Gears of War Could Reportedly Be Getting a Halo MCC-Style Remastered Collection

Gears of War might be getting its own remastered compilation, in a similar vein to Halo: The Master Chief Collection, according to a report from XboxEra.

Speaking on the latest episode of the XboxEra Podcast, journalist Nick Baker mentions that he's aware that “there is another Microsoft franchise that's getting the Master Chief Collection-type treatment” and that he believes it is coming this year, possibly to be announced at the Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase in June.

While Baker doesn't make mention of Gears straight away, he does mention later that Microsoft's big output for the year could be “Halo, Gears, Forza”. Additionally, the section of the YouTube video of the podcast is named “Oh, Gears Collection?”, and Baker has previously hinted at a remastered Gears collection. Back then, The Verge journalist Tom Warren also commented on the rumour, saying that “the gears are really turning on this rumour”.

So, while this is all still rumour, and worth taking with a big pinch of salt, it doesn't seem all that unlikely that a Gears of War remastered collection could be announced and launched later this year. With the first Gears of War already getting a remaster, could we also see nice shiny versions of Gears of War 2 and Gears of War 3 as well? Maybe.

  • Enter expressionless face here.
  • Imagine the insane levels of grind for this collection. FUCK lol
  • Could also be games from Bethesda like the elders scrolls
  • If 2 and 3 got the ultimate treatment that the first game did, that would be awesome. However I don't think they'd go that far and if that is the case, I imagine what we'd get would be fairly minor upgrades. The 360 ones run in back compat with the FPS boost and I think they got resolution patches, so they still look great. I guess the collection might have a strong community for multiplayer

    It's criminal we haven't been given a Morrowind remaster in 3 generations.
  • DO IT!!!!

    There are so many classic maps I love so much, and I hate that they maps didn't carry forward.

    Gears of War 2 had some of the best maps of all time. Like the one that slowly fills with immulsion until the whole map is flooded.
  • I could only imagine the seriously achievement would be
  • "Seriously just no!" Is probably the title of the achievement if so.
