With this, it seems apparent that the deal not only included streaming only on Mixer but will also have Tyler streaming major Xbox platform exclusives. In doing so, Tyler is marketing these games to an audience that might not otherwise have been interested.
Gears 5 is set to release on September 10 (September 6 for the Ultimate Edition) and pre-load is live right now. As with all Xbox Game Studios titles, Gears 5 is included in Xbox Game Pass.
