August 3, 2009 - Will gamers finally be able to play as a female in the Gears of War series?

That's the question Epic Games' Cliff Bleszinski was asked by 1 vs. 100 Live host Chris Cashman during a game this past Saturday, according to Binge Gamer.

Bleszinski danced around the question and said he couldn't comment on "'possible aspects' of a game that 'may or may not' be in development."

He then followed up on his comment by saying the female character sitting on top of a dead Brumak from the comic series "'may or may not' be involved in any 'as-yet-unannounced' video game projects."

To further add to the speculation, the director on the upcoming Gears of War movie, Len Wiseman, said at Comic Con he wants female characters in the movie. "I'd love to see it happen. I'm a big supporter of that."
