A new Gears of War game was basically just revealed

Wedged in with all of this morning’s Xbox Game Pass news was something for Gears of War fans to hang their proverbial hats on. That is, what was effectively confirmation of a new series entry.

While stating that all future (first party) Microsoft titles will be made available through Game Pass at release, Xbox’s Phil Spencer alluded to the company’s next Gears of War title.

“This plan to bring new games timed with their global release into Xbox Game Pass not only includes announced titles like Sea of Thieves, State of Decay 2 and Crackdown 3 but future unannounced games from Microsoft Studios including new iterations of our biggest Xbox One exclusive franchises such as Halo, Forza and Gears of War, on the same day they launch,” wrote Spencer.

Will this be Gears of War 5, or some sort of spinoff? That, we don’t know. We are now aware, however, of the fact that another Gears game is in the works. Granted, that doesn’t come as a surprise.
