Microsoft surprises its followers with a new mobile game that takes Gears of War to an entirely new fan base with Gears Pop!.
Prior to the announcements provided by Microsoft during E3, rumors were circulating of the possibility of three new additions to the Gears of War franchise. While, the rumor turned out to be fairly accurate the one inconsistency was, perhaps, the most surprising.
Along with Gears 5, a continuation of the 2016 release Gears of War 4, and Gears Tactics, a turn-based strategy game for the PC, the third Gears of War that was supposedly to be announced during the Microsoft Conference was to be in the form of the ever popular battle royale play-style. So, when the announcement was made that Funko Pop was pairing with the ‘M’-rated franchise it was a bit of a shock.
Regardless, the interesting pairing is appealing to both Gears of War fans and Funko Pop enthusiast. Not a lot of game play information on the adorable combination was released during the events of E3; it was announced that the game will be released for IOS and Android mobile devices in 2019.
