If you’re a Gears of War fan, I commend your patience. It’s been three years since Gears 5 released and Gears 6 is nowhere to be seen. Admittedly, the delay is down to the fact that The Coalition are switching over to Unreal Engine 5 but still, fans need their content fix.
Well, Netflix will soon be giving them that. The streaming service has teamed up with The Coalition to create a Gears of War film in addition to an animated series, “with the potential for more series to follow.” I can think of one actor who would be perfect as Marcus Fenix. You know who I’m talking about, Dave Bautista. You’re here for game-related news though. It turns out, a new Gears of War game is on the way - but it’s not Gears 6 if that’s what you were hoping for.
Speaking of adaptations, The Last of Us premieres this Sunday 15 January. Take a look at the trailer below.
Steamforged Games took to Twitter to reveal Gears of War: The Card Game. Again, it’s not what fans were perhaps expecting but hey, it’s something. Details are a little thin on the ground. All we really know is that the game is “coming soon.” The team tweeted, “The rumours are true. Be ready. Gears of War: The Card Game deploys in 2023.”

It wouldn’t be Steamforged Games’ first video game tie-in. The UK-based company also created Elden Ring - The Board Game and Dark Souls: The Roleplaying Game. Elden Ring - The Board Game was funded via a Kickstarter campaign so while it hasn’t been confirmed, it wouldn’t be a stretch to imagine that Gears of War: The Card Game will follow a similar path.
