Microsoft has announced plans to halt development on new unlocks for Gears of War 4, in preparation for Gears 5. With a fifth installment of the third-person shooter slated for 2019, developer 'The Coalition' is shifting resources away, cutting new customization content and Gears Packs for the title.
On the Gears of War blog, The Coalition discussed its current plans for Gears of War 4 and making the shift to its next project.
While scaling back its resources on Gears of War 4, the team is still teasing future content on the horizon. With "plenty of Special Events and more" reportedly planned ahead of next game, this will bridge the gap for series fans.
The announcement pairs with details on the "Gilded RAAM Challenge" headed to Gears of War 4; including rewards extending to Gears 5. Completing three hefty tasks across its mode unlocks an exclusive gold-trimmed Gilded RAAM" skin, alongside the "Black Phantom Weapon Skin Set."
Gears 5 is slated for a 2019 release on Xbox One and Windows 10.
