At one time we should have had remasters of the core games in the Weapons of war franchise, and frankly, they were a long time coming.

The series was quite groundbreaking for the Xbox 360, especially as the franchise’s story and gameplay stacked up in Gears of War 3 – arguably the biggest achievement of the series.

While the number of players in the series has dwindled, fans still have fond memories of it, and perhaps a series of remasters could give the franchise a little jolt. And apparently the comeback of the original games is still on the agenda.

Gears Of War Remasters To Come (Maybe)

The Gears of War Remastered Collection (a working title) was once rumored to be on the way, and we haven’t seen any of it – but the leaker who revealed the collection’s existence is doubling down.

Seasoned Gaming contributor PeterP_85 has shared the news that respected leaker Shpeshal Nick, who initially revealed the leaks, has insisted that the collection is still happening. “Would be a great way to recap and reinvest sooner gears 6,” he says.

“I keep telling @JezCorden and @Rand_al_Thor_19 I won’t back down,” Shpeshal replies Nick. “It’s happening.”

It’s an interesting implication, and the return of the series’ classic games this year would be a treat for fans – especially if they went straight to Game Pass.

Would the Gears Of War Remasters go to Game Pass?

While we’re entering the realm of theory, it would be a big surprise if these highly anticipated remasters didn’t head straight to Game Pass.

The latest addition to the series (Gears 5) made a comfortable home on the subscription service and racked up some great player numbers, so it would be quite a shock if Xbox decided to ask players to pay full price for them.

A return to the world of Gears would be great to see this year from xbox like Gears is in good company as one of Xbox’s premier franchises. With Netflix working on a Weapons of war movie, shall we say more Gears is certainly nothing to smell.
