'Gears 5' Is “Looking Great” According To Xbox Boss Phil Spencer

'Gears 5' Is “Looking Great” According To Xbox Boss Phil Spencer

The fifth instalment in the Gears of War franchise, simply titled Gears 5, ("of war" is SO last season) is "looking great" according to head of Xbox, Phil Spencer. He made the comment - brief, but telling - during a recent visit to series developer The Coalition.

There's not much to glean from squinting at the tiny screens. (Is that a helicopter?) But hey, it seems like things are well on track for that 2019 release date. Not that the boss of Xbox is going to trash his own game or offer critical insight, so this really amounts to little more than "this game exists and will be released" - but sometimes, that's all you wanna hear.

And it's not the only recent update on the game, either. Rod Ferguson tweeted this out just a few days ago:

The new Gears does look like some fun, with a female lead, melee combat options and some daft set pieces. Will it make more of an impression than Gears of War 4? That game seemed to come and go with next to no fanfare.
