After being delayed from its planned April 2011 release, the bromance between lead characters Marcus and Dom has finally procured a new release date. Gears of War 3 will emerge on September 20, Microsoft revealed.

The announcement comes hot off the heels of Epic's newly released People Can Fly-developed shooter, Bulletstorm. Though we're not sure the language will be as colorful in Gears of War 3, it's safe to assume that the game will be comparable to Bulletstorm in terms of pints of blood exploding throughout the world.

Bulletstorm purchasers on the Xbox 360 will get to see the updated deep red colors of a tweaked Unreal Engine 3 when the game's included Gears of War 3 beta access is activated. Epic hasn't revealed when the beta will begin but at least we know when it won't happen: namely, after September 20.
