The fate of Gears of War 3 character Carmine will not be revealed until the game’s release.
Last year, Epic Games ran a promotion that saw players decide whether the character lives or dies by buying Avatar T-shirts, which raised over £91,000 for charity.
Mike Capps from Epic Games told attendees at Gamescom 2011 that the publisher wrote both endings into the game in case it was released in advance.
“We actually wrote both endings in the game just in case the game leaked so no-one would be able to tell what happens,” he said.
“And so we won’t tell you now. On September 20 everyone will find out.”
Gears of War 3 will be released for the Xbox 360 on September 20 worldwide.
