Gears Of War 5 Now Shortened To Just Gears 5

Excuse me, I might have a Gears 5 article to edit.

If you were wondering why, during Xbox’s E3 Briefing, the new Gears of War game was announced as just Gears 5, it turns out that’s a conscious move on behalf of The Coalition, and it has to do with simplifying the franchise’s brand. Studio Head Rod Fergusson took to Twitter to answer a question from IGN’s Ryan McCaffrey about the name change.

In fairness, changing the name from Gears of War Tactics to just Gears Tactics rolls off the tongue better, plus the word Gears has just become the shorthand term for the franchise anyway. That being said, it’s going to take a while for it to sink in. Expect the occasional “Gears of War 5” to slip into our copy every now and again.
