Gears of War could potentially be getting a Master Chief Collection style game in the future, according to reports.
Take this with a grain of salt, but there are rumours of a new collection similar to the Halo collection coming to Xbox. Journalist Nick Baker spoke about it on a podcast, stating he thinks Gears of War will be getting the same treatment Halo did.
Nick Baker stated “A while back I said there is another Microsoft franchise that’s getting the Master Chief Collection-type treatment, I am of the belief that that is coming this year.” He also said “If you go from November 2021 to November 2022 and you look at Microsoft’s big game output, it could wind up being Halo, Gears, Forza.”
Marcus Fenix Collection?
A Gears collection definitely makes a lot of sense. Whether it would include all games in the franchise remains to be seen, but it would certainly please the fans. Well, as long as it didn’t have a similar launch that the Master Chief Collection had back in 2014.
Gears studio The Coalition is moving to Unreal Engine 5 to work on future Gears of War projects. That said, the next big Gears game is probably a way off. A Gears collection would be a great way to make that wait more bearable for fans of the games, and it’d re-introduce the original games to a whole new audience as well.
It worked wonders for Master Chief, so perhaps we’ll be seeing a Marcus Fenix Collection announcement at the next Microsoft presentation? I know I’d buy it.
The Master Chief Collection is still receiving updates, even with Infinite’s development struggles. Recently, ODST Firefight was updated, with new enemies to fight and new ways to play. The Flood are now adversaries in Firefight, along with Elites and other enemies.
