A fifth update for Gears of War 2 is being prepared, with no date given yet for its release.
Rod Fergusson, Executive Producer:
As I’m sure most of you are aware, there’s been a rash of cheating going on and it looks like it’s due to a security vulnerability that was introduced in the previous title update. We’ve fixed the problem and are working hard to get the latest title update with the fix tested and certified.
Beyond the hacking fix, there will also be some other awesome improvements and fixes in TU5. As an example, we’ve fixed “sticky walk”, we’ve fixed the Subway exploit and we’ve added the ability to see friendly planted grenades in Tac/Com.
I’m sorry for those of you that have been affected by cheaters and we’ll be doing everything we can to rectify it.
