Weird question about gears

(Kevin D N) #1

Do you think that gears pop will be on the switch eventually. I know initially it might seem like a hard no but gears of war used to be strictly for Microsoft platforms but it’s going to mobile phones now and with the Nintendo collaboration with Minecraft it might make sense

As a Switch is a console, I would say no, there’s no chance.

Also TC are targeting the hundreds of millions of mobile devices - not just the few million Switch users.

agreed. I would be very surprised if it appeared on the Switch even with the cooperation with Minecraft going on. Gears being a MS exclusive I’d be shocked if it ever graced another console.

Minecraft is a interesting example because Microsoft didn’t originally own the IP and by the time they acquired Mojang, the game either had or was going to release on non-MS platforms.

On Switch? Doubtful as it’s a Nintendo title.
Even on crossplay in Rocket League the Gears Armadillo will appear as a default vechicle to those on Switch/PC instead of Armadillo.

I feel both Pop and Tactics will eventually come to the Xbox with some changes.
