Gears Of War Book May Be Hinting At Gears 5 Release Date
Ever since Gears 5 was announced during Microsoft’s presentation at E3 2018, fans have been wondering when they will be able to sink their teeth into the latest entry in the popular Gears of War franchise. Unfortunately, very little news has surfaced since earlier this year, with the exception of the reveal that the upcoming PC version of the game can handle up to 120 FPS. Thankfully, it appears that we may have a potential release date on our hands, if another Gears of War related product is to be believed.
Amazon recently posted a listing for a new book titled Gears of War: Retrospective, jointly written by The Coalition and Microsoft Studios. The book – which is out next year – features various pieces of artwork and segments of history, which should delight hardcore fans of the series. The contents of the book isn’t why we’re here, though; the actual release date of Gears of War: Retrospective is April 23, 2019, which may also coincide with the release of Gears 5.

Seen above, Twitter user Wario64 points out that the release date for Gears 5 may be the same date as the release of Gears of War: Retrospective. There is, of course, no confirmation that the dates will line up, though the timeframe seems right and publishers do tend to sync up the release of alternative media mediums with the release of their games.
Here’s the description of the upcoming book:
“With its acclaimed gameplay, intense characters, and visceral action, the GEARS OF WAR franchise has helped define the modern shooter genre. GEARS OF WAR: RETROSPECTIVE is a visual showcase featuring artwork and imagery spanning the franchise’s history, including character and creature designs, cinematics, concept art, key visuals, 3D renders, and more. Material is drawn from across the GEARS OF WAR franchise and features art from the series’ upcoming entry – GEARS 5.”
Those looking to pre-order it can do so for $49.99, right here.
