Gears of War: Judgment will be coming to the UK on February 8th, 2013, according to a pre-order listing from retailer ShopTo. Western games are generally released in North America the Tuesday before they come out in Europe, making the likely US release date February 5th.

As of now, neither Epic Games or developer People Can Fly have so much as speculated on a timetable for the game's release.

Gears of War: Judgment is the fourth game in the Gears of War franchise, and a prequel to the first game in the series. The story focuses on Damon Baird and Augustus Cole, recounting their missions in the early stages of the Locust invasion.

As always, it should be noted that retailer listings are the among the least reliable indicators of game information, though a rash of shockingly accurate reports have come from international retail sites in recent months.
