As well as announcing Gears of War Ultimate Edition at Xbox’s E3 Press Conference earlier this morning, The Coalition also announced that a new Gears game is in the works – showing off some new gameplay and dating it for a holiday 2016 release.
Not much else was shown off about Gears 4, but we’re hearing that the title will stick. It won’t be known as Gears of War 4, just Gears 4. Perhaps this is because the game won’t be continuing on from the Phoenix trilogy/story and will instead pick up with a new protagonist, which was seen in the gameplay.
Hopefully we’ll see more at Gamescom next month.
