Last year, Microsoft stated that Gears 5 would launch sometime in 2019. Even though half of the year is already over, we didn't get a release window or a concrete release date. Luckily, the Taiwanese games rating agency had other plans. According to a listing on the body's website, Gears 5 launches on September 10.
During E3 2019, Microsoft confirmed the release date. Gears 5 looks like it tells a personal story and focuses on the mental anguish of the main character. It's unclear where the story will go from there, but The Coalition studio head Rod Ferguson said that it's the biggest Gears game ever made.
New modes like "Escape" are also being added to the game. You have to make it out of a facility alive before you're killed by the enemy. There's a lot of like about the upcoming game, but its distribution model is even better. Aside from launching on Xbox Game Pass, Gears 5 is going to launch on Steam for PC.
You can take a look at the Steam page here. While it doesn't include the release date at the moment, there are plenty of amazing screenshots to look at. It'll probably go up for preorder soon now that it's listed on the platform.
We'd like to thank Twitter user "@klobrille" for the tip.
