‘Gears of War 5’ is coming to Xbox in 2019


“Gears of War” has been a stalwart of the Microsoft Xbox library since its first iteration debuted in 2006. And now we’re getting a new one, Microsoft announced at its E3 2018 press conference on Sunday. Say hello to “Gears 5”.

Gears 5 follows on from 2016’s “Gears of War 4,” the first title since Microsoft acquired the franchise from Epic Games back in 2016. The new title is “going back to where it all began” and follows a new, female protagonist as she and her squad attempt to unravel the mystery of the Locusts’ origins. Can. Not. Wait.

Additionally, Microsoft announced that it will soon be releasing a pair of spinoff titles. “Gears Tactics” will offer RTS action (think, Gears of War meets XCOM) while “Gears Pop” will enable players to slaughter the Locust horde as an adorable Funko Pop avatar.
