    In an interview to one of the gaming site Mike Capps said “I think everybody knows we had some multiplayer stability issues with Gears 2 multiplayer out of the box,”.

    “While we fixed those later, the opportunity to be really, really sure that our new dedicated server infrastructure is going to be operational on day one with Gears 3 was totally worth the time to make the beta.”

    He further added “We’ve been saying spring … my guess is it will be sometime around April or so. It’s going to be early enough so it really impacts Gears development, but we want to make sure everyone has the chance to play Bulletstorm before they jump right into the beta.
