With millions of copies of Gears of War 2 already sold and with the game breaking all kinds of records regarding online play, thereâ€™s also a downside to playing GoW2 online, believe it or not. Apparently, some gamers playing the multiplayer versus modes have suffered from some serious matchmaking issues, with game waits ranging from 10 minutes to an hour. Thankfully, Epic has confirmed that it is aware of the problem and is working to fix the issue.
On the official Gears of War 2 forums Epicâ€™s Six Okay let the community know through the Q&A section that the issue will be fixed soon.
“This is an issue that’s affecting some folks, and Epic and Microsoft are both looking into it. I’ll let you know more details as I have them.”
Waiting 10 minutes to an hour for a quick round of chainsaw massacre and curb-stomp goodness is a bit too much, but it doesnâ€™t seem to keep gamers from playing. How are you coping with this issue? Did you even have issues with the long waiting times or do you embrace them by using them as bathroom breaks? Did you make a couple of awesome screenshots you want to share with others or are you just losing lots of sleep over this game? Let us know below as usual or post some screens in our excellent forum.
