Gears of War 2 coming November 9th?

On a new Gears of War image posted here they show someone, presumably Marcus Fenix (the protagonist from the first Gears of War game), holding several dog tags.

If you look at them closely you’ll see that one of them has numbers on it:

033 116 117 126 071

If you were to assume that those were octal values and look them up on an ASCII table (like this one), you’d see that they convert to:

ESC N O V 9

Looks like hidden in plain sight is the release date for Gears of War 2–November 9th.

No official confirmation from Epic on this yet, but its not likely that the numbers on the dog tag are random, so looks like a release date to me.

Good catch, DieNasty!
