Gears of War: Judgment will hit store shelves on March 19th, Epic Games Director of Production Rod Fergusson confirmed. 

Rumors last month had indicated that the game might be coming in early February. Yesterday, G4's X-Play reported that the game would be coming some time in March via Twitter. Epic then proceeded to reveal the game's final release date in a Comic-Con panel, which Gears fan Waldo Kinney tattooed on himself!

Gears of War: Judgment, a prequel to the original Gears trilogy, follows supporting characters Damon Baird and Augustus Cole during the early days of the war between humans and the Locust. Judgment is being developed by Bulletstorm developer People Can Fly, in collaboration with Epic Games.
