Last week, the internet was abuzz after a tweet from Lester Speights, the voice actor who plays Augustus Cole in the Gears of War series, seemed to confirm that he would be in the next installment of the 3rd-person shooter. Last night, Speights took to Twitter again to clarify to his many fans:
Let me clear up misunderstanding I’m willing to reprise my roll as Cole Train but I HAVEN’T BEEN CONTACTED YET, STOP!!! NO MORE RUMORS!!!

This must be slightly disheartening news to fans since it seems that the next Gears of War game is that much further off than they were hoping. Or it could just mean that the next sequel won’t have his trademark charm, which would be even worse.
