What happened to PC splitscreen?

The Coalition promised us split-screen on PC in Escape but I can’t see any way to do this. Lies again?

This is exactly what I was trying to figure out! According to PC Gamer this was supposed to be possible https://www.pcgamer.com/gears-5-will-support-3-player-splitscreen-on-pc/ could anyone from The Coalition confirm or deny this

We got screwed. It’s official. They hype on other modes being splitscreen was not true:

This is such an extreme letdown. Was hoping I could play horde in splitscreen with my wife.

We haven’t been able to play gears together now since gears 3.

Hopefully we’ll be able to play using a secondary pc and family sharing on pc. I’m not buying two copies of gamepass or the game. Even if this works, it’s really inconvenient

Definitely disappointed myself as well was looking forward to versus and horde split screen

Very disappointing, considering the source of that PC Gamer article was a quote from this conference: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yxPBXNuX6Xs&t=59m05s

He clearly says: “…and we’re supporting 3 player split-screen on PC” while discussing the new Escape mode. So there’s your lie. This really is a game-breaker, no matter how many skins/maps they add to the game I don’t think I’m going to feel motivated as a PC consumer to pay any more money after the $2 for 2 months game pass expires. Gears 4 I bought outright without knowing the campaign was the only split-screen mode and got burned then too.
