Exciting news may be on the horizon for Gears of War fans as a potential hint about the next entry in the series, tentatively named Gears 6 by fans, surfaced in an unexpected place – a Christmas tweet. While concrete details about the future of this long-standing Xbox series have been scarce, it appears that 2024 might bring some much-anticipated updates for eager fans!
The official Gears of War Twitter (X?) account shared holiday cheer earlier this week, extending a “Merry Gearsmas” to all fans. Initially, the tweet itself appeared innocent, but what caught the attention of eagle-eyed fans was a quote tweet from Benjamin Huyghe, a developer at The Coalition, the studio behind the Gears of War franchise since 2015.
Huyghe’s seemingly cryptic addition to the holiday greeting read, “See you in 2024 #Gearsfam.” Notably, Huyghe has played a key role as a level designer for all five previous Gears of War games developed by The Coalition: Gears of War: Ultimate Edition, Gears of War 4, Gears 5 and the turn-based game, Gears Tactics. So, it’s quite reasonable to speculate that his seemingly innocent remark about the upcoming year could be a subtle tease for the much-anticipated Gears 6.
The studio has kept a tight lid on its projects since the release of Gears 5, leaving fans hungry for information about the next installment. While details about Gears 6’s development are scarce, the prevailing rumor suggests a potential 2026 release window. Considering it’s been four years since Gears 5 hit the scene, it’s high time that we at least get a sneak-peek into the future of the series!
