E3 2019 is right around the corner, and with the wealth of exciting game news to look forward to, it makes sense that some would leak a bit early. Not only do these leaks suggest new games and trailers, they also offer exciting details about upcoming games like Gears 5. Based on reporting over on Prima Games, a document from Microsoft outlines what gamers can expect during the Gears 5 section of Microsoft’s E3 2019 press conference.
Gears 5 Info Leaked Ahead of E3
Gears of War 5 will likely be included in the lineup for Microsoft’s E3 2019 press conference, though until that press conference goes live, there’s no way to tell what will be show. Except, a document that recently leaked and appears to be from Microsoft may provide hints as to what gamers can expect.
As with all leaks, we recommend viewing the following information with a skeptical eye, as there’s no way for us to verify this document’s legitimacy and contents until officially confirmed by Microsoft. Below, we’ve included the document and a full text breakdown of the info it contains.
“Positioning Statement: Gears 5 is the highly-anticipated sequel for one of the most acclaimed video game franchises. Coming exclusively to Xbox One and Windows in 2019.
25 Word: The world is crumbling and your enemies uniting. As Kait you must journey across the biggest, most beautiful Gears world to fight for what’s left.

Keep in mind that much of the information above dropped with the Gears 5 announcement trailer last year at E3 2018. Of course, confirmation that Gears 5 will have both local and online split-screen co-op is an undoubtedly exciting premise, along with cross-play for Xbox One and PC players.
Other details suggest that Gears 5 will offer a massive map for players to explore and will be the largest Gears map to day. While we can’t verify the authenticity of the document, the wording and contents definitely feel legitimate. We’ll leave it up to you, though. Do you think this is a genuine leak from Microsoft ahead of E3 2019, or will we get a slightly different look at Gears 5? Let us know down in the comments below!
