Why Is Gears 5 Constantly Bugged + Broken?

Why can’t they pay someone full time to just play the game everyday and report?

Every week there is something new.
Muffled game audio, no sound effects, daily disconnects, disbanded lobbies. weapons from character vanish, boomshot fires fake shots blah blah blah.

What did they change to make people happy to result in these side effects? :

They do, they’re called QA Testers, Quality Assurance.

Thing is… and bear with me here… they’re HUMAN, and humans make mistakes, miss things etc.

It’s also not always QA, sometimes fixes get pulled last minute and will go in a later update. Nowadays updates are like busses, they’re scheduled at regular intervals (and yes, that can still mean they skip without releasing one) and you work to get whatever fixes you can into the next one before it ships, will never get fixes for all bugs into the next one, unless it’s a VERY small/simple project, not a video game.

If you wait to release an update that you are 100% sure does not have any bug in it… you likely spent years solely on that update and by the time it’s released, no one cares anymore as they’ve presumed your project is abandoned having never had an update for years it took.

However, for a more in-depth and industry-backed experienced answer, might I suggest you visit to https://askagamedev.tumblr.com and ask “Why Didn’t QA find This Specific Bug???” since Developers are contracted to non-disclosure for their own studio/projects.

Matchmaking is terrible, team balancing is a mess too. Wish they stop having 1000 playlists that no one uses

Doesn’t exist.

I agree, I know games have bugs every so often. But so many at a given time? How sad.

You mean the deep venom bug? Just don’t play Venom Run, and if you do restart your game afterwards.

Judging by the number of very obvious bugs that keep slipping through one of these statements is unquestionable correct:

  • There is no qa team, or a severely understaffed qa team

  • The qa team is incompetent

  • The developers take no notice of the bugs the qa team find

Xbox. My God, so true man. They need to stop making changes and fix what is already there first. I just was in a guardian match at the start. And it glitches so that every round ended up in a stalemate.

No. It’s in horde. Can happen any time you d/c and come back in or join in late or get downed.

Perhaps the QA team is very competent and they find many more bugs that us players no nothing about and TC have their team working to fix.
