From our Gears 5 review, it is clear that developer The Coalition and Xbox Game Studios have a massive winner on their hands, with Marco giving the game an amazing 9.5 out of 10 and our first-ever Editor’s Choice stamp of approval. The Gears 5 launch has been nothing short of spectacular for Microsoft and the Xbox Game Studios as well with some fantastic player numbers to boast about.
Over on the official Xbox website, The Coalition and Microsoft announced that the game smashed launch records, becoming the biggest launch for any Xbox Game Studios game this generation. It is the biggest Xbox Game Pass title to date in its opening weekend and has easily more than double the number of players than Gears of War 4 did at launch. On PC, things look even more impressive, as the game nearly tripled the performance of Gears of War 4. Lastly, the game’s debut is the biggest ever on Steam for an Xbox title.
Microsoft and The Coalition thanked fans in a new post and revealed some record-breaking information about the Gears 5 launch:
Gears 5 is no doubt a must-play for any fan of the franchise or anyone with an Xbox One or a capable gaming PC.
