The Future of Gears of War 4

Next month marks the first anniversary of Gears of War 4 (can you believe it?!) and the arrival of the final two maps in our 24 map plan for the first year of Gears of War 4. We’ve come a long way since October 2016 – here’s just a few stats on our journey so far:

Released 22 additional maps, with two more yet to drop, for a total of 34 maps in Gears 4!Added new multiplayer characters and weapon skins to earn and show off your skillsDelivered new game-changing features including Competitive Lobby, Rise of the Horde and a whole lot more!18 special events across Versus and Horde including holiday-themed favoritesAdded 38 achievements and 1000G to showcase your Gears skills

Stats aren’t the only story of this journey though. You – our amazing fans – have played more than 10 BILLION minutes of Gears of War 4. You’ve helped us refine the game with valuable tuning feedback, entertained us with your streams and videos, and humbled us with your stories of friendship, competition and even love over the past 11 months. All of this drives us every day at the studio and we want to thank you for the incredible support so far.

So does this journey end with our final map drop in October?

Not at all. Though October may signal the end of our monthly maps and feature updates for Gears of War 4, we’re far from done.
