Gears of War 5 Announced, Releasing 2019

Marcus and JD are back for another adventure against the Locust.

Gears of War 5 has finally been revealed. The upcoming game from The Coalition was shown off during Microsoft's E3 2018 presentation, on June 10.

Aside from Gears Pop, a mobile collaboration game in partnership with Funko Pop, and a Gears of War strategy game, Gears of War 5 was shown off in a gameplay demo trailer.

The trailer shows Kait having lost someone dear to her. After this, the squad of JD, Marcus, Del, and Kait appear to fall out, with an older JD calling the shots now. Kait wants to find out more about her family, but JD is firmly against this.

As of right now, we only know that Gears of War 5 will be launching at some point in 2019. But, the final release date for the game is anyone's guess.

He's written for The Guardian, Paste Magazine, and Kotaku, and he likes waking up when the sun rises and roaming the nearby woods with the bears and the wolves.
