic Games plan to release 'Gears of War 3' on the PlayStation 3? A leaked gameplay running on the Sony console makes us think so.
Gears of War has become one of the flagship franchises of the Xbox brand. However, the saga did not always belong to Microsoft . It was in 2014 that the Redmond companies bought the rights to Epic Games for a multimillion-dollar figure. In fact, before that moment there was speculation about the possible arrival of Gears of War to the PlayStation 3 , which never happened. Despite the above, it seems that at Epic Games did not rule out the idea of exploring the Sony platform .
Incredible as it may seem, a gameplay of Gears of was leaked today War 3 running on one Playstation 3. You don't have to clean your eyes, you read that right. PixelButts, alleged hacker and responsible for publishing the material, claims that the demo belongs to a May build 2011 . “As far as I know, I'm the only person with a functional build of this data. I don't know why it exists, I don't know why it was done. All I can do is speculate,” he stated in the YouTube video description.
Obviously, many questions arise after this leak. First off, was Epic Games really working on another version of Gears of War 3 ? According to sources from the portal Kotaku , the North Carolina study conducted several compilations of the title for PS3. However, it is unknown if there were really plans to launch it or were they just experiments with the Unreal Engine 3. Although the graphics engine was compatible with both Xbox 360 As with PlayStation 3, the architecture of both consoles was completely different.
The demo, as you surely could see yourself, has too many technical flaws ; from constant drops in the rate of images per second to problems with three-dimensional models. PixelButts assures that the build comes from a security breach that Epic Games suffered during 2011, a situation that also affected to other video game companies.
Unfortunately the study has not yet ruled on it , so that any theory that arises from now on will be mere speculation. Of course, no one can deny that see Gears of War 3 running on a PlayStation 3 is too surreal.
