The upcoming addition to the Gears of War franchise will be called Gears 5 rather than Gears of War 5.
I'm so glad I was around the original Gear of War and got to enjoy how great this franchise was. Good Times.
my sentiments exactly. gears of war was the first game I purchased on my 360. couch co op with my brother was one of the bests ever. good times indeed.
Gears of War and Dead Rising were my reason for buying a 360.
Gears of Drama.
If it isn't Gears of War 5 then why not just call it Gears or Gears 1?

Ha there has been a lot of shilling for Sony this gen with all their exclusives rated a full point higher than they should be while Xbox has undeservedly scored a point than they should.
@skull What a piece of total and complete conspiracy bullshit. You're really claiming that the entire internet has teamed up and artificially inflated a Sony game reviews whilst simultaneously deflating Xbox scores? What a truly, salty fanboy you are. Get a grip
"Ha there has been a lot of shilling for Sony this gen with all their exclusives rated a full point higher than they should be while Xbox has undeservedly scored a point than they should." lmao, hahahahahahahahahaha wow you cant make this shit up.
It was beautiful. I remeber feeling nervous kind of, playing gears online. It felt so badass/hardcore. Everything aboutbit was awesome
The first time using that chainsaw....
I like it
Gears V works for me.
Gears of War One
Yeah I think now is easier to distinguish it in online conversations from God of war. Since their release I've seen people use both GoW and GeoW for gears, but GoW more consistently. It's a silly thing but I like that is just gears.
If you type 'GOW' in Google, google comes up with Gears of War instead of God of War.
@mad Only wikipedia If you type 'gow game' its God of War everywhere
State of decay also sold on pc and xb1 where gow and dbh only came out on playstatio... Plus the fact not many 1st partys have even came out since sot and all the way last year with forza... Anyways... smart move to ms putting most of their games on pc and xbgp
wrong article, dude
You must be proud of yourself for fighting on the frontline of an imaginary war that only exists in your head. Keep up the good fight, maybe one day you'll be able to return home. /S
If he doesn't do we give him a fanboy funeral on N4G?
@paintedgamer Get some sleep. You are clearly tired.
Nintendo and MS teaming up had finally make you become delusional huh.
lol.. WHUT. Not even sure what you're trying to say. Razzer - every article is the right article for these people. Yet, 7 hours ago and the mods still ain't kicked the comment.
Go cry elsewhere.
Next installment Grz 6.
Imo gears 5 would work on switch you can play gears on Xbox with your friend who has switch on the go
Switch hardware wouldn’t be capable of running it but that is a cool concept
Cogs of War
It will still be Gears 5 heh . Gears of Doritos - Mountain of Dew
"Gears of Doritos - Mountain of Dew" lmao this is too much i cant deal rofl :D
All these people saying ‘bring back the old gears’ even though they have no intention of playing the new games in the series because they hate Xbox now, the original trilogy is a gaming classic but Rod and his team are doing great work on their games
even if they don't like xbox they'll be playing it on PC. duh
Looks amazing regardless:)
And so ends the long-standing acronym battle between God of War and Gears of War.
Not gonna stop me from calling it Gears of War 5 like how I still call it God of War 4
Eh, dropping the "Gears of" seems rather strange but everyone calls the series plain "Gears" to begin with since the original game.
Just call it Ramb-ho
Makes no sense but whatever
Probably not to shorten it GoW and confuse people?
Rod Fergusson already addressed this in an interview during E3... He said so many people were already cutting out the "of war" part of the Gears of War titles... So they decided to cut the "of War" part of the title. All future Gears of War titles will be Gears (then whatever else goes with the title) for example Gears Tactics, Gears 5 and Gears Pop!...
Super excited, they hired some new writers, one of them is from the former Irrational Games ( Bioshock makers) and you can tell that they're new found focus on a more intimate story is proof that they took the criticisms from the last title to heart. These guys can easily make a GOTY level title, like really Gears 4's mediocre story held back an otherwise incredible title.
Does it really matter.
Either way Gears 5 or just plain Gears I want this game
hate the new name. .imagine having just cod on the box
I don't care what it's called as long as the game has a better story than Gears of War 4 the Gears of War 4 story could have been a lot better if it has a better story I'm in.
