Microsoft is preparing to launch a remastered version of the first Gears of War game at the end of next month, putting the series back on the map ahead of Gears of War 4, which is due to launch some time towards the end of 2016. This game will also be the first in a while to make an appearance on the PC, although it won’t be arriving at the same time as Xbox.
Gears of War: Ultimate Edition was initially announced for the Xbox One at E3 and then later re-announced for PC. While the Xbox One version will be launching on the 25th of August, the PC version currently has no release date, something that Phil Spencer recently reiterated on Twitter.
Responding to a fan asking if Gears of War Ultimate Edition would launch on the PC and Xbox One at the same time, Spencer said: “Gears on Win10 is later than Xbox One”. Unfortunately, we still don’t know how much later the PC version of the game will actually be.
Gears of War: Ultimate Edition is a remaster of Epic Games’ 2006 shooter, featuring the five missions that were exclusive to the PC version of the original game. It is worth pointing out that Gamescom is just a few weeks away, so we may hear more then.

KitGuru Says: With Gears of War: Ultimate Edition heading to the PC, it is possible that we will also see Gears of War 4 appear on the platform. Though, there is no word on Gears 2, 3 or Judgement, which were all Xbox 360 exclusive.
