The Gears of War saga will continue with Gears 5!
The next entry in the third-person shooter series will release next year on Xbox One and PC.
While past installments have focused mainly on the Fenix family, the trailer focused on Kait Diaz. The female COG member will look for personal answers as the war against the Swarm continues. The exciting announcement trailer featured plenty of gameplay that showed Kait as the central star.
Two spin-offs were also announced during the conference. Gears Tactics is a strategy game set within the universe that will feature gigantic boss fights and other signature sights that fans have come to expect. Meanwhile, Gears Pop is a Funko Pop-themed mobile title.
Once again being developed by Microsoft’s The Coalition studio, the new entry will serve as the direct follow-up to 2016’s Gears of War 4. It was the first game in the series to not be developed by Epic Games, although it continued to be one of the most beloved action series on Xbox.
