Gears Tactics was a big game for the tech giant, Microsoft Inc. It is a splashy yet strategic spin on the Gears franchise. This franchise served many purposes. It showed that Microsoft is willing to invest heavily in the PC games sector. The franchise served some specific purposes as well. It clearly showcased that Microsoft is just as committed to Xbox Game Pass on Windows as it is on Xbox consoles. This says a lot about the diversification policy of the ever-growing Microsoft.
Want some reactions? Ask Tyler Bielman, the Design Director at Microsoft’s Gears-focused studio called ‘The Coalition‘. He had only three words to say when asked about the reaction to the game. “We were thrilled” are those three magic words which clearly reveal the intention of Microsoft.
Let’s hear the full statement from the Design Director for better understanding:
“We knew that we had captured some magic in bringing that Gears intensity and action and combining it with a thoughtful turn-based-experience, and we were really happy with the reviews; we are really happy with everyone’s response- the response on PC Game Pass was tremendous, so yeah, we were really happy with it. We think it’s a really cool addition to the Gears franchise”.
Gears Tactics Unfolded Like Never Before
Gear up for the Gear Tactics Unfold! This new franchise of Microsoft was developed for PC version first. And why not? In the end, PC gamers hold a large chunk of online gaming users.
However, change is the new normal. So, the console version of the game was also built simultaneously, and Microsoft has confirmed its release on November 10 this year. It’s the same day when Xbox Series X and Series’ S’ next-gen consoles go on sale. So, Microsoft is in a mood to leave no stone unturned when it comes to competitive games in the gaming market.
Gears Tactics is the biggest first-party launch title Microsoft Inc. has for the new Xbox consoles. However, there are some arguments about this fact. Halo Infinite is already delayed into the next year. So, Gears Tactics is the only gaming console debut for one of Microsoft’s premier franchises that you will be able to play on the launch day itself.
Did we forget about the PC version? At least Microsoft hasn’t. The Coalition, Microsoft’s Gears-focused studio, had to figure out how to translate Gear’s fast-paced action to this game, which falls into the rationally console-unfriendly genre.
