Well, do you think The Coalition would take years off before Gears 6 to make a new game?I have a feeling The Coalition is up to something.. Even The Intitiative is rumored to be working on multiple projects.
What if the rumored Perfect Dark really is a true [The Coalition X The Initiative] collab, not just multiplayer and one of many to follow.
I know the XGS are just sharing knowledge but these collabs would be pretty amazing, if they'd also include XGS Publishing partners.

I don't know. If they're doing Gears 5 DLC and PD Multiplayer why not other apsects of the game.Well, do you think The Coalition would take years off before Gears 6 to make a new game?
I love Gears. I don't want them to end the franchise.No
But they really should move on after 6. Series needs a long break and its not worth them being stuck on it forever.
I don't think anyone is hungry for 6. It would be better If they did a collab or other IP and gave 6 some time.I enjoyed Gears 5, a lot. But if Gears 6 never came out and they moved on, I wouldn't lose any sleep.
I seriously think they may pull the trigger in WB. Not even joking...Microsoft's end of year reports came out today. Content and services were way up and ahead of predictions:
Gaming revenue jumped 64%, or $1.3B, in Q4 of 2020.
Mostly Content & Services, though HW did gain 49% YoY.
Implies almost $11.6B in sales for the past year from Xbox division, its 2nd best trailing annual result ever.
Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella said "it was simply a breakthrough quarter for gaming" for Microsoft. "Xbox Game Pass is seeing record subscriber growth across console and PC."
Amy Hood also mentioned that Microsoft is actively seeking strategic acquisitions. Strategic investments are the types of purchases that don't need to pay themselves back short term. They are meant to position the company for the future. These types of expenditures leverage the great times to manage long term risk by diversifying the business. It's clear based on everything Nadella and Hood are saying that gaming is emerging as that type of business.
What I think this means:
- Xbox is ahead of schedule and the Microsoft investors are being sold the business of gaming by Nadella (which is a hell of a lot different than Spencer telling gamers things are great) so....
- More studios are coming
- The multiplayer paywall has it's best chance to come down right now
This is looking really good. Getting more and more interested in what Bloober could do with funding. Really impressed considering it's still a small budget game.
Rumor has gained a lot of smoke so you might not be wrong. It's just a move that clashes with so many things which is why I keep betting against it. If they get WB, I feel like they have to hold off on everything else for awhile. Not due to cost but rather due to the amount of time and attention it would take to sort that purchase out. Don't think they could leave them operate per usual like a lot of the other purchases.I seriously think they may pull the trigger in WB. Not even joking...
