Gears of War 3 is 2011’s ’Most Anticipat

Market research firm Ipsos has labelled Gears of War 3 2011’s most anticipated game.

The firm released a chart of the most anticipated titles of the year across the UK and US ranked by purchase intent, and Epic’s game topped the bill in both markets.

Killzone 3, Forza Motorsport 4, Mass Effect 3 and Need for Speed: Shift 2 followed Gears 3 on the list of most anticipated titles in the UK.

Batman: Arkham City, Uncharted 3, Battlefield 3, Mortal Kombat and Resistance 3 also made the top ten, but there was no sign of a new Call of Duty game on the list, which you can see in the image (above), courtesy of IndustryGamers.

"Based on recent data pulled from GamePlan UK, Sony appears to be well positioned in 2011; three of the top ten and five of the top 25 most anticipated titles are first-party PlayStation offerings," said Ipsos director of gaming insights Nick Williams.

"Microsoft stakes claim to the most anticipated title of the New Year, Epic Games’ Gears of War 3, however; only two of the top 25 titles are first-party Xbox 360 titles. Nintendo is publishing the only Wii title in the top 25: The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword."

A Gears of War 3 beta is likely to launch "sometime around April", ahead of the game’s autumn release, developer Epic has said.
