Microsoft tapped Splash Damage, a United Kingdom studio that handled PC ports of earlier games in the series, to make Gears Tactics.

We knew before Microsoft's E3 conference even kicked off that there was a chance that there would be up to three Gears of War games announced-and we haven't been disappointed! Gears Tactics is also the first Gears game to be specifically designed for PC gamers.

The game is due in 2019 for Android and iOS. A non-gameplay teaser trailer suggests that Gears Pop! will not be targeting the hardcore gaming crowd.

Next up, Microsoft announced two more Gear of War games exclusively for Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs. Gears 5, Gears Pop!


"As Kait, you'll journey across the biggest and most handsome world we've ever created while the war for humanity escalates on two fronts - outside the capital city and within Kait herself..."

We'll be waiting a while longer to find out more, as Gears Pop won't be landing on iOS and Android until sometime next year. Unlike XCOM, however, Gears Tactics will also include massive boss battles on a large scale.

Are you excited about the upcoming Gears of War sequel and spinoff?
