** When playing through Beast Mode in Gears of War 3, one will notice that there are 5 empty spaces in the Locust selection interface. Indeed, there were originally 20 playable creatures to choose from in the mode. Early beta footage showed that the Grenadier Elite was playable; most likely cut for playing identically to the Savage Grenadier, so it was unnecessary to include both grenadiers. The footage also showed that Grinders were originally playable as well; most likely cut for being too easy to sit in the back of the maps and pick off humans from a distance since Beast encourages players to get close to the action. Also, Grinders don't possess melee attacks, so they would have no reliable way to kill Hero units and Onyx Guards. In addition, Reavers were also playable as well. They were stated to have been cut due to the developers having issues with them fitting on the smaller and indoor maps like Checkout and Rustlung. However, since Reavers are very large, it was also probably overpowered since you could potentially just launch rockets over the scenery to get easy kills while bypassing the fortifications. Another minor one, but the Armored Kantus was also shown DualWielding Boltok pistols in beta footage, but was changed to dual Gorgons. Sadly, it is unknown what the other 2 cut creatures were.

* ExecutiveMeddling: Microsoft pushing the release date of ''Gears of War 3'' back five whole months from April 2011 to September 2011.
** Arguably a positive example of meddling from higherups: Epic Games may not have done a multiplayer beta if this had been released as scheduled and they themselves seemed happy about a chance to polish everything to a spit shine.

2011. It is arguably a positive example of meddling from higherups: meddling, members of Epic Games may have said the delayed release gave them more time to refine the game, they would not have done a multiplayer beta if this had been released as scheduled and they themselves seemed happy about a chance to that helped polish everything to a spit shine.
