Epic's Mike Capps has confirmed that Gears of War 3 is not ever going to be released on PC and has explained to Bit-Gamer why that it is the case.

'It's a decision to focus on the market majority, Capps told us yesterday at GamesCom 2011 in Cologne, Germany.

Explaining further, Capps said that creating a PC version of Gears of War 3 would not be as easy as copying the code over and would require quite a bit of work for Epic.

'It was a choice. In that amount of time we could have done one big Xbox 360 update for Gears of War 3, or we could have made a PC port. It was a matter of priorities.'

Capps also made mention of the original PC version of Gears of War, which he said had not exceeded Epic's expectations.
