Gears 5 Release Date

At Xbox E3 briefing, Gears 5 has been confirmed for a September 10 release date with Escape Mode and more.

It has been over a year since developer studio The Coalition and publisher Xbox Game Studios remained tight lipped on any information about their upcoming third-person shooter game Gears 5 following an official reveal back at E3 2018.

Last month, an accidental leak from Taiwanese ratings board revealed official box art and a possible release date of September 10, 2019. Today, both of those leaks are eventually confirmed at E3 2019 press conference for Xbox One.
