E3 2018: Gears 5 Officially Announced

It finally happened. During their E3 2018 Briefing, Microsoft announced two spin-off titles in the Gears of War universe, one that’s an XCOM-esque RTS game, alongside a mobile Funko Pop! adventure. But that’s not all. They closed their three announcements with latest entry into the now long running franchise.

Simply called Gears 5, it would seem this entry will center on Kait Diaz, who was revealed to have a much larger role in the world of Gears of War. This also looks to take place a couple of years after the events of Gears of War 4 as everyone (especially JD) look to have seen even more battles.

Gears 5 will be out sometime in 2019 for Xbox One and PC.
