A ‘Gears of War collection’ of some sort has been a hot topic for a number of years at this point, with lots of rumours and reports pointing towards it becoming a reality some day. We’ve never heard anything official from Xbox on the matter, but a recent comment from Phil Spencer has reignited some theories on such a collection possibly happening soon.
So, we decided to load up some good old Gears of War 3 here in a new Let’s Play video to reminisce about the good times, and to talk about that comment from the Xbox boss. Again, we’re not sure if any sort of collection is in the works, but after playing Gears 3 again for the first time in a good while, we really do hope it’s real.
We know the first game was essentially remade with Gears of War: Ultimate Edition, but Gears 2 and 3 are still Xbox 360 games these days (albeit with great current-gen enhancements) and a proper Xbox Series X|S version of all three games would do wonders for the Gears community as it patiently awaits Gears 6.
We reckon Gears 2 could benefit the most from a new remaster or remake, but Gears 3 would certainly be improved as well – even if new, actual dedicated servers would be the biggest win for the third game!
Having said all that, which Gears of War game would you play first if a ‘Gears Collection’ launched sometime soon? Vote in the poll down below and let us know your pick!
Gears of War is my Favorite XBOX franchise. I want this collection for myself of course but also for the newer younger players to get into it before the show launches. The first 3 are my favorite so these in true next gen form would be insane fun. Plus give me multiplayer to them again. This would be a great July August release if it’s ready and then drop Starfield in September and then Forza, that is a strong back half release lineup.
