Earlier this year, Epic pulled an announcement of an announcement, letting us know that they had big Gears of War-related news for the Spike Video Game Awards. Apparently plans have changed.

Major Nelson reports that the planned Gears of War reveal has been postponed from tonight's event. According to Major Nelson, the news will come at some point in 2011, and it sounds like Microsoft may still deliver through Spike TV in some form.

Previously it had been rumored that the announcement could be a new Gears of War project that is Kinect-enabled. Sadly, we'll just have to keep speculating for the time being.
