The news popped up during IGN’s friendly chat with Epic Games lead designer Cliff Bleszinski:

"Gears of War is a great franchise first and foremost for Xbox 360, and therefore we’re focusing on that platform for Gears of War 2. We’ve decided we’re not going to do a PC version this time around."

Gears of War arrived on the PC in November 2007, a year later than the console version. The game failed to become very popular in the world of PC gaming due to its control. Originally designed to work smoothly with a controller, the game was not quite well-adapted for the mouse and keyboard combo.

Gears Of War 2 will be released on Xbox 360 on November 7.
