Gears of War 4 Release Date May Have Been Pushed Up January 11, 2016Posted by Maniac in Game News.
Several media outlets including GameSpot and MSN are reporting that one of this year’s highly anticipated Xbox One exclusive titles, Gears of War 4, may be coming out a little sooner than expected.
First announced at E3 2015, Gears of War 4 was revealed with a projected release date of Holiday 2016. Recently, during an official Microsoft live stream, Microsoft announced that the game would be out a little sooner, and listed the game’s release date as Fall 2016, which could mean it might release a few months earlier than expected.
Of course these are just semantics, since the game has no specific release date. Fall games can generally be expected between September and November of any given year. A game specifically listed as a Holiday release could be expected to launch in either November or December. Both of those projections could easily still mean the game’s official release schedule has not changed, and instead has just been clarified, but that’s just speculation on my part.
Gears of War 4 is expected to launch an online beta this spring for any players who picked up Gears of War Ultimate Edition on Xbox One.
Gears of War 4 is coming Fall 2016 exclusively on Xbox One.
