Gears of War: E-Day: “It Will be the best F___ing Gears Ever!”

The Coalition’s creative director had such a blunt opinion about his game, which is somewhat fitting for the franchise, as 17-18 years ago Gears of War had a similar style…


Gears of War: E-Day will be a prequel, and it was revealed at the Xbox Games Showcase (although whether it ran on PC or Xbox Series is open to question). The studio is very positive about it, and nothing is more proof of that than what Matt Searcy, creative director of The Coalition, said in an interview with Console Creatures:

“Making games is really hard. There’s a lot of investment that you make. And when you find the idea that lit us up in that moment, even when you’re talking about your strategies and games and trilogies and what you could do or not do. You grab that lightning in a bottle. This is the game that everybody’s excited about. We’re going to make that game.

Because it’s going to be the best f___ing Gears game everybody’s ever played if we make it. We had this technology that we were working on. This is the story that’s going to show it off the best. I think it’s really, at the end of the day, it’s about, again, it’s not Nicole and I making this decision. It’s a whole studio of people who are invested in this idea. And you go, “Hell yeah, let’s do it,” said Searcy, who may be the most outspoken voice we’ve heard since Cliff Blenszinski, aka CliffyB, during the first few Gears of War…

According to Tom Warren, editor of The Verge, Gears of War: E-Day will be released sometime in 2025 for Xbox Series and PC, and it is possible that the plans for the game have changed, as they did not give a release date to “give us some breathing space” with The Coalition, but it is likely that this time Microsoft did not make the mistake of showing a video of a project that has barely started (they did that with Fable several years ago).

Speaking of the Fable reboot, Warren also talked about it. According to him, it could be released for the Xbox line and PC in the last quarter of 2025, so sometime between October and December, so it could be the Redmond company’s Christmas headliner next year… but it’s not official.
