Rumors started swirling this week that Epic Games was preparing a PC version of Gears of War 3. However, today the developer poured cold water on those rumors and asserted that the game will never go multiplatform.

"Gears of War 3 is an Xbox 360-exclusive game, period," a company spokesperson told Eurogamer.

It all started with a post on the Xbox.com community blog. The preview of the new Xbox 360 dashboard update listed Gears of War 3 on "multiple platforms," rather than as Xbox 360 only. That was apparently enough evidence for the rumor mills to kick in.

To be fair, Epic has been very complimentary of the PC as of late. In an interview this summer, vice president Mark Rein said that the PC has shot by consoles. That, coupled with the fact that the first Gears made its way to the PC, makes the rumor not all that improbable.

Gears 3 was released for the Xbox 360 in September. Read more about it in our review.
