We haven't seen or heard ANYTHING about Hoffman since the end of Gears. Not even a passing reference, not even a bit of dialogue in the background, NOTHING. So what happened to him? Did he die? WILL he die?

This is rather mysterious. One of the power players in the Gears universe is MIA... and nobody is noticing! GASP!

Baseless speculation plz.

I'm fairly sure I saw him in the background of one of those documentary videos.

Hoffman is the best.

Epic, I hope you know the consequences if you kill this valiant soldier!

<3 Hoffman <3

He's there, he's just not getting any spotlight.

he will be in a vid on last day, if you go to the last locked tab, you will see a flag, a bunch of derrecks and heli's, he will be saying a speech to the gears, but i have a feeling its the last thing epic's going to unlock for us, so it might be quite a wait

Like Hoffman played a major role in the first one...He was mainly a voice through the radio. He's not a sargeant, he's no infantry, Hoffman is a friggin Colonel!

My cousins friend got the game early...(not real friend xbox live friend) and he relayed everything to me from the campaign, and it turns out Hoffman betrays delta squad.








JUST KIDDING!!!

I don't even have a cousin...lol.

Could be that he just doesn't care enough about Delta Squad to be active in the story line. I suspect the only reason Prescott's there is because Marcus makes a pretty good poster boy for the COG. Good PR to be by him often.

If you didn't figure he was going to have a heart attack by gears 2 then thats your fault...

Maybe Hoffman has more stuff to do then hanging around with Delta Squad.

I want Hoffman to die and Marcus to take his place as the Colonel.

That is sad. :o

I've seen some MP videos of Hoffman, but it's no surprise that they haven't shown him in SP videos, because EPIC are focusing more on Prescott.

Yeah I think thathe will be mostly a voice on the ear piece. He might help out by sending troops and whatnot, but I doubt he will be in game action. I wouldn't put it past Epic to kill him.

Hears my theory:

Hoffman dies/// or is discharged for not getting the job done on the lightmass bomb, so presscott take lead.

Prescott has always been the man in charge. Hoffman is his second in command, right hand man, BFF, etc.

I think Hoffmann is going to be alot more respected by gamers in Gears 2. Now he won't be all mad at Marcus, and he will probably be nicer!

No I ment that he'll try to get the job done HIMSELF! Because he sort of blames others for not getting it DONE!

Still, being the man in charge, Prescott isn't going to just up and decide to pick up a gun and take care of business. It's like if George Bush, Vladimir Putin, Gordon Brown, Felipe Calderon, or any other world leader just picking up a gun and fighting in a war.

They don't have to, so they wont. Would you if you controlled thousands of men who were actually trained to do that job?

No,no,no what I ment was Prescott taking full controle, witch means he will have a bigger role in the story, and shows up more then Hoffman, because now he seems like he HIMSELF wants to address the COG, he HIMSELF wants to give orders right to there faces!


And besides I think EPIC has something cooked up for hoffman.......like dying.

Gears of War 2 trailers so far have focused on something some of the newer features, characters, enemies and weapons. They don't show Hoffman in the trailers as there's not much to show of him.

Oh, you know they get together and paint their nails, give facials, and braid each other's chest hair. Since neither of them have enough hair on their heads.

And I think I just made myself sick.

As for Prescott, maybe he was busy supporting some other unit the first game. Or maybe, just maybe, he was doing his job.
