Microsoft confirms Gears Tactics for Xbox One

Tactical insertion

The Gears of War franchise got a lot of love at E3 2018. In addition to confirming the existence of Gears 5 (which no one thought was under debate), we also got the sort of satirical Gears Pop! and Gears Tactics confirmed as spin-offs for the grisly, dudebro series. Both were looking to take the IP in completely different directions to cater to different niches, which is always a good thing. Tactics was announced as a PC exclusive, though, so many didn't expect it to ever hit the Xbox One. Things have changed, it seems.

At Twitter this past week, The Coalition studio head Rod Fergusson confirmed that Tactics will indeed be heading to Microsoft's console. Being developed by Splash Damage (known for Brink and Dirty Bomb), it seems the studio's work on both Gears of War: Ultimate Edition and Gears of War 4 got it upgraded from helping with multiplayer to creating a unique entry. It certainly is a good fit for the series, which has always put an emphasis on "stop and pop" shooting.

We still don't have a release date, but Gears Tactics will indeed be hitting PC and Xbox One when it does eventually launch.
