There seems to be wide agreement that news about Gears Of War 6 will arrive this year, with the graphics already being hyped up.

It’s five years now since Gears 5 and Microsoft has barely ever referred to the series again since, even though the last game ended on a cliffhanger and developer The Coalition was created specifically to work on the franchise.

That’s no doubt because Gears 5 was a bit of a wet squib, reinforcing the idea that the series is in decline. But there is supposed to be a Netflix show underway and all of sudden three separate sources are talking about a new game reveal this summer.

During the latest episode of Kinda Funny Xcast, host Parris Lilly mentioned a theory that Gears Of War 6 would be teased this year, before multiple other insiders confirmed that it was actually true.

After watching the Marvel 1943 trailer, she said she tweeted wondering what Gears 6 would look like in Unreal 5, and got a message from a Gears developer.

‘Somebody from The Coalition made a cryptic little subtweet under me about that, which perked my ears on that.

‘So my conspiracy theory is that you do tease it this year, and then it’s probably a launch game for next gen. That seems to make sense to me,’ said Lilly.

The guest of the episode, insider Jeff Grubb, agreed with her, and added:

‘I will say, I’ve heard some stuff might be happening with Gears 6 this summer, so I think that tease sounds about right to me, Parris. That seems like what we can expect,’ he said.

The Verge’s Tom Warren then corroborated the claim, quoting Grubb in a tweet, adding the words ‘correct’.

As if that’s not enough, a third source, the widely respected shinobi602, added ‘Wait until you see Gears. People aren’t ready’ on the forum ResetEra,in response to comments about the graphics in Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2.

The obvious guess is that a reveal will be part of the Xbox Summer Showcase in June, although that wasn’t specifically mentioned by any of the sources.

There was no mention of a release date either, with no one apparently having any idea when the game might launch.
