Xbox One S Gears of War 4 Limited Edition will see an earlier launch on Oct. 6

If you have your eyes set on the Xbox One S Gears of War 4 Limited Edition bundle, it looks like you'll be able to get your hands on the console a day earlier than originally expected. Initially set for an October 7 launch — coinciding with the early access date for Gears of War 4 Ultimate Edition buyers — the console will instead now launch on October 6.

Xbox's Aaron Greenberg spilled the news on Twitter:

To recap, the Gears of War 4 bundle packs an Xbox One S decked out in red design inspired by its namesake. The console runs $449, but includes a copy of Gears of War 4, all of the Xbox 360 Gears games, the Gears of War 4 Season Pass and some exclusive in-game items. In addition, those who pick up the console will get to play the game ahead of its official October 11 release.
