Gears of War Designer's 'Late Night' Game Reveal Bumped, The Bieber Steps In

Tomorrow was supposed to be the day that Gears of War designer Cliff Bleszinski was to appear on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon to debut the new Gears of... err... Epic's new game. There's been a change of plans.

Mr. Huge will now appear on the late night talk show next Monday, April 12, game reveal still in hand, large plastic Lancer assault rifle still left at home. Late Night with Jimmy Fallon producers blame the bump on a scheduling conflict, the capable and equally dreamy pop star Justin Bieber appearing in his stead.

That might lead one to conclude that Justin Bieber is responsible for the delay in giving us a peek at the new Ge... whatever it is that Epic Games is working on, currently rumored to be Gears of War 3.

(BIEBER!!! *shakes fist*)

Not so, says The B. Bleszinski says on his Twitter account that the "11th hour decision" to move to Monday is not due to being bigfooted by Bieber. Cliff says "the truth of the matter is that we wanted to take a couple more days to polish what we're showing."

While the postponement is unfortunate, at least we'll get to see Cliff rub elbows with actor Alan Cumming on Monday's episode. Oh, the flirtation will most definitely be delicious.
