Gears of War 2 not coming to PC

In an IGN interview with Cliff Bleszinski, it was revealed by Cliff that Gears of War 2 would not be coming to the PC. The point of interest came up in a question about Gears 2’sLinked Achievements” and the Achievement portability with an account from Games for Windows Live. Cliff said that if you use the same gamertag as you had with the original Windows version on your 360, you would get the retroactive content. When prompted about a PC version of Gears 2, Cliff spilled the beans:

Gears of War is a great franchise first and foremost for Xbox 360, and therefore we're focusing on that platform for Gears of War 2. We've decided we're not going to do a PC version this time around.

Community member Too Much Coffee Man and I echo the same sentiment in this matter. It’s really unfortunate that the series will not be hitting the PC because of its visual quality and originality. But, the lack of a PC version means that we will get all of the goodies on the Xbox 360 that we should have had last time around. Since my Macintosh can’t run anything past Tetris clones and World of Warcraft, I’m not too injured by this statement and therefore will eagerly consume all of the exclusive Xbox 360 content greedily.
