It's funny, I might actually check that out, too. There has obviously been some eventful happenings between. It's actually kinda intriguing that they set up some sense that a lot has happened since we've seen them last. JD has obviously done some changing. I'm much more interested in the story now than I was with Gears 4...

The Coalition clearly has huge ambitions for Gears 5, a game that they’re claiming is looking to breathe new life into the series after the studio successfully established itself with Gears of War 4. With the game out sometime this year itself, development would obviously be in full flow, but now The Coalition has diverted all its resources to “making Gears 5 the best game possible.”

In a new update on the Gears of War blog, The Coalition confirmed that they’re no longer working on new content for Gears 4 – meaning things such as customization content and gear packs – to bring all hands on deck for the development of the upcoming sequel. “The time has come to say goodbye to new Customization Content and Gear Packs in Gears 4 as the team shifts their full focus into making Gears 5 the best game possible,” the developer wrote.

Gears 5 is due out some time later this year for Xbox One and PC, but we haven’t yet been given a more specific release date for it. With Microsoft planning to go big at E3 this year, we can probably expect to hear more about a release date – and probably even see a lot more of the game in action – in June a Microsoft’s conference. Stay tuned for more updates in the meantime.

Definitely think they need to do something to inject new live into the series. As good as Gears of War 4 was, it really was just more of the same. Just don't pull a Gears Judgement with the MP and they should be OK.

I would really like to see them introduce some sort of cool new, game-encompassing mechanic. Something you'll use regularly through the series going forward. I have no idea what, I just think they need to add some element to the core stop 'n pop gameplay. There was a reason you were constantly doing something new in Gears 4 every 5 minutes or so, and that's because the core cover shooting mechanics, while good and fun, cannot sustain itself for extended periods of time.

That's way sooner than I thought. Damn it..the release date would have been an amazing reveal at E3. We're so close to E3..I hope there's no more leaks.

Mine is 9/4, it'll be about a week late, but Gears 5 should be a great way to get started on all the releases this fall. Sincerely hope that isn't the legit cover art though, that looks lame.

Speaking of cover art. Anyone that is digital only, have you ever notice that the cover art for the pins for each game changes randomly. Not all games, but some do. I know for sure Rainbow Six Siege cover art changed, as does Fortnite (though I don't play Fortnite).

Only rumor so far, although probably true. But If that’s the case, does that make it a holiday release?
If not, what do they have for the holiday?

I personally would say that September 10th is not holiday. September 10th is STILL summer.

I still hate that line "Screw your order, Captain- It's not about you, its about me".

What a stupid line. How is JD (As Captain) telling her she can't go AWOL have anything to do with him? I know the series is all about that kinda Bad Company renegade stuff, but the line is just dumb.

Of course, then JD is immediately telling Del to go with her, lol.

Yeah, that's a good question.

The "RP" rating logo means it's not definite, so fingers crossed it's not the final box art. It looks like a cheesy fan made thing...
