The Next Gears of War is Just Called 'Gears 5'

By Laura Kate Dale on at

During Microsoft's E3 2018 press conference, they showed off the fifth main entry in the Gears of War franchise. The trailer ended with just the text Gears 5, but that hasn't stopped most of us from calling it Gears of War 5. However, the new shortened name is apparently the one that will appear on game boxes, and be the official name of the game. Yep, Gears of War 5 will just say Gears 5 on the box.

Seems saying the "of War" bit every time was a bit of a mouthful. Fergusson does have a point, we're probably all just going to call it Gears 5 anyway, so why fight it? I for one am looking forward to the next entry in the Call series.
