Gears 5 Predictions

Most of these predictions are baseless, just my gut feeling.

Cole Train Death
Oscar Death
Female Carmine, who will die
JD will betray Kait and Del somehow
Myrrah will temporarily take over kaits body and have a confrontation with Marcus
Sam and Baird have a young Son
Jinn death
Hoffman death
Major attack on the COG capital city.
Adam fenix data disc will be used
Reynas Necklace is used like a key
Oacar turns into santa and fights zombie raam who has a shiny red nose


Oooh I like some of these. I was really hoping we would see Sam and Bairds kid of some sort in this game.

Oscar is almost certainly the person Kait is upset over dying, the character is covered but he is the only family she has left and one of the only people she would react like that with

I can’t see them killing off Cole or any of Delta until Gears of War 6, Hoffman may die but he’s probably going to die in a heroic last stand or something.

Jinn dying would not surprise me

Cole is dead! :wink:

I would legit cry if cole died no homo😂 cole and Marcus personality wise have been my 2 faves since day 1…doms death Had me hurt back in the day too man …really gotta appreciate how much epic games made you feel for the original delta squad like u were there with them

Gears 5 will come out the gate hot till October then I’ll begin to lose its player base and then November will lose even more

if they do kill Cole Train they might kill off a lot of the fanbase too, Cole is a loved character

everyone expected Dom to die after GOW 2 and how he found his wife, dude was broken by it, we see how depressed he in in GOW 3 before his sacrifice

I predict there will be guns

JD will find out he has a sister he doesn’t know about. “JD, I am your sister”

Then she proceeds to kill everyone and everything. The end.

Ever since Gears 3 campaign I’ve wanted to see this. It’d be great if that sarcastic conversation turned into reality.


  • Since that Escape screenshot that included Paduk and two common Gears like characters, I feel like there’s a female Carmine as well. Wouldn’t surprise me;
  • Return/mention of old characters that weren’t included in Gears 4. I bet we’ll see stuff related to characters like Dizzy (perhaps his twins?), Clayton quite likely;
  • I expect some form of Escape being included in Campaign;
  • At least one settlement being overrun;
  • Switching between characters. I don’t see JD going completely off screen when Dell and Kait go Tomb Raiding. I’m betting on stuff such as JD and Marcus protecting settlements;
  • Flashbacks to specific special events, like at the start of Gears 4. Maybe some (unplayable) flashbacks of New Hope Facility;
  • Campaign DLC. RAAM’s Shadow was a huge success, people were asking for DLC in Gears 4. Something Pendulum Wars related content would be excellent;
  • Classic delta survives. Marcus now seems to be fully included with Dell, JD and Kait. I don’t see a possible situation that would involve the death of Baird and Cole;
  • All previous Gears campaigns were in a way predictable: you knew that [Marcus/Baird/JD] would fight a big boss, kill it and save the day. This is actually the first time where the end is more unpredictable. I’m expecting a major cliffhanger, like Kait disappearing or taken captive, that won’t be explained until Gears 6.

Well we’ve had years to get used to them. Dell, JD and Kait are relatively new, introducing new lead characters in an old storyline is always difficult. I’ve grown used to them, even a character lacking a serious backstory and personality like Dell (I presume they’ll make up for it in Gears 5).

I agree with a lot of this! I would love to see more connections to old characters and I like all the story beats you listed.

Since Kait and Del are the more story driven exploration side of the story I’d like a few chapters as Marcus and JD with the focus on action and bigger gun fights. Like what you suggested them defending towns or maybe storming a hive.

I predict people will die.

You just want Marcus to go after another person he cares for, don’t you? It’s quite clear him and Kait got closer between Gears 4 and 5(which I expect Ascendance will cover/explain to some degree), and I’m not sure if he’d let another person go.

Also, it’s Del, not Dell. Unless you’re purposedly writing it like that.

Thats the natural progresion of a launch…

Not this year my friend that’s why they have a September release date
The return of the 800-pound gorilla in call of duty Star wars done by respawn and of course Doom this is some hefty hefty game developers
I play escalation 4 to 5 hours a day I hear nothing but good news about game pass gears game pass will do very well but as for TC they don’t trust them very unfortunate
from what I’ve seen on escalation looks like they built that for eleague and esports not the consumer
if they spent as much time on versus matchmaking as they do on esports they would have a hit on their hand
My prediction is January February this will be a sea of thieves

Santa Oscar versus Rudolph the Kryll Covered Raamdeer would be a really cool way to just drench the franchise in muddy shart water.

After hearing the campaign is going to be “open world” I feel like TC is changing too much of the game just because they can. They may pick up some new fans with that but lose so many more.

From the reported changes and gameplay i’ve seen so far I can already tell I’m going to be playing Borderlands3 far more than Gears5.

Its not open world, open area. For example, you can explore the whole of new hope, but only when youre their.

Whoops, not sure why I keep referring to him as Dell. Should I repeat, feel free to correct me again.

I wasn’t actually referring to Marcus, I just think that a cliffhanger is a real possibility. In a way it would be quite a cliche if Marcus/JD would go and rescue Kait.

I somewhat doubt that anything will happen to Kait… at least, on the Swarm side. Have doubts anything would make her go over to them. But whether she will return to the COG after her journey is something I’m not entirely certain of.

As for what I meant with the whole Marcus thing, I do think he would want go after her first thing if something happened or she disappeared and Del was unable to find her before returning and informed the others. But whether that, and how JD chooses to go about it, is shown in 5 or 6, that’s another matter. But if Marcus chose to go out for her, he would also have the argument of the whole Locust relation not working out in favor of the humans if they ever captured Kait.

But I must mention I hate cliffhangers. Especially for a matter like this. I’d want a conclusion to this, even if it was that Kait just went off on her own completely and isolated herself from everyone, or joined another community of Outsiders. She’d probably rather kill herself than let herself be turned into some… thing by the Swarm, if they would even do that if she was captured, and unable to free herself before they did anything with her. Even if she freed herself the chances of making it out of a hive alone are… probably next to nothing.
