Gears of War PC Goes Unplayable
PC gamers eager to play Epic's Gears of War will have to wait for the time being. Something went wrong with the game and its current status reads “unplayable”.
January 30, 2009
Epic Games programmer Joe Graf stated on the Epic forum:
"Yes, this was a surprise to us too. We aren't casting blame or chewing anyone out. We're trying to figure out how and why it happened so we can get it fixed.[...]We have been notified of the issue and are working with Microsoft to get it resolved. Sorry for any problems related to this. I'll post more once we have a resolution."
It appears that the entire trouble was caused by Gears of War's digital certificate, set to expire on January 28. The day passed and so did the ability to play the game. Hopefully, a solution will be delivered in time.
