Microsoft and Splash Damage have announced at The Game Awards 2019 that they are planning on releasing Gears Tactics on PC on April 28, 2020 though the developer did not state if the Xbox One version is also being released on the same day, though it is worth noting that it will be immediately available through Xbox Game Pass upon release.
Gears Tactics is set 12 years before the first Gears of War. Cities on the planet Sera are beginning to fall to the monstrous threat rising from underground, the Locust Horde. With the government in disarray, a squad of survivors emerge as humanity’s last hope. Play as Gabe Diaz, recruiting, developing and commanding your squads on a desperate mission to hunt down the relentless and powerful leader of the Locust army: Ukkon, the mastermind monster who makes monsters.
