Super happy that Gears 5 is coming to PC like 4 but I have a question for the devs if they are reading this forum :
Could one day Gears 2 and Gears 3 make their way to PC as well ? I think it would be amazing to have the (almost) entire Gears collection on the platform.
Is there any way we can send this forward to developers ? All I want is Microsoft/The Coalition to be aware that there is a demand for the two best games in the series to come to PC.
Actually no, Gears 2 and 3 are emulated on Xbox One X. They aren’t native ports. They do have upgrades obviously, but they are still 30fps games if I’m correct.
I have no problem imagining old games like those running easily at 60fps on Xbox One.
Rereleasing those two on PC would be very smart, especially since Game Pass is now officially on Windows 10.
Gears 5 is releasing on PC (Winstore and Steam), Gears 4 could be available on Steam as well while they are it. Spencer said more Microsoft games would be coming to Steam, future but also perhaps older games which are actually Windows Store exclusives.
I honestly don’t have much to add. If Microsoft don’t see the point in releasing older 360 games on PC then nothing I say will ever convince them. I’m not even certain they ever had that conversation.
2). I acknowledge they are emulated on Xbox One, I didn’t actually claim they were direct ports.
3). I have no issues with accepting Xbox One could do 60FPS in these old games either.
4). Microsoft has committed to PC but time will tell to see how that works out. So far, so good.
5). Correct, it’s up to Microsoft if they will bring Xbox 360 Games to PC. I find this unlikely and at best, we should push for Remasters. Especially with the next gen Xbox coming soon, it would be a massive leap to go from Xbox 360 to Project Scarlet, and likewise, to PC.
IMO remasters are lame and always die too quickly, so I don’t even want them wasting their time on it. I’d rather just a clean port over a remaster.
UE was good, but died so fast because people had already played too much of it from their past. Now for Gears 2-3… those games are beyond flawed, way more so than Gears 1. I honestly don’t think the versus would last long at all even if they were excellent remasters.
I have no desire of playing ranked or anything on Gears 2-3 remasters. I just want the campaign and private matches lol
I misread parts of your previous posts then. Still somewhat odd that Microsoft has not formelly rereleased a proper Gears trilogy with updated graphics (we know UE3 is scalable) at 60fps on Xbox One and PC.
I’m wondering what’s stopping them.
Regardless I merely created this thread to gather some opinions and perhaps catch the eye of The Coalition.
There truly is no other way to engage with devs these days, and I’m not wasting my energy spamming their twitter account. Reddit was also not an option, too many threads already. Don’t even get me started with petitions as I dislike the tone, I don’t want to act entitled. I think there is genuine strategic interest there for Microsoft, this is not about pleasing me personally, not to mention I’m not the only one who would love for those games to be on PC.
I replayed Gears 2 on X and I’d love to fully replay it at 144hz. Those games would shine at such high framerates.
Thanks to anyone who commented, I really appreciate it. Ultimately this is not going to move the needle, it should be obvious that Gears 2 and 3 belong on PC with the rest of the series, alas Microsoft/The Coalition probably have their minds elsewhere.
