When the original Xbox launched, one of the things that made it special were the 1st party games that came to it. They embraced the graphics power and online capability of the console and shined through it. When the Xbox 360 released, they decided to up the ante in that regard, and one of the results of that was Gears of War. This franchise has spanned five titles so far (4 main entries and one spinoff in Judgment) and has captured the imaginations (and adrenaline) of many. But now, many want Gears Of War 5.
To be fair, this isn’t an unreasonable request, after all, Gears Of War 4 did very well on the Xbox One. And it set up a new timeline, and even a threat, for players to dive into for some time. But, with the Xbox One X out, and rumors of a potential new system coming eventually, will it come out soon? Well, Phil Spencer, the head of Xbox, teased on a blog that it could indeed be coming soon.
For while talking on a blog about the new Xbox One Game Pass, he said this:
“This plan to bring new games timed with their global release into Xbox Game Pass not only includes announced titles like Sea of Thieves, State of Decay 2 and Crackdown 3 but future unannounced games from Microsoft Studios including new iterations of our biggest Xbox One exclusive franchises such as Halo, Forza and Gears of War, on the same day they launch.”
We know that Halo 6 is in the works, and Forza is a franchise that always has something in the works. But, him saying Gears of War 5 seems to indicate that at the very least, the game is in the works right now, and that’s going to go a long way with fans.
