Afraid of having their big cover be shown up by a Press Conference Microsoft is hosting on Monday, Game Informer quietly leaked their next issue cover featuring what appears to be a prequel of Gears of War.

The cover shows Augustus Cole and Damon Baird in handcuffs and looking rather young.

Ready for a new Gears of War from Microsoft on Monday? Get ready, the reveal comes during the 9:30 AM Press Conference (Pacific Time).

Expect Kinect support and despite all the prayers in the world, don’t look for a PC version.
