Last year, Microsoft stated that Gears 5 would launch sometime in 2019. Even though half of the year is already over, we still don't have a release window or a concrete release date. While the company may be waiting for E3 2019, it looks like the Taiwanese games rating agency had other plans. According to a listing on the body's website, Gears 5 should launch on September 10. This information was uncovered by Generación Xbox before the agency removed the release date.
A September 10 release date is definitely possibly, but as with any such leak, take it with a grain of salt until we receive official confirmation. Unfortunately, it seems like we'll have to wait until E3 to know for sure.
Currently, we know the game will offer single-player, local co-op, online co-op across its campaign. The Coalition says that it's the "biggest, most beautiful" experience in the series. As expected, Gears 5 will also be enhanced for Xbox One X, supporting 4K resolution at 60 frames per second.
If you can't wait for Gears 5, be sure to check out Gears of War 4. The game marks the beginning of a new trilogy and it features breathtaking visuals. Plus, there's also a Transformers-like sequence towards the end.
Gears of War 4 is the latest entry in Microsoft's iconic franchise, packing competitive multiplayer, alongside co-op campaign and "Horde" mode. It's a great all-rounder all, no matter your style.
