It looks like development on Gears of War 4 is going well as the game will now be releasing slightly earlier than expected. During a live stream this week, Microsoft revealed that the Xbox One exclusive would now be launching in ‘Fall 2016’, rather than the holiday season.
This means that Gears of War 4 could end up launching at a similar time to Gears of War: Ultimate Edition, which launched at the end of August in 2015. Microsoft seems to have high hopes for its exclusive as well, claiming that 45 percent of Gears of War: Ultimate Edition were new to the series.
We will actually get our first look at Gears of War 4 in the Spring when the multiplayer beta launches, which those who own Gears of War: Ultimate Edition will have first dibs on.
At first, Gears of War 4 was thought to be a Xbox One exclusive and while that does seem true for the time being, Gears of War: Ultimate Edition is heading to the PC so it is possible that Microsoft is planning on bringing future games over as well.
KitGuru Says: I played a lot of Gears of War: Ultimate Edition last year so I’ll be looking forward to Gears 4 later this year. However, I do hope that Microsoft will bring the franchise back to the PC following this sequel. Did any of you play a lot of Gears of War back in the day? Would you like to see Gears 4 come to PC or will you be playing on Xbox?
